Nursing Home Fractures and Falls
One of the reasons quality nursing home care is so important is that many residents are in a weak physical state. As we age our bones naturally weaken and become more vulnerable to fractures from falls and other traumas. We’ve been serving the residents of the Scottsdale area for 25 years as lawyers specializing in nursing home abuse, and in those more than two decades we’ve seen too many victims come in with broken bones.
This is unacceptable. If your elderly loved one has suffered a broken bone as a result of a nursing home staff member’s negligence or misconduct, our nursing home abuse lawyers will fight for you.
These fractures can have a few different causes. Usually, they’re the result of negligence on the part of a nursing home staff. When staff members do not properly supervise their charges or fail to adequately safeguard residents’ rooms, the risk of a fall is magnified.
Nursing home staff members have an obligation to protect their residents. Negligence is abuse, and our lawyers will help you pursue justice and compensation.
In more extreme cases, fractures are caused as a result of direct physical abuse by nursing home staff. Residents do not have to tolerate this abuse, and you should speak with our lawyers if your loved one has suffered abuse at the hands of nursing home staff.
