Restigouche County Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Across the country, seniors are the people most susceptible to serious injuries resulting from slip and fall accidents. Owing to their advanced age and physical frailty, the injuries sustained by Restigouche County seniors in slip and fall accidents could have devastating, permanent consequences. Oftentimes, the same circumstances that could allow a younger person to walk away from their accident unharmed could have life-long impacts on an elderly accident victim.

Some injuries commonly sustained by senior citizens 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

Slip and fall accidents can happen anywhere. However, when injurious slips and falls occur inside a nursing home or long-term care facility, oftentimes the negligence of its staff is directly responsible. In Restigouche County, the negligence of a nursing home’s administrators, orderlies, nurses, security personnel, custodians, and other members of the staff can cause the facility’s residents to sustain severe injuries, and could even accelerate their premature, wrongful deaths.

If your elderly loved one was injured in an accident caused by the negligence of their nursing home’s staff, our nursing home negligence lawyers serving Restigouche County may be able to provide crucial assistance and legal advice. Without the help of Restigouche County nursing home negligence lawyers, it can be difficult to determine liability for injuries sustained in a long-term care facility slip and fall accident. However, our nursing home negligence lawyers serving Restigouche County may be able to compile various forms of evidence proving that the staff at your relative’s nursing home failed to uphold the duty of care they owe their residents, leading to serious injuries and compensable damages. This evidence may include:

  • Staff logs
  • Video surveillance footage
  • Witness statements
  • Photos of hazards at the accident scene
  • Cleaning schedules
  • Photographs of injuries
  • Attending physician statements
  • Medical records
  • And more

Nursing home staff in Restigouche County may fail to take reasonable actions to protect their elderly residents from harm. Through a number of different actions or inactions, a nursing home’s staff may create favourable conditions for serious accidents to occur.
