Nursing Home Abuse – Elder Neglect Attorneys Serving West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale & Miami, FL
Nursing home abuse is one of the biggest problems facing our elderly across our country. Because of the reduced number of people qualified to work in these facilities coupled with the growing trend of large corporations buying out these facilities, it is hard to verify safe conditions for their patients. Most nursing homes have cut back staff or hired low skilled (low paid) workers so that the corporations can maximize their profits. This type of bottom line management has led to a growing trend of nursing home abuse in Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, West Palm Beach, Miami, Florida, where many people come to retire.
Our nursing home abuse attorneys at The Broderick Law Firm have helped the elderly fight for their rights when they have been victimized by the large corporations. We have assisted clients that have been victims of a wide variety of injuries that are becoming all too common lately. Because of the rising trend of nursing home abuse injuries, we have focused on representing clients that need help.
