Inland from Fort Lauderdale, Weston hovers on the edge of the Everglades Wildlife Management Area. The western Broward County city of more than 65,000 is a master-planned community in which development has been closely managed. A Money Magazine top-100 Best Place to Live in America, Weston also ranked on that publication’s list of “Biggest Earners.” Businessweek has called the city one of the nation’s “best affordable suburbs.”
Like other South Florida communities, Weston prides itself on providing its citizens a great lifestyle, and its focus has been on effective planning to create that. At Freeman Injury Law, our Weston nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers know that sound planning also has to go into the decision about which nursing facility might be right for a loved one.
The transition to nursing home living often is challenging, and our elder abuse attorneys know that it’s even more so when the care provided by a nursing home is substandard. Our experienced nursing home neglect lawyers know that more than 90% of the nation’s nursing homes are cited for problems each year. Florida’s 671 facilities are no exception.
Weston nursing home neglect and elder abuse attorneys at our firm know the complexities of nursing home cases. We know the law and how to apply it when someone you love has suffered abuse and help is needed. Our firm believes that every Weston citizen, and especially those who are unable to care for themselves, deserve the best possible legal representation when indifferent, inattentive, or untrained caregivers fail to uphold the duty of care promised by a skilled nursing facility.
Our attorneys have seen the heartbreak families experience when they learn that a loved one has been injured in a fall, has developed bedsores, has succumbed to the blood poisoning and organ failure of sepsis, or has simply starved to death because caregivers in nursing homes haven’t done their jobs. We take decisive action for those families, working diligently to recover compensation for their lost loved ones.
At Freeman Injury Law, our Weston elder abuse and nursing home neglect lawyers will investigate claims of abuse or neglect. We know how to collect evidence and build a strong case designed to recover damages for your loved one’s suffering.

We charge no fees unless we recover damages for you or your loved one. Ask for a free consultation to discuss your concerns about abuse in or out of a nursing home. When it’s time to end the suffering, call the accomplished attorneys that Weston residents rely on.
