Nursing Home Falls

Making the decision to place your elderly or disabled loved one in a nursing home is not easy. You spend countless hours researching your options and do everything in your power to choose a facility that will keep your loved one safe. That makes it devastating when you find out your loved one has been injured in a fall that could have and should have been prevented.

Falls in nursing homes can result in death and catastrophic injuries such as traumatic brain injury (TBI), spinal cord injury and broken hips. This is simply unacceptable. When nursing homes are properly staffed and their staff members are properly trained to monitor and care for their residents, falls do not happen.

A Fall In A Nursing Home Can Seriously Injure Your Loved One

If a nursing home has violated your trust and allowed your loved one to get hurt in a fall, it is in your best interest to speak to an experienced Syracuse nursing home negligence attorney.

At Izzo Law Office, we pursue justice in the form of financial compensation for physical injuries and death caused by falls. We hold negligent nursing homes accountable for poor hiring practices, inadequate staffing, failure to follow standard safety procedures, untrained and/or overworked staff members.

Your elderly or disabled family member was not able to protect himself or herself from falling, but that does not mean you are without options now. You can assert your legal rights and hold the nursing home accountable for its negligence. Our founding attorney, Janet Izzo, encourages our clients to advocate for the vulnerable and disabled loved ones in their lives.
