Unfortunately, nursing home abuse is a common occurrence. Abuse can happen at any type of nursing home – independent living homes, assisted living homes, skilled nursing facilities, memory care homes, home care, and more.

The most common types of nursing home abuse include but are not limited to:

  • Neglect
  • Abandonment
  • Physical abuse

  • Verbal abuse

When you or a loved one has been a victim of abuse in a nursing home, file a legal claim and hold the at-fault party liable. Nursing home abuse can result in a wide range of damages that can bring forth legal action, including:

  • General or noneconomic damages, such as pain and suffering and mental anguish
  • Personal injury resulting in medical expenses and long-term health conditions
  • Wrongful death

How quickly do I need to file a nursing home abuse lawsuit?

If you’d like to file a legal claim against the nursing home and/or its staff member(s), you’ll need to do so within the period specified by Florida’s statute of limitations. The time you have to file a claim and get compensated for your losses through a lawsuit depends on the claim you’ll be filing.

For personal injury claims, you need to file a claim within four years of the date of the abuse. For wrongful death claims, families need to file a claim within two years of the family member’s death. Outside of these time frames, you will likely not be able to receive compensation through a legal claim.
