Tampa Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer & Elder Abuse Attorney 813-222-8210
Tampa Bay Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Attorneys
Florida Nursing Home Law
State and federal laws in Florida protect the elderly from health hazards and deficiencies in patient care. The reason for state and federal protection of the elderly is a simple truth: all too often nursing homes, long-term caregivers and assisted living facilities in Florida have placed profits before patients.

Slip and Fall Injury Attorney
Tampa Slip and Fall Attorneys at the Galewski Law Group have been involved in over 1,000 cases this last decade, but we take a personal approach to each case. When we work to help someone or a family rebuild after a Slip and Fall accident, we put our heart into making sure that your interest, your family, and your future are protected. We start with a discussion of your immediate needs, short and long term goals, which may include: accident recreation, investigation, temporary loans or income replacement, immediate medical attention, long term care, or even death benefits. We move from there to a series of avenues to reach your goals, including: assisting with all avenues of insurance claims, reviewing all potential claims against third parties such as workers compensation, social security and disability benefits, claims for negligence, wrongful death, car, home or commercial liability insurance and finally litigation.
Recovery from a Slip and fall accident follows a similar line as other negligence cases. You are not entitles to a recovery simply because you were slipped, fell or were injured. The place where you were hurt must have breached some duty to keep you safe. They may not have informed you that the floor was wet, the store could have had loose flooring or carpet, or simply the area was just designed safely. In many cases you may think you just tripped but you may actually be able to recover. It is best to speak with one of our attorneys and have us investigate the area. In some situations there may be a patter of injuries without a visible cause, but through investigation and research we may be able to better understand your accident case, and help you recover,
To help obtain your goals, rebuild your life and move your recovery, we reach beyond a typical law firm and have relationships with industry leaders, medical providers, mental and health counselors and simply good heart-ed people that are there for you and your family.
At the end of the day, your home is more than your castle, your family needs to focus on recovery, and not on legal details. Since your wrongful death and serious injury case is more than personal for us, we can handle the details while you move your recovery along.
There is no substitution for competent legal counsel. The decisions that you make now can have a long lasting impact on you and your family. I often say that everyone gets their day in court. There is rarely a second chance to come back and change things with the judge or in a settlement agreement. The same is true in cases where you cannot always anticipate future needs.
This means that you should do things correct the first time. Just because a friend went through a similar situation, does not mean that they have had the same case or that they know your situation. There is just no substitute for hiring the right law firm the first time. Call the Galewski Law Group at 855-Stan-the-Man or 813-222-8210 now and get a free consultation. Remember,in most cases, we do not get paid unless we recover for you.
