HOLLYWOOD, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The local legal community is abuzz with the possibility of wrongful death suits against FPL and those calling the shots within the company. In case you missed it, eight people died at a nursing home in Hollywood, Broward County, after they were stuck in sweltering heat with no air conditioning for days.
FPL was apparently nowhere to be found.
While the owner has reportedly had legal issues of his own, there is buzz that FPL made no effort to return power to a medical facility in the early hours of restoration. Whether that rises to wrongful death remains to be seen. At issue: can it be proven that FPL was unprepared, that too many workers were in Texas, and that the disaster response plan was inadequate.
