Amherst Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Nursing homes in Amherst are meant to give their residents a comfortable, dignified, and safe place to live. They are also meant to give residents’ family members peace of mind that the needs of their loved ones will be attended to, and that their physical well-being will be protected by the facility’s qualified, attentive staff. When this trust is betrayed by negligent nursing home staff members, the consequences can be devastating.

The people who work in nursing homes have a duty of care to their residents. However, by engaging in wrongful conduct or behaviours, the facility’s administrators, orderlies, nurses, security personnel, custodial workers, and other members of the staff could endanger the physical safety of the elderly people who reside in the home. If a nursing home staff member fails to fulfil their duty of care and a resident sustains injuries as a result, the at-fault party may be considered negligent.

Most injuries in nursing homes are the products of slip and fall accidents. When staff members fail to uphold their duties of care, slip and fall accidents are more likely to occur. Common examples of negligent behaviour that often leads to accidental physical injuries in nursing homes include:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Failure to provide mobility assistance
  • Prescription medication causing drowsiness
  • Hazardous maintenance issues
  • Unlocked doors to restricted areas
  • And more

Slip and fall accidents resulting from nursing home negligence can have serious ramifications for injured accident victims. Due to their advanced age and declining medical conditions, slips and falls in nursing homes can cause elderly residents to sustain serious, even life-threatening injuries. These injures often include:

  • Broken hips
  • Fractured bones
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Concussions
  • Traumatic brain injuries
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Paralysis
  • Sprains and strains
  • Musculoskeletal injuries
  • And more

Many seniors who reside in nursing homes have limited incomes. However, the process of recovering from serious injuries can be quite expensive. Injured nursing home accident survivors and their families may be required to go to great expense to access necessary medical treatments, surgeries, equipment, lifestyle adjustments, and more.

At Preszler Injury Lawyers, we believe that injured nursing home residents should not be forced into financial precariousness because of someone else’s failure to complete the duties of their job in a safe and cautious manner. If you or a relative were injured in a long-term care facility, you may be entitled to financial compensation.
