Shediac Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Accidents at nursing homes can have devastating outcomes. 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 serious injuries as a result of a fall.

Depending on a number of factors, including the accident victim’s age and medical condition, the injuries they sustain in a nursing home accident can range in severity from moderate to catastrophic. Injuries commonly sustained in nursing home 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

Due to their age and possible physical fragility, injuries sustained by seniors in traumatic accidents can have prolonged, painful effects that could plague injured accident survivors for the rest of their lives. Injuries sustained in nursing home accidents can even accelerate an accident victim’s premature death.

Even after receiving necessary medical treatment, including complicated invasive surgeries, injured victims of nursing home accidents may never truly recover from their physical maladies. Because of an accident in their long-term care facility, injured residents could lose their mobility, endure pain and discomfort throughout their remaining years, and lose a substantial amount of money in medical expenses and other damages.

Injurious accidents in nursing homes are frequently the result of their staffs’ negligence. If the administrators, nurses, orderlies, security guards, custodians, or other staff members at a nursing home neglect the duty of care they are required to provide to their elderly residents and an injury-causing accident ensues as a result, the at-fault nursing home staff may be considered negligent. Common examples of nursing home negligence that could cause an elderly resident to sustain injuries in an accident 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
