How Will An Attorney Help?
Nursing home fall injuries that occur due to abuse or neglect can be difficult to prove. These cases require an attorney with experience fighting against elder abuse. In many cases, nursing home employees will actively try to hide evidence of what happened. Your nursing home fall injury lawyer will know how to uncover evidence of abuse and will:
Obtain your loved one’s medical records
Let an expert medical witness review the case and testify on your loved one’s behalf
Negotiate with all parties involved to secure a fair settlement
Fall Injuries In Seniors Can Be Devastating
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) say that over 32% of all older adults fall each year, making those in nursing homes particularly vulnerable to falls. Falls are much more serious for the elderly and they often cause severe and debilitating injuries. When a senior falls, they are much more likely to sustain broken bones and require extended hospital stays and rehabilitation.
Even though older citizens are more prone to falls, there are times when nursing home employee actions lead directly to fall injuries. Nursing homes can be held liable for these incidents when they:
Do not properly monitor at-risk residents.
Fail to remove obstacles, such as rugs and furniture, that make it harder for the elderly to maneuver around.
Fail to ensure there is proper lighting in walking areas.
Do not install or maintain safety devices such as handrails.
