Failure to Secure

Failure to Secure Residents in Nursing Homes

North Carolina Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys

The decision to bring an elderly loved one to a nursing home is often based on concerns that the person is going to get hurt accidentally if left in his or her own home. The expectation is that nursing home staff will make certain that the elderly person is safe and secure at all times, including when in the bathroom, when in the shower and when in bed. If that expectation is not met, the result can be a serious accident leading to a fall injury or another type of injury. In some cases, these accidents can be fatal.

If you believe that an elderly loved one has been in an accident because of the nursing home staff's failure to secure him or her, the law office of R. Steve Bowden & Associates can help. We have decades of experience in these matters. Contact our North Carolina nursing home abuse and neglect lawyers for a free initial consultation.

Holding Nursing Homes Accountable

Nursing homes command high fees to take care of elderly people. There is absolutely no excuse for them to fail in providing the services promised such as failing to put up guardrails on a resident's bed or not monitoring a resident in the shower or in the bathroom. That will not stop nursing homes and their insurance companies from trying to avoid responsibility and trying to minimize the amount of compensation they provide. They want to protect their reputation, and they want to protect their bottom line.

The insurance company is not on your side. The nursing home's insurance company is not going to look after your best interests. They are going to look after the nursing home's best interests. It is our job to protect you and your loved one.
