Florida’s senior living facilities recorded the second highest average claims losses among the 50 states in 2022, amounting to $1,250 per occupied residential unit, according to a new study from the insurance services company WTW.

The analysis, which paints a picture of the legal environment senior care facilities deal with among the states, shows a general trend of the increased liability costs – due to falls, issues with medicines and other kinds of accidents – facing the long-term care centers.

The study also showed a wide variation of so-called loss costs – average legal claims payouts on a per-residential unit basis – among the states, from $180 in Texas to $1,675 in Kentucky in 2022.
