Houston Nursing Home Fall Attorney
Has Your Loved One Suffered an Injury From A Fall In A Nursing Home?
Many elderly people are frail. If they fall, they will break a bone, severely bruise muscles or sustain a head injury. Nursing homes frequently do not do enough to prevent falls in older patients. If you believe your family member’s fall was caused by negligence on the part of the nursing home staff, you need to speak with a Houston lawyer handling cases involving injury due to nursing home falls.

Helping You Hold the Nursing Home Accountable
Most falls in nursing homes are preventable. Lack of staff, failure to communicate with patients and a general lack of compassion may contribute to serious injuries caused by falls. Patients may try to get out of bed on their own and injure themselves, or be left unattended and try to get back to their rooms, sustaining a bone fracture. All of this is negligence on the part of the nursing home, which you have entrusted to care for your loved one.
Many nursing homes blame these falls on the patient, claiming that they didn’t know or “we can’t watch them every second.” Actually, that’s their job. By holding the nursing home accountable for their negligent behavior, you may help prevent other patients from coming to harm. Our attorneys will help you do this, and pursue compensation on behalf of you and your family member.
