Chéticamp Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Accidents in nursing homes can have severe outcomes for injured seniors residing in long-term care facilities. Unfortunately, when the home’s nurses, orderlies, administrators, custodians, security guards, or other members of the staff fail to provide their residents with the requisite care, accidents can happen. In many situations, the consequences of these accidents could plague an injured resident for the rest of their lives. In truly unfortunate circumstances, accidents in nursing homes could even accelerate an injured resident’s untimely death.

The residents of nursing homes and their families trust that their facility’s staff will provide them with a dignified, comfortable, and safe living experience. However, through a number of different actions, inactions, errors, or other forms of negligence, the staff at nursing homes could fail to uphold the duty of care they are required to provide to the facility’s residents. By doing so, they could create potentially hazardous circumstances in which injury-causing accidents could occur.

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

The injuries sustained in nursing home accidents caused by the staff’s negligence could have devastating repercussions for injured seniors. Seniors are more susceptible to sustaining serious injuries as the result of slips and falls. Oftentimes, these injuries require hospitalization, complicated invasive surgeries, the use of medical equipment and ambulatory assistance, and drastic lifestyle changes.

Injuries that frequently occur as the result of accidents caused by the negligence of nursing home staff members 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

Even after receiving medical treatment for the injuries they have sustained, injured victims of nursing home accidents may never truly recover. Because of an accident in their nursing home, injured seniors could lose their mobility, endure pain and discomfort throughout their remaining years, and lose a substantial amount of money in medical expenses and other damages.

If you were injured in a nursing home accident or if your elderly loved one was the recipient of negligent care and sustained compensable injuries as a result, you may be entitled to compensation.
