The most important step that you take will be to get help from an experienced and compassionate personal injury lawyer in North Port who has a record of helping nursing home abuse and neglect victims and their families. At Buckman & Buckman, for instance, we will know how to quickly launch an independent investigation of your case, including:
- Reviewing your loved one’s care plan
- Gathering and analyzing medical records
- Examining physical evidence of abuse or neglect
- Interviewing your loved one, staff members, residents and others
- Studying all available photos and videos.
Our firm may consult with doctors, nurses and others who can help us to determine whether your loved one has suffered injuries due to mistreatment within the facility. We can also serve as a liaison between your family and any local or state agencies that are also looking into your loved one’s situation.
If the evidence reveals abuse or neglect, Buckman & Buckman will take all necessary steps to seek accountability from those responsible for your loved one’s harm, including the direct caregivers and facility’s owner and operator. We will pursue compensation for all past and future medical expenses, pain, suffering, emotional distress and other damages that the mistreatment has caused.
Many nursing home abuse and neglect cases can be resolved through settlement negotiations. However, if necessary, we will be ready to present your case at trial. Our attorneys are highly skilled litigators who prepare cases for success in the courtroom.
