What Are Common Injuries Sustained in Nursing Home Slip and Fall Accidents?

As slip and fall accident attorneys know all too well, even a minor fall can be devastating to an older person. Broken bones, hip fractures, bruises, cuts, sprains and head injuries are all possible outcomes. After an elderly person falls, he or she may also become fearful of falling again. This can seriously reduce someone's overall quality of life as the person may become reluctant to leave his or her room and interact socially with the other residents sharing the facility.

Nursing Home Negligence Falls

Staff negligence and a lack of supervision directly lead to many falls in nursing homes. When a resident has a high risk of falling, nursing home staff must develop and implement a care plan to minimize that risk. You may be able to recover damages on behalf of your loved one if a plan was not in place.
