Standing Up For Elderly Victims Of Falls
An elderly patient who has demonstrated a pattern of repeated falls should be monitored closely by nursing home staff. If caregivers ignore monitoring devices or call signals, patients may attempt to move themselves, which could result in serious injuries. Our attorneys will investigate whether caregivers followed protocols to ensure that patients prone to falling were properly cared for.
We help clients pursue compensation for all forms of neglect in nursing homes. We work diligently to demonstrate that improperly reported falls or inadequate care resulted in further harm. With extensive experience handling a wide variety of nursing home injuries, we seek to help families pursue justice on behalf of their loved ones.
We Hold Negligent Facilities Responsible For Fall Injuries And Nursing Home Neglect
As a concerned family member, you have the right to know when your loved one has suffered a serious fall. Nursing homes and assisted care facilities have policies in place to document nursing home falls and inform family members and other authorities of these events. When they do not, they can and should be held accountable for their negligence.
