Bathurst Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


When accidents in nursing homes cause elderly residents to sustain injuries, it can be difficult to determine liability. Unfortunately, many injurious nursing home accidents are the result of the staff’s wrongful conduct and their failure to uphold the duty of care they owe to the people they have been hired to protect and serve.

If a nursing home’s administrators, nurses, orderlies, caretakers, security personnel, or other staff members neglect the duty of care they owe their elderly residents, serious accidents can occur. These accidents often significantly impact a victim’s overall quality of life, causing physical pain and discomfort, emotional distress, and financial insecurity.

Many seniors who reside in long-term care facilities have limited incomes. Depending on the severity of the injuries they sustain in an accident caused by negligence in their nursing home, they may be forced to go to great expense to pay for the treatments, surgeries, or lifestyle adjustments required to adequately cope with their newly acquired medical conditions. Both the injured nursing home resident and their families may find themselves in financially precarious situations in order to afford the necessary costs of medical care.

An accident that may have no visible effects on a younger victim could seriously impair or disable a senior. In fact, slip and fall accidents are the highest cause of injuries requiring hospitalization for senior citizens across the country. Accidents caused by the negligence of nursing home staff members often result in serious injuries that can have prolonged effects on an accident victim for the rest of their lives. These injuries 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

Negligence in nursing homes is a deep betrayal of trust. Nursing home staff have a responsibility to provide their residents with a dignified, comfortable, and safe living environment. Failure to ensure their safety can have profound impacts on injured accident victims and their families for years to come. The staff at long-term care facilities may be considered negligent if– through a number of different actions, inactions, errors, omissions, or other forms of wrongful conduct– they neglect to uphold the duty of care they owe their residents. Common examples of nursing home negligence that often leads to injury-causing accidents 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

If the negligence of staff members at a long-term care facility caused you or a loved one to sustain injuries, nursing home negligence lawyers serving Bathurst may be able to help you recover financial compensation. By pursuing a civil claim against the negligent staff members or the institution that employed them, injured accident victims and their families may be able to recover damages they have incurred as a result of their wrongful conduct as well as damages they may incur in the future.
