The lawyers at the Clinesmith Law Firm are dedicated to seeking justice for the elderly who may be suffering abuse or negligence while in a nursing home facility.
There are no excuses that should be allowed when an elderly patient receives a broken bone while in the care of a nursing home. Our broken bone lawyers take these cases very seriously and work with a team of medical experts, investigators, paralegals, and nurses to fight nursing home abuse.
There are a variety of types of broken bones that can occur while in the care of a nursing home, including:
Elderly patients are disposed to fall more, which means they are more likely to suffer a broken bone. No matter the type of broken bone you or your loved one may be dealing with, most should have been able to be prevented. These injuries often occur because of an untrained or inexperienced staff member prone to negligence or abuse.
Some of the most common types of broken bones suffered by the elderly include:
When the elderly break a bone or fracture one or many, it can impair their mobility sometimes to the point of becoming completely immobile. When this happens, bedsores and ulcers can form, and if a cast is required on the injured bone, hygiene problems may occur if not properly cared for.
When the injury can be proven that it occurred in the nursing home because of negligence or abuse, legal recourse against the home can proceed. By speaking out not, you may be able to prevent other elderly patients from being injured or abused. If you are unsure if the nursing home your loved one resides in is giving proper care, contact the Clinesmith Law Firm and consider moving your loved one to a safer facility.
