The Florida Supreme Court has recently struck down nursing home abuse case clauses that would put a cap on damages that abuse victims and their families can receive.

The two cases where the Florida Supreme Court recently decided against such a cap were Shotts v. OP Winter Haven and Gessa v. Manor Care of Florida. These decisions will make it easier for victims and their families to receive a just compensation for nursing home negligence, without a monetary cap which can protect negligent nursing homes.

Legal experts are hoping that these decisions in Florida will halt nursing homes in other states from trying to put a cap on damage charges.

In cases such as these, a nursing home abuse lawyer plays a crucial role in fighting for abuse victims. We encourage you to contact a nursing home abuse attorney if you or a loved one was abused or neglected in a nursing home.
