Jupiter Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers


For many Jupiter families, the decision to place a loved one in the care of a nursing home can be emotionally taxing, but nevertheless a viable option when an elderly person suffers from an illness or requires special monitoring for increased medical concerns.

Unfortunately, when facilities fail to reasonably provide the level of attention a patient needs, physical, emotional, and financial abuse can occur.

If you or your loved one has been the victim of a nursing home’s negligence, recklessness, or willful misconduct, contact our experienced Jupiter nursing home abuse lawyers at the Shiner Law Group to discuss your legal rights and options, as you may be entitled to financial compensation.

Jupiter Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

How Common Is Nursing Home Abuse?

According to recent studies, nursing home abuse and neglect has increased over time, with the National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) reporting at least 30% of negligible incidents affecting facilities in the United States.

Despite the best precautions, this form of maltreatment costs billions of dollars per year in medical expenses and exacerbates the risk of distress, depression, increased health problems, and wrongful death in elderly patients.

The nursing home abuse lawyers at the Shiner Law Group identify several major areas of negligence:

  • Neglect
  • Physical abuse
  • Emotional abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Sexual abuse

Families and nursing home residents can take proactive steps to mitigate the risk of abuse and neglect, such as advanced planning (i.e., designating power of attorney, creating a living will, etc.), making frequent and unannounced visits, speaking with nursing home personnel, and understanding the signs of abuse and your legal rights.

Recovering Damages in a Florida Nursing Abuse Claim

Through complex insurance loopholes and abstract incorporation methods, the insurance industry employs tactics to reduce financial liability and will take advantage of parties who lack the benefit of legal representation.

While patients may be reluctant to bring a legal cause of action against negligible parties due to fear, shame, or embarrassment, an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer can aggressively advocate for a broad range of damages to secure financial compensation and hold at-fault parties responsible for their egregious behavior.

The statute of limitations for a personal injury claim is four years in the state of Florida or two years in cases of wrongful death. While hardly an exhaustive list, the nursing home abuse lawyers at the Shiner Law Group provide a list of damages most sought after in a nursing home abuse claim:

  • Pain and suffering
  • Medical treatment and rehabilitation
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
