Palm City Nursing Home Neglect

Palm City Nursing Home Neglect If you suspect an elderly loved one is being abused or neglected by nursing home staff, you have the right to pursue justice. Depending on the circumstances, that might mean commencing both civil and criminal legal proceedings.

Although the criminal case will be out of your hands once charges have been filed and the prosecutor takes over, you will play a major role in any subsequent civil proceedings. To win a settlement or verdict, you will need strong evidence to prove liability and damages. Unfortunately, gathering this evidence, interviewing eyewitnesses, arranging expert witness testimony, and taking other necessary steps are both time consuming and complicated.

This is where a Palm City nursing home abuse attorney from Donaldson & Weston can help.

We have assisted hundreds of clients in complicated, high-stakes personal injury cases, and we can help you, too. Call 772-266-5555 to schedule a free consultation with one of our compassionate nursing home neglect lawyers in Palm City.

Will I Have to Go to Trial?

If your aging loved one has been abused or neglected, you have enough to worry about without navigating through complex legal proceedings—so it’s only natural to want a fast and fair resolution to your claim. Fortunately, depending on the facts of your case, the opposing party should be motivated to settle, as well. After all, healthcare facilities do not want the bad press that a lawsuit will bring.

Additionally, they should have adequate insurance coverage for such scenarios, which means it might be in their financial best interests to settle. Going to trial comes with the added expenses of court costs and attorneys’ fees.

Because both parties can benefit from settling, personal injury claims rarely go to court; however, since there is always the chance your case will make it to trial, it is essential to hire an attorney with litigation experience.

At Donaldson & Weston, we have an extensive background litigating complicated cases with millions of dollars on the line. We will prepare your case for trial even if a settlement is the expected outcome.

Below are a few factors that may influence whether your family’s claim ends up in court:

  • The extent of the damages;
  • The opposing party’s willingness to cooperate;
  • The strength of your evidence;
  • Whether the insurance adjuster disputes liability;
  • Whether the case warrants punitive damages; and
  • Whether you intend to sue multiple parties.
