Greenville Nursing Home Fall Lawyer

Representing Victims of Patient Falls in Nursing Homes & Assisted Living Facilities

Fall accidents are incredibly common in the elderly, as their strength is not what it used to be and their body is generally quite weakened. However, one of the main reasons for putting our elderly loved ones in a nursing home is to ensure someone will watch them at all times, in order to prevent these fall accidents from occurring in the first place. Sadly, this isn’t always the case, and these occurrences happen more often than they should.

Can You Sue a Nursing Home for a Fall?

A fall accident can be quite dangerous for an elderly person, as it can result in a number of hazardous injuries, ranging from serious to fatal. Though accidents happen in even the very best nursing homes, negligence is often the cause behind these entirely preventable incidents. If an area is slippery, cluttered, or uneven, a senior citizen is far more likely to suffer a fall than if the conditions are 100% safe.

Nursing Home Fall Prevention:

Facilities can prevent this from happening by designing areas to be well-lit, installing proper handrails, and monitoring patients when they are transferring in and out of bed, wheelchairs, and the bathroom.

What Are Common Types of Nursing Home Fall Injuries?

The following are possible injuries following a fall accident:

  • Broken or fractured bones - An elderly person who suffers a fall may experience more severe injuries than a younger person because their bones are more brittle and susceptible to breakage under stress
  • Hip fractures - Hip fractures can be very severe in elderly patients, and also very dangerous
  • Traumatic brain injuries - Any fall where the patient hits their head has the potential to result in a brain injury; these types of injuries have very serious consequences and can at times even be fatal for elderly victims
  • Concussions - Although less serious than a TBI, a concussion can still have a powerful impact on a nursing home patient; it can leave them disoriented, confused, and frightened
  • Painful bruising - Although not lethal, severe bruising can lead to serious discomfort and complications for the nursing home patient, and should be taken seriously
  • Wrongful death - The most serious repercussion of a fall accident is death; whether this occurs immediately after the fall, or results at a later time as a result of complications from other injuries

No matter the injury, your loved one deserves to feel safe and cared for in the home you have entrusted them to. Even if the accident was a result of negligence and not intentional, you may still be eligible to pursue compensation to help care for your loved one's injuries.
