It’s never easy when someone you love dies, but when someone dies at a nursing home or assisted living facility due to abuse or neglect, it’s beyond devastating. Whether your loved one died from an injury sustained in a preventable accident at a nursing home, such as a fall, or they passed away from a serious medical condition, like sepsis or bedsores, it’s important to remember that you and your family have rights. You may be able to sue the nursing home or assisted living facility for damages and hold them accountable for their actions.
During these difficult times, it’s critical that you have someone in your corner to look out for your family’s best interests. An experienced attorney can support you throughout the entire legal process and be there for you, every step of the way.
Attorney Armando Edmiston, founder of Armando Personal Injury Law in Tampa, takes pride in treating his clients like members of the family. He works hard to build strong cases and can fight to get you the financial compensation you rightfully deserve.
Can you sue a nursing home for wrongful death?
If your spouse or parent died at a nursing home or assisted living facility due to abuse or neglect, you may be able to sue the facility to recover compensation for damages. In Florida, surviving spouses and children of the victim can file a nursing home wrongful death lawsuit. Although there is no average nursing home wrongful death settlement, some costs that should be included are:
- Funeral costs and burial expenses
- The deceased’s medical expenses
- The deceased’s pain and suffering
- Punitive damages (intended to punish the facility for egregious acts of abuse or neglect)
Who can file a nursing home wrongful death lawsuit?
In Florida, only certain family members of the deceased are allowed to file a wrongful death lawsuit. In nursing home cases, only the surviving spouse or children of the victim can file the claim. Siblings, grandchildren, non-married partners, and other family members are not eligible. The victim’s estate may also be able to file a lawsuit for certain damages such as funeral and burial expenses.
