When we entrust the care of a loved one to a nursing home facility, and that trust is betrayed, the staff and managers of that facility should be held accountable for their actions and brought to justice. Although justice is the right of every person, more often than not, justice is something you must fight for. We are ready to fight for you to secure the results you deserve for the heartache, injury, or loss you have suffered.
At Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A., we are dedicated to pursuing justice for our Fort Lauderdale clients who have been victimized by their caretakers. Our South Florida firm has secured legal victories and fair compensation for our clients for more than 70 years
Nursing home and elder abuse can be broken down into four categories.
Types of Abuse in Nursing Homes:
- Physical abuse: physically harming a resident by beating them or unnecessarily restraining them.
- Emotional and verbal abuse: degrading a resident through their actions or things they say.
- Sexual abuse: sexually assaulting a resident who is under their care.
- Financial abuse: exploiting a resident out of their belongings or finances.
No matter which type of abuse you or your loved one suffered at the hands of their caretaker, our Fort Lauderdale nursing home abuse attorneys can pursue the compensation you deserve.

Types of Neglect that Can Happen in Nursing Homes
Nursing home neglect is far more common than most people realize. Many nursing home facilities are mismanaged and understaffed, resulting in serious injuries that should have been prevented.
Signs of Nursing Home Neglect:
- Bedsores/pressure ulcers.
- Malnutrition and dehydration.
- Poor hygiene and lack of personal grooming.
- Falls and wandering off.
- Administering the wrong medication or dosage.
If you suspect that your loved one is suffering the neglect by the nursing home staff, you should get in touch with a Fort Lauderdale nursing home abuse lawyer from our firm right away so that we can begin investigating your claim and collecting evidence.
