Riverview Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

Negligence in nursing homes is a deep betrayal of trust. When family members in Riverview make the difficult decision to relocate their elderly loved ones into long-term care facilities, they do so because they believe the experienced staff will provide them with the highest degrees of care. Nursing homes should provide their residents with comfortable, dignified, and safe living environments. When the home’s administrators, nurses, orderlies, custodians, security staff, and other employees fail to fulfill the duty of care they owe their residents, serious accidents can occur.

Nursing home staff in Riverview 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. Common examples of nursing home negligence that could lead to injurious accidents include:

  • Lack of supervision
  • Failure to provide mobility assistance
  • Hazardous maintenance issues
  • Uncleared ice or snow in outdoor areas
  • Unlocked doors to restricted areas
  • Improperly prescribed medications
  • And more

If a nursing home resident is involved in a traumatic accident, they could sustain injuries that significantly impact the rest of their lives. Injuries sustained in slip and fall accidents in nursing homes could even accelerate a resident’s premature death. When the negligence of a nursing home’s staff leads to slip and fall accidents, senior citizens can sustain a host of injuries, ranging in severity from mild to catastrophic. These injuries often 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

If you or a loved one sustained injuries in their long-term care facility because of an accident caused by a staff member’s negligence, in addition to the physical and emotional trauma, accident victims and their families could easily incur expensive costs related to medical care. If you have incurred compensable damages as a result of an accident in a long-term care facility, our nursing home negligence lawyers serving Riverview may be able to help you recover financial compensation.
