What type of damages can be recovered in nursing home or ALF abuse case?
A: Obviously, economic damages can be recovered. This would include things such as medical expenses incurred by your loved one due to the abuse, psychological or psychiatric treatment, if applicable, as well as costs for future medical and/or psychiatric or psychological care and treatment necessitated by the abuse. Your loved one is also entitled to human losses such as pain and suffering, impairment, disfigurement, disability, mental anguish and loss of capacity for the enjoyment of life. Other damages may also be recoverable and you should speak to an experienced Sarasota nursing home abuse or Sarasota ALF abuse attorney for more information.
