Palm Beach County Elder Abuse

Palm Beach County Elder Abuse If you want to sue a long-term care facility over the abuse or neglect of an aging loved one, it is important that you speak to an attorney as soon as possible.

A Palm Beach County elder abuse attorney from Donaldson & Weston can assess your case for free, and if your claim has merit, our team will launch an immediate investigation to gather all available evidence of liability and damages. With many decades of combined experience, our lawyers have a skillset and resources that few law firms possess.

What Questions Might My Elder Abuse Lawyer Ask During the Initial Consultation?

Every personal injury claim is unique, so the types of questions your lawyer may ask during the initial consultation will depend on the facts surrounding your case. Below are a few common questions your attorney might ask to find out if you have grounds for a claim and how to proceed with the investigation:

  • What was the nature of the abuse or neglect your loved one suffered?
  • When did you first suspect nursing home abuse?
  • Was the abuse a single incident or ongoing?
  • Were you or any other family members ever present when the abuse occurred?
  • How has your elderly relative suffered as a result of the abuse?
  • Did you inform any administrators of the problem, and if so, did they do anything about it?
  • Did the facility promise to handle the investigation internally?
  • Do administrators know you are pursuing legal action?
  • Have you had any correspondence with the nursing home’s insurance provider?
  • Do you have any proof of liability?
  • Do you have any proof of damages?
  • Have you spoken to other residents or their families about what is going on?
  • Do you have reason to believe that other residents are being abused at the facility?
  • Has anyone in your family posted about the abuse on social media?

It’s a good idea to prepare for these questions before your initial consultation. You should also bring any evidence you have gathered including photographs of your loved one’s injuries and medical records.

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 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.
