Wolfville Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer


Accidents in nursing homes can have disastrous, even fatal consequences. When the elderly residents of long-term care facilities do not receive an appropriate level of care from the staff hired to prioritize their physical safety and well-being, accidents can happen. And depending on the circumstances, accidents in nursing homes can cause residents to sustain severe injuries, some of which may even accelerate their premature deaths.

Globally, 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 fall. When the negligence of a nursing home’s staff members causes an elderly resident to slip and fall, the accident victim typically sustains a number of injuries of varying degrees of severity. These injuries frequently 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

Whereas younger accident victims might be able to walk away from a slip and fall without any noticeable injuries, the same circumstances could lead a senior citizen to experience physical pain and discomfort for the rest of their lives. In order to cope with the physical injuries they sustained in an accident, injured seniors may require hospitalization, surgery, medication, lifestyle adjustments, medical equipment, and other costly expenses related to the injuries they sustained.

The wrongful conduct of nurses, orderlies, administrators, custodians, and security guards employed by nursing homes can have long-lasting physical, emotional, and financial repercussions for both injured accident victims and their families. Since most seniors residing in nursing homes live on strictly fixed incomes, if they are injured in an accident and incur expensive costs as a result, they may need to rely on their family members to try affording their necessary expenditures.

It can be difficult to determine liability in nursing home negligence claims. However, many accidents resulting in physical injuries within long-term care facilities are often the result of its staff’s negligence. People who work in nursing homes owe a duty of care to the facility’s residents. If they fail to uphold this duty of care by violating rules, engaging in wrongful conduct, or behaving in an otherwise negligent manner, they may be responsible for financially compensating the people who were injured because of their negligence.
