Seeking Justice & Protecting The Vulnerable

Slip & Falls

Slip and falls are one of the most common types of accidents that occur in nursing homes. Elderly residents of nursing homes are particularly vulnerable to falls due to their reduced mobility and balance, which can be further compromised by medical conditions or medication side effects. Slip and falls can cause serious injuries such as fractures, head injuries, and soft tissue damage, which can lead to long-term health complications and even death. Nursing homes have a responsibility to provide a safe environment for their residents, and if they fail to do so, they can be held liable for damages caused by slip and falls. 

A nursing home abuse attorney can help victims of slip and falls in nursing homes by holding the facility accountable for their negligence and seeking compensation for the victim's medical expenses, pain and suffering, and lost wages. This may involve reviewing medical records, interviewing witnesses, and consulting with experts in fields such as nursing and geriatric medicine. By working with a nursing home abuse attorney, victims of slip and falls in nursing homes can seek justice and hold negligent facilities accountable for their actions.

Elopement, or the unauthorized departure of a resident from a nursing home, is a serious issue that can put the health and safety of vulnerable seniors at risk. It is not uncommon for nursing home residents to elope due to inadequate supervision, faulty security systems, or understaffing. Elopement can lead to injury, illness, or even death, especially for those who are cognitively impaired or have physical disabilities. Families who entrust their loved ones to nursing homes expect that they will be kept safe and secure, and it can be devastating to learn that a resident has eloped due to negligence or abuse on the part of the nursing home staff.

When a nursing home resident elopes, it is important for families to seek legal assistance to hold the nursing home accountable for their actions. A nursing home abuse attorney can help families understand their legal rights and options, and can assist them in filing a lawsuit against the nursing home for damages. Additionally, an attorney can work to ensure that the nursing home takes appropriate steps to prevent future elopements and improve the safety and security of its residents.

Medication Errors

Medication errors in nursing homes can have serious consequences for residents who are elderly, have a weakened immune system, and are more vulnerable to the effects of medication. According to recent studies, medication errors are responsible for over 7,000 deaths each year in nursing homes across the United States. Common medication errors includes administering the wrong medication, wrong dosage, or failing to administer medication at all. These errors can result from understaffing, poor training, or inadequate supervision of staff. 

A nursing home abuse attorney can provide legal assistance to nursing home residents and their families who have suffered harm due to medication errors. They can help residents and their families understand their legal rights, and pursue claims for damages against negligent nursing homes. An attorney can investigate the cause of the medication error and gather evidence proving negligence on the part of the nursing home.

Bed sores, also known as pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers, are a common problem faced by elderly residents in nursing homes who are immobile or bedridden. These painful and often debilitating sores can occur due to prolonged pressure on certain areas of the body, leading to tissue damage and infection. Unfortunately, bed sores are also a sign of neglect and inadequate care, as they can be prevented with proper monitoring, repositioning, and skin care. This is where a nursing home abuse attorney can help.

A nursing home abuse attorney can help families of elderly residents who have suffered from bed sores in nursing homes hold the facility accountable for their neglect. With the help of a nursing home abuse attorney, families can seek compensation for the damages incurred, including medical expenses, pain and suffering, and emotional distress. Additionally, holding the nursing home accountable can help prevent similar incidents from happening to other residents in the future.
