Our Indian River County Nursing Home Abuse & Negligence Lawyers Enforce the Nursing Home Bill of Rights

- Unexplained bruises, cuts, burns, sprains, or fractures in various stages of healing
- Bedsores or frozen joints
- Unexplained venereal disease or genital infections; vaginal or anal bleeding; torn, stained, or bloody underclothing
