Legal Answers
3 Questions Answered

Q. Can a nursing home tell family that they cant come see their family
A: A nursing home can prevent a resident from seeing certain family members if they are a threat to the resident, but that rarely happens. If your family is being prevented from seeing your loved one, you should report that to your local state agency that deals with nursing home abuse. The NCEA has a great elder abuse agency locator resource -- here is the link: http://www.ncea.aoa.gov/Stop_Abuse/Get_Help/State/index.aspx Good luck, Michael
Q. what is the average attorney fee on a medical malpractice case (nursing home abuse)?
A: It depends on the state. In Florida, our fees are typically 33 1/3 - 40% of the gross recovery.
Q. should I contact the company's owner if the front line management won't address abuse in a nursing home
A: Yes, you can try speaking with the owner of the nursing home to stop the elder neglect. Another option is to report the nursing home abuse to your state agency dealing with elder abuse. Please Take Notice: I am not your lawyer unless we enter into an engagement agreement in writing. This is only general information. It is NOT legal advice, and it may not work for your specific situation. It is impossible to evaluate a legal problem without a comprehensive consultation and review of all the relevant facts and documents. I strongly encourage you to consult with a local lawyer to get legal advice and help with your specific situation at your earliest convenience.
