NY Nursing Home Slip & Fall Injury Lawyer
Many nursing home residents have weakened limbs and gait problems that make them especially vulnerable to falls. Nursing home staff members must be adequately trained in assisting residents with walking, and they must be present to monitor residents. All too often, these conditions are not met.
Nursing home falls can be caused by:
- Wet floors
- Inadequate lighting
- Inadequate training in lifting and moving residents
- Hazards in hallways
- Improper use of restraints
Our New York nursing home falls attorneys have the skill and experience to investigate the causes of nursing home accidents and to determine whether negligence played a role. We are committed to helping victims of nursing home abuse and protecting others from suffering in the future.
