Falls And Fractures May Be Due To Nursing Home Malpractice And Neglect
It is easy for young or healthy people to take a simple fall for granted and simply “walk it off.” For the elderly and the disabled, that is not the case as a fall can result in fractures or other catastrophic injuries such as a broken hip. When proper care and attention is exercised, a fall of this nature should not occur in a nursing home or assisted living center.
At Slater & Norris, P.L.C., in Des Moines, Iowa, we take abuse and neglect in nursing homes that can cause falls and injuries seriously, and fight aggressively to pursue compensation for residents who are injured in these accidents. We have obtained significant settlements and verdicts in our more than 55 years of experience for our clients throughout central Iowa.
These Injuries Are Preventable
When proper procedures are followed by nursing staff who pays proper attention to their residents, falls and resulting bruises and fractures are almost always preventable. We pursue full compensation in claims involving injuries such as:
- Severe bruising
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Wrongful death
We are not afraid to aggressively advocate for our clients and will work hard to get you the full compensation you deserve from your fall injury. Our attorneys pay close attention to all the details of each of our cases and are committed to your needs.
