Dieppe Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Negligence in nursing homes can lead to injuries and wrongful deaths. The wrongful actions or inactions of a nursing home’s orderlies, administrators, security guards, custodians, or other staff members can have far-reaching consequences. When accidents occur in the very facility designed to keep its elderly residents safe, families can lose their beloved parents, grandparents, and other relatives, all because of another party’s negligence.

Accidents in nursing homes can end in severe injuries. Due to their advanced age, when elderly residents sustain serious injuries as the result of an accident in their nursing home, they may experience prolonged physical pain or discomfort, permanent cognitive and physical damage, and a diminished quality of life. The injuries seniors sustain in nursing home accidents could impact the rest of their lives, and even accelerate their passing.

In Dieppe nursing homes, injury-causing accidents can occur when staff members do not properly monitor residents’ activities or implement appropriate safety measures in the facility. Slips and falls are some of the most common accidents caused by negligence in nursing homes. For seniors across the country, slip and fall accidents are the leading cause of injury requiring hospitalization. Some injuries commonly sustained by nursing home residents in slip and fall 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

Nursing home negligence can feel like a deep betrayal of trust. Those Dieppe residents who make the difficult decision to relocate their family members to a long-term care facility trust the home’s staff to provide them with a comfortable, dignified, and safe residential experience. When the very people employed to ensure the safety of the senior citizens in their care fail to prevent accidents from happening, the family members of injured nursing home residents may feel a combination of shock and outrage.

If one of your elderly relatives was seriously injured in an unexpected accident at their long-term care facility, it can be difficult to determine liability. Investigative work could be required in order to identify instances of negligence at the nursing home that created the dangerous conditions that led to their injuries.

If you believe the facility’s staff failed to reasonably fulfill the duty of care they owed to their residents, our Dieppe nursing home negligence lawyers may be able to help you pursue civil action. By filing a lawsuit, our nursing home negligence lawyers serving Dieppe may be able to help you recover financial compensation for damages incurred as a result of injuries sustained in an accident.
