Antigonish Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

When elderly residents of local nursing homes sustain accidental injuries inside the very facility designed to keep them safe from harm, they often endure prolonged physical challenges and incur monetary losses. If their injurious accidents were the result of negligence on the part of the nursing home’s staff, injured residents may be entitled to financial compensation for damages they have incurred because of their injuries.

Most nursing home residents live on strictly fixed income with few monetary resources to rely on in the event of a sudden medical emergency. As such, when the wrongful conduct of nursing home staff members causes an injurious accident within the facility, the injured resident’s family members often find themselves assuming financial responsibility for their newly acquired expenses.

By working with our nursing home negligence lawyers serving Antigonish, injured nursing home residents and their families may be able to pursue a civil claim to recover the financial compensation they deserve. Our Antigonish nursing home negligence lawyers appreciate what a deep betrayal of trust wrongful treatment in a long-term care facility is, and fight on behalf of injured, vulnerable community members.

When senior citizens and their family members make the difficult decision to relocate to a nursing home, they do so because they trust the facility’s nurses, orderlies, administrator, custodians, security personnel, and other staff members will deliver an exemplary level of service. Nursing home employees owe a duty of care to the people who reside within the facility. If they provide substandard service or engage in wrongful conduct and a resident sustains injuries as a result, the staff may be considered negligent.

Common examples of nursing home negligence that could cause an elderly resident to sustain injuries in an accident include:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Failure to provide mobility assistance
  • Hazardous maintenance issues
  • Uncleared ice or snow in outdoor areas
  • Unlocked doors to restricted areas
  • Improperly prescribed medications
  • And more

Depending on a number of factors, including the accident victim’s age and medical condition, the injuries they sustain in a nursing home accident can range in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Injuries commonly sustained in nursing home accidents 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

Due to their age and possible physical fragility, injuries sustained by seniors in traumatic accidents can have prolonged, painful effects that could plague injured accident survivors for the rest of their lives. Injuries sustained in nursing home accidents can even accelerate an accident victim’s premature death.
