Chicago Nursing Home Fall Injuries Lawyers
Lawyers Representing Nursing Home Fall and Broken Bone Victims
Elderly nursing home residents are at a much greater risk of falls due to problems that develop with balance, leg strength and other issues that develop as people get older. When elderly people fall down, it is a much more serious situation than with younger people. Where a younger person might suffer a bruise, an elderly person could easily suffer a broken hip, knee or shoulder in even a seemingly harmless fall.
Elderly residents of nursing homes rely on the staff members to provide necessary care and to ensure their safety. Staff members carry the responsibility to take the necessary steps to keep residents safe from falls via any means necessary. When they fail to do so, it can have a devastating impact on the residents.
