Florida nursing home abuse and medical malpractice attorney, James Ragano, represents the legal rights of clients who have been harmed due to negligent medical practices and works with them to carefully consider their alternatives in pursuing any harm that may have been done to a family member.

Medical Negligence & Malpractice Law

People like doctors. However, even good doctors make medical mistakes in both practice and judgment which can lead to tragic outcomes that harm their patients. It is often the case that well-meaning doctors are forced to cut corners or rush through procedures in order to satisfy corporate healthcare protocols or guidelines that put profits over people. This corporate rush to revenue often leaves innocent patients subject to many forms of medical negligence. Our firm takes a global view of medical malpractice cases that not only reviews a physician’s history of negligent behavior but also recognizes whether the medical facility or hospital where they practice has a pattern of poor corporate behavior. If you believe you have been harmed by a medical practitioner, don’t let a healthcare defense attorney use your affinity towards your physician as a tactic to deter you or a loved one from pursuing a lawsuit for medical malpractice. We invite you to contact or call us at 877-976-9412 to determine whether you have a legitimate legal claim for medical malpractice and whether the medical provider has a documented history of providing poor care to patients.

Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Legal Representation

Florida law guarantees nursing home residents the right to adequate and appropriate healthcare. Unfortunately, these rights are violated every day by nursing homes and corporate owners who often put profits over people. Inexperienced and poorly trained staff as well as poor safety procedures put residents, who may not be able to report the abuse, in an unsafe environment and subject to mistreatment. Nursing home abuse and neglect can come in many forms, resulting in falls, bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, and even death. In addition, many facilities simply choose to overmedicate their residents in order to control behavior, leading to disastrous outcomes. Nursing homes may also fail to manage pain appropriately, leaving residents to suffer in silence. Our firm takes a personal and aggressive approach to address these abuses. Feel free to contact us or call 877-976-9412 with any questions so we can provide an accurate opinion of your loved one’s case and a strategy to combat the neglect.

Assisted Living Facility Negligence & Attorney Advocacy

Assisted Living Facilities in the State of Florida are required to provide their residents access to adequate and appropriate health care. However, far too often these facilities simply accept residents and their payment sources, while doing little to care for them. One of the most common concerns with assisted living care is over-medicating residents who have become too challenging for the assisted living caregivers. Over-medication of residents has been shown to lead to falls, skin breakdown, dehydration, malnutrition and sometimes even death. Holding assisted living facilities accountable for their actions can be difficult because they are typically not inspected by the government more than once every two years and charting requirements are lax. Having dealt with dozens of similar cases, we are adept at recognizing the patterns of abuse that are present in an assisted living facility. If a loved one needs an advocate we invite you to contact or call our firm at 877-976-9412 so that we may take on the challenge of addressing the abuse suffered.
