Contact West Palm Beach Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer David Glatthorn
When loved ones move into a nursing home, we expect they will be treated with dignity and respect. That's why it's so infuriating when nursing homes abuse or neglect people. We trusted the nursing home to care for our loved ones. And they violated that trust.
Florida has many nursing homes throughout the state. That might explain why examples of nursing home abuse and neglect are so common here. But that doesn't make such abuses right. That's why West Palm Beach personal injury lawyer David Glatthorn believes strongly in holding nursing homes accountable for their actions.
Nursing home negligence can take many forms. Sometimes, our loved ones are neglected and ignored. Other times, the people we trust to care for them physically abuse them. In either case, it's often hard to detect that someone is a victim of nursing home negligence. That's because the nursing home staff often deny any wrongdoing. Also, the people being abused or neglected are often too scared or weak to speak up about their abuse.
That's why it's critical you contact the police. Then contact Florida personal injury lawyer David Glatthorn. The sooner you take action, the sooner the abuse can stop.
