At Your Insurance Attorney, we understand the importance of keeping our loved ones safe and secure, particularly when they are in a care facility. No one should have to fear for their safety while receiving care in a nursing home. Unfortunately, cases of nursing home staff or other residents committing attacks on vulnerable residents are not uncommon. At Your Insurance Attorney, our attorneys Nathan P. Carter, Michael A. Mandeville, Brian C. Guppenberger and Joshua A. Machlus have dedicated their careers to fighting for the rights of nursing home residents and holding facilities accountable for neglect and abuse.
As experienced members of The American Trial Lawyers Association, AAJ Leaders Forum, Florida Legal Elite and American Board of trial Advocates, our attorneys have been handling these cases for almost 30 years and have a proven track record of success in holding nursing homes accountable for staff or resident attacks.
When a resident is attacked by staff or another resident in a nursing home, it is a clear indication that the facility has failed in its duty to provide a safe and secure environment. These attacks can result in serious injuries and can also lead to emotional trauma for the victim and their family.
In order to prevent these types of attacks, nursing homes must properly screen and train staff, as well as have adequate staffing levels to ensure that residents are properly supervised. They must also have policies and procedures in place to address and prevent any type of abuse or violence.
