        “Excellent experience!”

        Excellent experience with very good results, I am very happy and satisfied with the Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice & Purtz law firm I, especially Mr. Christopher Smith who at all times during the process of my case was very honest, correct and efficient. I highly recommend this firm and this attorney because they really made a big difference to the results in my case.

        “Accident Case”

        Goldstein, Buckley, Cechman, Rice and Purtz, PA was the only law firm who would take our car accident case. Andrea Pleimling Smith was very thorough, explained everything in a very detailed fashion, and was easy to reach when questions arose. She kept us informed every step of the way. Without her, we would have suffered a severe financial loss due to an accident which was not our fault. Florida’s No Fault law is terrible and very unfair. Andrea and her team were very helpful in recouping all of the money we were required to spend!

        Thank you again for everything you did for me. Your compassion and concern was greatly appreciated. I have all the faith in the world with you by my side. If ever I know someone who needs an attorney, I will recommend your office. Everyone I had dealings with was very professional. Good job.

        Signs You Should Be on the Lookout For

        It’s very important that if you have any suspicions that your loved one is suffering from neglect or abuse at a nursing home, you take note of the signs. We want to be able to collect these signs in concrete evidence that we can use against the liable party and show them exactly what they did wrong. This will help our case become more successful.

        Unfortunately, a lot of the times with nursing home negligence or abuse it’s not blatantly obvious that it’s happening. Sometimes, it’s one acute incident and other times it’s small things that accumulate that you might not notice for quite some time, unfortunately. We want you to keep a look out for all of it. Take note of the condition that your loved one is living in and how their health seems to be. If they’re losing weight, ask why. If you notice bruises and unexplained injuries, you should be wary that they’re being mistreated. Collect the evidence as best as you can then reach out to us.

        One sign that shows whether or not a facility is mistreating their patients is the conditions that they leave them in. If you notice that their bedding isn’t changed and they have soil themselves and it seems to be that they were sitting on it for quite some time, you should take note of that. If your loved one is looking unhealthy and they seem weak, it might be because of malnutrition. We want to keep note of minor as well as dramatic changes in their well-being.

        Another type of abuse is psychological or mental abuse, which is quite common. Unfortunately, not everybody is in the profession to take care of people and they mistreat their patients. If you noticed that your loved one’s mental health is suffering or they seem scared and nervous around certain staff members, you should consider that a sign that they might be suffering some sort of psychological abuse.

        It’s better to be safe than sorry. If you notice them experiencing anything that could indicate neglect or abuse it’s time to reach out to our Southwest Florida nursing home abuse lawyers to see what can be done. Do you want to make sure that you’re taking its best care of them as possible and we are sure that if you’re here reading this page you’re doing everything you can to make sure your loved ones are safe as well as taking care of legally if their rights are being violated.

        Examples of Nursing Home Negligence

        In case you’re unsure what you’re looking for here are some examples of nursing home neglect and abuse that should give you an idea of what would warrant filing a case:

        A nursing home resident with Alzheimer’s was left unattended in a wheelchair by a staircase without their wheelchair being locked and during the time where the staff left them without any assistance, they tried to get out of their wheelchair but ended up tumbling down the stairs.

        A resident who is recently out of surgery had been left to sit in their feces and urine in their bed for days without having their sheets changed which led to an infection.

        The residents in the nursing home were being under fed and not given the proper nutrition that they needed. The malnutrition left the patients under weight and during a pandemic left them with a lowered immune system because they weren’t getting the nutrition they needed.

        If you are still unsure of whether or not your loved one’s case would be enough to file a lawsuit against the nursing home, we urge you to reach out to our Southwest Florida nursing home abuse lawyers today for a free consultation.

        Your Case Value

        There are often money damages involved with nursing home abuse cases that you should be able to receive compensation. Your compensation award for this case is meant to cover all of your financial loss related to the incident that was a result of the abuse or negligence. It can include anything from the medical treatment or medication needed for your loved one to any surgical bills as well as physical therapy costs.

        You might be able to receive rehabilitation fees if that is appropriate for your case which our Southwest Florida nursing home abuse lawyers will help you determine. This is not only limited to physical therapy but also psychological if your loved one had to go through mental and emotional abuse at the hands of the nursing home. All of these damages are included in the category of economic damages in which those you would’ve had to pay out of pocket for.

        Something that we will also fight to receive for you or your non-economic damages for your loved one which is meant to compensate for all of the ways that the incident have negatively impacted their life. If they suffered a lot of pain and suffering or mental and emotional anguish, they deserve the compensation for all of that abuse.

We will fight to get you every penny of that.
