Nursing Home Abuse – As our population’s age increases, so unfortunately is nursing home abuse, neglect, inadequate and substandard care. Our firm handles cases involving various types of ulcers or open wounds (including pressure sores, bed sores, and ulcers), which result from poor care. We also handle claims resulting from medication errors, sub-standard care, falls which occur in the facility, and claims resulting from dehydration, malnourishment, weight loss or other inadequate nutrition issues.
Accidental Drowning – According to the Florida Department of Health, Florida had the 3rd highest overall drowning death rate in the United States in the years 1999 to 2003. Drowning is the leading cause of death of toddlers between the ages of 1-4. Our firm handles drowning cases involving pools, canals, lakes, rivers and the ocean.

Automated External Defibrillators (AED)- According to the American Heart Association about 265,000 people a year die from Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA) outside a hospital, almost a quarter of them in public places (gyms, stadiums, casinos, airplanes, theme parks, etc.). The low survival rate of 5 percent is due primarily to response time. Survival rates from SCA drop 7-10 percent with each minute that elapses. The only effective treatment is early defibrillation – restoring the heart’s natural rhythm by applying electric shock.
