For an elderly person, injuries that a younger person might quickly recover from can be catastrophic. This includes all of the types of injuries that could be suffered in a fall such as:
- Head injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Broken hips
- Broken legs
- Broken arms
If you believe that an elderly loved one suffered a fall injury because of nursing home negligence, you need to get in touch with a trusted personal injury attorney as soon as possible. You need to find out what your rights are. You need to make certain your rights are protected.

Causes Of Falls in Nursing Homes
While slip-and-fall accidents can occur at any time in a nursing home or elsewhere, there are situations in which the accident simply should not have happened. These tend to be cases in which there has been a failure to secure an elderly person. Perhaps the staff failed to put the guardrails up on the person’s bed, leading to the person falling out of bed. Perhaps the staff failed to properly monitor the elderly nursing home resident in the shower or in the bathroom.
Pursuing Liability And Compensation
Our lawyers certainly recognize that compensation cannot repair the harm that has been caused in the fall. At the very least, compensation can help in covering medical bills, continuing medical treatment and other accumulating costs. The action we take may also help to prevent similar accidents from happening to others in the future.
