Lexington Lawyers For Nursing Home Falls

FallsMany elderly nursing home residents are not as strong as they once were and may have trouble getting around. When they are left unattended or unsupported, falls can cause serious consequences, including broken and fractured bones, internal injuries and even death.

At the law office of Stephen M. O’Brien III, PLLC, a Lexington, Kentucky, personal injury law firm, we know that accidents happen – but we also know that many can be prevented by proper care by diligent staff members. Our experienced lawyers represent nursing home residents and their families after negligent care has led to serious injuries from nursing home falls.

Offering A Helping Hand After A Nursing Home Fall

Falls can be a result of a variety of factors, including:

  • Slippery floors
  • Poor lighting
  • Dangerous bed height
  • Weakness from lack of exercise
  • Side effects of sedatives or prescription drugs

While nursing staff can’t prevent every injury, they can take proactive steps to prevent falls from occurring. Residents should be monitored to assess their risk of falling and steps can be taken to make their room safer and to alert nursing staff when they are struggling. In many cases, prompt responses to call buttons can prevent patients from attempting to take matters into their hands and moving around alone.

Our dedicated team of lawyers works closely with clients who have been injured, helping to give them a voice and championing their fight for justice. We genuinely care about our clients and are committed to helping them secure the compensation they need and deserve after falls caused by negligent care.
