Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys In Gainesville


Do you know the telltale signs of nursing home abuse?

If not, there are specific things to look for when visiting loved ones confined to a nursing home. Inadequate staffing, marks or bruises, bed sores, belittling comments and tense relationships are common signs that a problem could exist. There is simply no justification or excuse that's acceptable if you or a family member were victimized by nursing home neglect or abuse. Like many Central Florida families, you may be trusting a nursing home and assisted living facility to provide your older loved ones with the professional care and attention they need. These elderly family members should receive the same quality of care as any other patient. But sadly, this is not always the case. If you or a loved one have experienced nursing home abuse or accidental death, contact a lawyer immediately to learn more about protecting your rights.

At Schackow & Mercadante, our personal injury attorneys have helped families with cases such as:

  • Physical Abuse or Injury
  • Verbal or Non-Verbal Emotional Abuse
  • Sexual Contact and Abuse
  • Exploitation or Theft of Property
  • Failure to Monitor or Provide

And remember, your family does not have to confront nursing home or assisted living administrators alone. If you suspect that nursing home abuse is happening to someone you love, there is something you can do about it.

My girlfriend and I were in a car accident in South Florida back on Mother?s Day - it was not a good experience. We did not know where to start since it happened in SWFL and we both live here in Gainesville. I did some research online & this firm was the one that stuck out the most to me. This was the only call I made in my search to a firm representing us. I could not be any happier with my decision. Mr. Mercadante, Mrs. Payne & the whole staff have been an awesome help! They are so great, fast, knowledgeable, friendly, caring, passionate and professional. They walked us through every step, they referred me to a number of people around town to help with the needs of my girlfriend and I. That was the biggest help because we had no clue about anything here in Gainesville since we were new here. This may be a small firm but they have a huge impact on the community they serve! That truly speaks volumes! Schackow & Mercadante truly cares about the community and their clients! When you choose this firm to help with any of your needs, you will not be just another client or number like other firms, you?ll become a part of their family!! I am glad I chose Schackow & Mercadante!
