A Proven Tampa Lawyer For Nursing Home Abuse Victims And Their Families
People who must place elderly parents and other family members into full-time care facilities do so with great concern. They have no choice but to trust that their loved one’s needs for proper treatment and supervision will be met. Sadly, if you placed your trust in a nursing home’s staff and professional standards only to later learn that your loved one has been seriously neglected or abused, you are far from alone.
Have You Discovered Severe Neglect Or Abuse Of A Vulnerable Family Member?
Violations of applicable standards of care in nursing homes are more common than any of us would like to believe. If your loved one suffered a serious, life-threatening injury or passed away in a Tampa-area nursing home or other care facility, attorney Tim Prugh and our legal team want to know about it.
Mr. Prugh is a Florida Bar Board-Certified Civil Trial Specialist with extensive experience representing victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. He is committed to providing you with clear, practical and realistic guidance on the legal viability and value of your potential claim involving, for example:
- A fall resulting in a broken hip, traumatic brain injury or other catastrophic injuries, often due to the lack of proper supervision and/or failure to maintain safe conditions in the home
- Your loved one’s infliction with bedsores — also called pressure sores or decubitus ulcers — which are caused by failure to reposition a bedridden patient often enough, and create extreme risk for deadly infections
- The death of your loved one in a nursing home if you have strong reason to suspect that necessary medical treatment was not sought or the death was related to other neglect or abuse
