How Can an Attorney Help With My Nursing Home Abuse Case?
A nursing home abuse attorney can help establish the facts about your case to identify whoever is responsible for the abuse meted out to you or your loved one. They will conduct a thorough investigation, collect critical evidence to prove abuse, assess the extent of the harm caused to you or a loved one, and create a legal strategy to protect your rights.
Who Can Be Held Accountable for Nursing Home Abuse?
Various parties can be held accountable for nursing home abuse, including the nursing home staff, management, administrators, and even third-party contractors who interact with residents. Your attorney will help identify the negligent or abusive parties and take appropriate legal action against them.
What Is the Statute of Limitations on Filing a Nursing Home Abuse Lawsuit in West Palm Beach?
You have two years from the date of the incident to file a claim. However, this time limit may be extended under specific circumstances. A good example is when there is an intentional concealment or misrepresentation of facts that prevent you or a loved one from filing a claim sooner. In that case, your attorney may be able to raise this issue with the court and request an extension to the deadline.
