Q: How is a Florida nursing home abuse claim paid? Does the facility or insurance company pay it?

A: If the nursing home facility has insurance, the insurer would be the one to pay the claim. Whenever a Florida nursing home abuse or neglect claim is made, the insurance company is notified immediately. Believe it or not, not all facilities carry liability insurance, which is a tremendous risk for them. Just one nursing home abuse claim could substantially impact the home. When a claim is made against on uninsured nursing home, the facility would have to pay damages itself or the claim may end up being uncollectible.
