Glace Bay Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Across the world, senior citizens are the demographic most susceptible to slip and fall accidents. On top of that, seniors are more likely than any other age group to sustain serious injuries as a result of a fall. The same conditions that cause only minor injuries in younger accident victims could, in fact, adversely impact a senior citizen’s physical health and overall quality of life in perpetuity.

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere, while performing any number of activities. However, when seniors are injured in slips and falls at their nursing home, it can feel like a deep betrayal of trust. After all, nursing homes exist to keep their residents safe. The staff of long-term care facilities are paid to provide residents with a dignified and comfortable life, free from the risk of injuries.  Unfortunately, injury-causing accidents occur at nursing homes all-too frequently.

The administrators, orderlies, nurses, security personnel, custodians, and other members of a nursing home’s staff have an obligation to provide their residents with a duty of care. If the very people responsible for keeping nursing home residents safe instead fail to uphold their duty of care, edlerly resident can sustain serious injuries. Owing to their advanced age, even a moderate injury can substantially impact a senior’s quality of life.

Injuries frequently sustained in accidents caused by negligence in nursing homes 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

Not all injuries at nursing homes are the result of their staff’s negligence. However, if staff fail to take sufficient measures to keep residents from accidentally sustaining injuries, they may be considered negligent. Some examples of nursing home negligence that often culminate in injurious accidents include:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Failure to provide mobility assistance
  • Prescription medication causing drowsiness
  • Hazardous maintenance issues
  • Unlock doors to restricted areas
  • And more

When the negligence of nursing home staff leads to injury-causing accidents, injured residents of long-term care facilities and their families could sustain financial losses. Often related to costs of medical care, the damages arising from injuries caused by nursing home negligence could leave residents and their families in precarious financial shape.

If you or a loved one was injured in a long-term care facility, determining liability can be challenging. If you believe the negligence of the facility’s staff or administrators caused the conditions that led to the injurious accident, consider consulting with our nursing home negligence lawyers serving Glace Bay to learn if you may be entitled to financial compensation.

If you are eligible to file a civil claim, our Glace Bay nursing home negligence lawyers may be able to help you prove that the facility’s staff did not adequately fulfill their duty of care, and that this breach of their responsibilities was directly responsible for an injury-causing accident in which you or your loved one sustained compensable damages.
