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.

In October of 2014 I was riding my motorcycle when a truck pulled out in front of me. After months of dealing with a lackluster attorney I was referred to Gerald (Gerry) Schackow at Schackow & Mercadante. I felt welcomed and was treated very well throughout the entire process. Gerry was able to close my settlement for a larger sum than I had expected and was able to do so in less than 5 weeks from the day I first contacted him. Dealing with insurance after an accident is not easy but the folks at Schackow & Mercadante will treat you well and explain your options in a clear and concise manner. Very appreciative of the professionalism and courtesy of this office and would recommend that anyone use their services.
