Royal Palm Beach Elder Abuse

Royal Palm Beach Elder Abuse

Realizing that an elderly loved one has been mistreated at a nursing home is utterly devastating. Long-term care facilities are supposed to provide quality care in a safe environment, but elder neglect and abuse are alarmingly common in Florida.

Fortunately, victims and their families have the right to pursue compensation from the liable parties. Although filing a claim will not undo the trauma your loved one has experienced, it may provide your family with the means to arrange for high-quality care moving forward. To determine if you have grounds for a claim, contact Donaldson & Weston.

We have assisted hundreds of families in personal injury and wrongful death cases. Call 561-299-3999 to schedule a free consultation with one of the leading elder abuse attorneys in Royal Palm Beach.

Factors to Consider When Hiring a Royal Palm Beach Elder Abuse Attorney

Nursing home abuse and neglect occur far more often than they should, but chances are you have never needed to hire an elder neglect lawyer before. Therefore, you may not know what to look for in legal counsel. And since Florida has a lot of elder abuse firms because of its high senior population, it can be challenging to narrow down the options.

Here are some critical factors to consider when seeking representation:

  • Trial Experience: Although most nursing home abuse claims do not actually make it to court, there is always the chance that yours will. Therefore, it is essential to find a firm that will prepare your case for trial, even if a settlement is the anticipated outcome. At Donaldson & Weston, we have many years of experience litigating complex, high-stakes personal injury and wrongful death cases.

  • Positive Testimonials: Reviews from clients who have actually worked with the firm can give you an idea of what to expect. If others received quality and attentive representation, chances are you will, too.

  • Winning Strategies: The attorneys at Donaldson & Weston have a track record of success in elder abuse claims. Every case is unique, but our lawyers have an arsenal of winning strategies that they can tailor to your particular situation.

  • Honesty: A reputable attorney will discuss all possible outcomes of your case and explain which are most likely based on the relevant laws and past experience. Do not hire a lawyer who promises to achieve a particular outcome as this could mean they are only trying to secure your business.

  • Accessibility: Regardless of how many other cases the firm is handling at the moment, you should not have to wait days to receive a response to your calls and emails. At Donaldson & Weston, we make ourselves available after office hours to answer our clients’ questions.

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.

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.
