Nursing Home Injury

Representing Orlando, Tampa, Miami and Nearby Areas of Florida

With the passing of World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, we thought it important to once again touch on nursing home abuse and negligence. If you suspect that nursing home negligence may be occurring, it’s important that everything is documented immediately while everything is still fresh in your mind.

There are millions of cases of elder abuse that go unreported each year, to help protect our seniors we must take a stand and report it if we see it. There are several hotlines out there that you can contact and they will go out and document the incident and take witness statements.

It is also beneficial to call an attorney because in many cases we may find something that the family has no knowledge of.

If you suspect someone you love has been neglected in a nursing home in Orlando, contact Colling Gilbert Wright & Carter at (407) 712-7300 to speak with an experienced attorney.
