Legal Options After A Nursing Home Fall

For many elderly people who require nursing home care, falling or being dropped by personnel is a catastrophic event. A broken hip or other fractures may occur in situations when a younger, stronger person might suffer only bruising. Unfortunately, inadequate supervision and overall neglect in Ohio care facilities make severe nursing home injuries more common than we would like to believe.

At The Skolnick Weiser Law Firm, LLC, we believe in holding nursing homes and their administrators financially accountable for neglect and abuse. Our efforts have led to high-value settlements and verdicts in such cases, and we are here to help you in any way we can.

Did Neglect Cause A Nursing Home Injury Or Fatality?

Our dedicated, trial-proven lawyers have in-depth knowledge of the laws and standards that apply to nursing home care. We also have access to qualified experts nationwide who are prepared to aid in our investigation and analysis of your potential case. Questions that must be asked and answered may include:

  • What factors led to a nursing home fall or other accident resulting in a serious nursing home injury?
  • Was the staffing ratio adequate, and was walking assistance available when the patient needed it?
  • Did the injured resident have Alzheimer’s disease or other special needs that required supervision to prevent wandering into potentially unsafe areas?
  • Once an injury occurred, was timely and effective medical care provided?

Our attorneys believe passionately that the elderly in our society deserve proper care, consideration and treatment with dignity. We also know that, too often, substandard conditions in nursing homes go unreported and are hidden from visitors. Your decision to come to us may ultimately protect other families from the pain and grief you are enduring.
