Standing Up for Elders Who Have Suffered Serious Injuries From Falls
People are in nursing homes because they are not able to care for themselves. Your mom or dad, your grandmother or grandfather — he or she might need help when transferring to and from bed, a wheelchair, or the toilet. He or she may need assistance when walking or be unable to walk at all.
In these situations, your loved one needs to be monitored closely. Falls in nursing homes happen far too often, and they can result in serious injuries. If your loved one was injured in a fall at a nursing home, call us to talk. You can arrange your no-cost, no-obligation consultation by calling.
Elderly People Can Be Seriously Injured in Falls
Elderly people have brittle bones, decreased muscle mass, and slow reaction times. Falls affect elderly people more severely than they do young, healthy people. A fall in a nursing home hallway or a slip in the shower can result in:
Neck and back injuries
Many nursing homes are grossly understaffed. While the workers may mean well and truly want to do their best, they cannot be in all places at all times. Understaffing and sometimes poorly trained nursing home workers contribute to a large percentage of falls in nursing homes as well as other types of negligence.
Our lawyers are here to help your family address and resolve this matter. By seeking compensation, we can send a message to nursing home facilities — a message that says they must examine staffing issues, training and overall practices to ensure that more families do not suffer in the way that yours has.
