Holding Nursing Homes Accountable After A Fall

Younger and middle-aged people don't worry too much about falling down. As we age, however, falls are a far more common, and far more serious issue. Falls are a particularly severe problem for elderly who live in nursing homes. Falls can fracture or shatter hips, legs, arms and other bones. Falls can cause concussions or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs). In short, a fall can take a precarious situation and make it much worse.

While a fall can be an accident, it may still be preventable. Nursing home staff members need to provide adequate supervision and care. Staff members need to assess and evaluate which residents are at a greater risk for falls. Staff must implement appropriate plans to minimize these risks.

Taking Action After A Fall In A Nursing Home

If someone you love lives in a nursing home and was seriously injured in a fall, you probably have many questions. If you have reason to believe this fall was the result of neglect or abuse, it is important to retain the services of an experienced lawyer.
