Saint John Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Although residents of Saint John trust the staff at local nursing homes to provide their elderly relatives with the utmost degree of care and attention, negligence at nursing homes can– and does– occur. Oftentimes, the negligence of a nursing home’s orderlies, administrators, security personnel, custodians, and other members of the staff causes accidents leading to severe, potentially fatal injuries.

A number of different negligent actions or inactions can cause elderly residents of nursing homes to suffer serious injuries. Unlocked doors to the restricted areas or outdoor spaces, recently mopped floors, uneven surfaces, poor lighting, loose handrails, and other everyday hazards pose a substantial risk to the frail, aging residents of Saint John nursing homes.

Nursing home residents frequently sustain injuries in slip and fall accidents, many of which are the result of the staff’s negligence. Any number of maintenance issues at the facility that have been neglected by the home’s staff could cause a vulnerable resident to injure themselves in a fall. Furthermore, if residents are administered medications that cause dizziness or lightheadedness but are not provided with ambulatory support from caregivers who know about the dangerous side-effects, this negligence could put seniors at risk.

Seniors may never fully recover from injuries they sustain in a slip and fall accident. If a senior breaks their hip in a slip and fall accident, the repercussions could be devastating. Broken hips can result in prolonged, intense pain and immobility.  Often, complicated surgery may be required in order to replace a broken hip. However, after receiving hip surgery to treat these injuries, many seniors lose their ability to walk independently. Even more seniors suffer fatalities due to complications following hip replacement surgery.

In addition to hip fractures, common injuries often sustained by seniors in slip and fall accidents include:

  • 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
