Hobe Sound Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys

Hobe Sound Nursing Home Neglect Nursing home abuse has become an epidemic in Florida. Despite regulations aimed at preventing abuse and neglect in long-term care facilities, an alarming number of senior citizens suffer egregious treatment at the hands of their caregivers.

Sexual, physical, financial, and emotional abuse all occur far too often in Hobe Sound nursing homes. If you recently discovered that a member of your family suffered abuse or neglect, contact Donaldson & Weston to discuss your case.

We have assisted hundreds of clients in personal injury and wrongful death claims, giving us a unique skillset and knowledge that few attorneys possess. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free case evaluation with a nursing home neglect lawyer in Hobe Sound.

Why You Should Hire a Hobe Sound Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Right Away

There are three primary reasons to seek legal counsel as soon as you suspect nursing home abuse or neglect has occurred. First, the sooner you file a claim, the sooner your family may be able to recover the funds needed to pay for medical bills and other damages.

Second, much of the evidence needed to prove liability and damages may be time sensitive. If you don’t start building your case until after such evidence has become unavailable, altered, or destroyed, your case may be difficult to win.

Third, the state of Florida imposes a strict deadline on nursing home abuse lawsuits. Plaintiffs must file their lawsuit before the statute of limitations has passed, or the court will almost certainly dismiss their case.

Typically, victims of nursing home abuse have two years from the date on which the abuse occurred—or the date on which the cause of action should have been discovered through reasonable diligence—to file the lawsuit. Even with the discovery rule, a nursing home abuse lawsuit cannot be filed after more than four years have passed since the cause of action accrued.

There are exceptions to these deadlines. For example, if the defendant concealed evidence or intentionally misrepresented facts related to the nursing home abuse or negligence, plaintiffs have up to six years to file a formal lawsuit; however, if you want to sue a government-run facility, the deadline may be much shorter and can vary depending on the jurisdiction and circumstances.

What Our Clients Say
★★★★★
The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston helped me get an amazing result on my case. Obviously I’ve been through a lot physically but I feel better now and the money really helped my family. When I was riding my bicycle I was hit by a truck that wasn't paying attention. I am not the suing type, but I would definitely hire this firm again. - M.P.

After my accident, i felt like I was being pulled in a bunch of different directions. I really didn't know what to do and all I wanted was someone to shoot me straight. The lawyers at the firm were so honest and definitely pointed me in the right direction. The staff was professional. I think it’s great that only attorneys work on my case, it definitely made me feel comfortable - D.L.
★★★★★
After my accident happened I waited to hear back from the insurance company for about 6 months. I just felt like they kept jerking me around. They even told me not to hire an attorney because it would mean less money in my pocket. I couldn't wait any longer because my bills were out of hand. I hired this firm and they were solid. I got a great result without having to go to court. - S.C.
