Madawaska County Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


When families in Madawaska County make the difficult decision to move their elderly relatives into a local nursing home, they do so because they believe the facility’s staff will provide their loved ones with the highest degree of attention, comfort, and care. No one expects their relatives to be hurt in an accident in the very facility designed to keep them safe from harm.

However, the negligence of a nursing home’s administrators, orderlies, nurses, security personnel, custodians, and other members of the staff can cause residents of the facility to sustain serious accidental injuries. Owing to the advanced age and often frail medical condition of nursing home residents, accidents in long-term care facilities can have devastating consequences, even accelerating untimely deaths.

Senior citizens 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. In Madawaska County nursing homes, accidents of this nature are frequently caused by the negligence of its staff.

Nursing home staff owe a duty of care to the facility’s residents. If staff members at the nursing home fail to uphold this duty of care through a number of different wrongful actions or inactions, vulnerable residents can sustain severe injuries. These injuries may 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

Determining fault in nursing home negligence claims can be a difficult process. A variety of evidence, including staff logs, video surveillance footage, and more may be required in order to prove that the negligence of staff members caused the circumstances of your relative’s accident. However, if it can be proven that the nursing home’s staff shirked their duty of care, they may be liable for damages resulting from your loved one’s injuries.

Often, nursing home staff fail to reasonably fulfill their duty of care through lack of supervision.If left unsupervised, residents may wander outside or into restricted areas where they may be at risk of injuries. Custodial or maintenance staff may also fail to adequately address potential hazards at the facility, such as broken handrails on staircases or cluttered walkways. By neglecting to remove or repair these hazards, staff may be considered responsible for accidents that occur as a result. Additionally, nursing home residents may be administered medication causing drowsiness or dizziness. If they are not provided with proper mobility assistance after receiving their medication, the negligent nurses or orderlies who failed to provide care may be considered negligent if an accident occurs.
