Broken Bones In A Nursing Home

Even in a young adult, a bone fracture may require months to heal. In a senior, a broken bone can be far more serious, leading to a loss of mobility and a downward spiral in health. If that injury occurred in the care of a nursing home, you may have legal options.

At The Gold Law Firm in Memphis, Tennessee, our lawyers represent people who are injured due to the negligence of others. If you or a family member suffered a serious injury such as a broken bone in a nursing home or other elder care facility, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.

Was The Injury Preventable?

When a person suffers a broken bone in a fall or other accident, many people pass off the injury as the inevitable effect of aging. In many cases, however, the injury could have been prevented by simple steps such as:

  • Assisting the person in the bathroom
  • Preventing elopement (wandering away from the facility)
  • Providing properly fitted assistive devices such as canes and walkers
  • Monitoring residents following a medication change

If the nursing facility was negligent, you may be able to recover compensation for damages such as medical bills, pain and suffering, and loss of enjoyment of life.
