The Spanish word Miramar translates to “look at the sea,” and was the name of an exclusive neighborhood in pre-Castro Havana, Cuba. Taking its name from that district, the Broward County city of Miramar is strategically located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami, giving it easy access to air, sea and land transport. Named one of Money Magazine’s top 100 America’s Best Places to Live in recent years, Miramar has adopted the motto “Beauty and Progress.”

Like other Broward County communities, Miramar prides itself on its appeal to families and on the quality of life it offers. At Freeman Injury Law, our Miramar elder abuse lawyers are proud to be a leading choice of local citizens who need reliable legal advice and guidance. Our firm is committed to providing the highest quality in legal services and to acting as strong advocates for those who need our help.

Our nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys know that even the most desirable communities can find that their elderly citizens and nursing home residents lack the level of care and attention they deserve. Across the nation, large percentages of nursing homes – more than 9 out of 10 – are cited for deficiencies in the services they provide. That means that elderly and ill residents are at risk for the results of neglect and poor care, such as:

  • Increased risk of falling
  • Likelihood that medication regimens won’t be followed
  • Worsening of physical symptoms
  • Depression
  • Development of bedsores that can progress to sepsis
  • Infections

At Freeman Injury Law, our experienced Miramar nursing home abuse lawyers have seen that nursing homes and other health care facilities try to operate with too few staff members to serve residents, or with staff who lack the training they need to provide high-quality care. Our elder abuse attorneys will fight for your rights or those of a loved one who suffers abuse or neglect in or out of a nursing home. We are committed to ensuring that caregivers and institutions that abuse or neglect ill and elderly individuals are held responsible for the harm they do. It is our hope that bringing such parties to justice will help to make conditions better for all residents of nursing facilities.

If you suspect a loved one is the victim of neglect or abuse, call the Miramar nursing home abuse lawyers at our firm. We offer you a free consultation to discuss your case and to review your rights. Abuse can be challenging to identify and prove, but our elder abuse lawyers know how to examine evidence and assess questionable situations. Don’t delay if you feel abuse might be going on. Call our offices and ask for our Miramar nursing home neglect attorneys.
