Fredericton Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Nursing homes in Fredericton are intended to provide a comfortable, dignified, and safe living environment in which to enjoy their retirement years. Families who make the difficult decision to relocate their elderly relatives into a nursing home often take comfort in the faith that their loved ones will be cared for by a courteous, knowledgeable, and conscientious staff.

Unfortunately, negligence in Fredericton nursing homes occurs more often than people may think. And when the wrongful actions (or inactions) of a nursing home’s orderlies, administrators, security personnel, custodians, and other members of the staff leads to accidents, vulnerable elderly relatives can easily sustain serious– sometimes fatal– injuries.

Elderly residents of nursing homes are particularly vulnerable to injury-causing slip and fall accidents as the result of staff negligence. The people responsible for ensuring the safety of seniors in the home often fail to fulfill the duty of care they owe their residents. They may neglect to remove, repair, or otherwise address potential maintenance hazards in and around their facility, which could easily cause an older resident to sustain injuries. Staff may fail to adequately monitor the movement of their residents; if left unsupervised, residents may find themselves in potentially dangerous circumstances. In addition, if residents take medication that causes drowsiness or dizziness, they may require assistance moving throughout the nursing home. When staff are aware of these side-effects but allow the residents to move without a mobility aid, they may be considered negligent in the event of a slip and fall accident.

Seniors are the demographic most likely to be involved in a slip and fall accident, as well as the age group most likely to sustain injuries requiring hospitalization as the result of a slip and fall. When these accidents occur in their nursing homes, elderly residents may never fully recover from the injuries they sustain. These injuries commonly 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
