Protect Your Loved One From Nursing Home Fall Injuries

Frail, incapacitated nursing home residents depend upon the care of nurses, physical therapists and other staff. These professionals should keep accurate records of your family member's condition, properly supervise your loved one and report falls when they occur.

When you find that these important duties are being overlooked, the lawyers at Fanelli, Evans & Patel, P.C., can investigate, negotiate with insurers and if necessary, litigate to protect your rights in court.

Standing Up For You And Your Loved One's Rights

Fall injuries are among some of the most serious kinds of injury in Pennsylvania nursing homes. There can be a variety of reasons for a fall to occur, all of which stem from the negligence of the nursing home staff or the facility itself:

  • A loved one who needed care was left unsupervised, leading to a fall
  • Wet floors, poor lighting and other structural issues caused a fall to occur
  • The facility's staff failed to prevent a fall from occurring, or in some cases caused the fall directly
  • A loved one was not given the proper care or medical support they need for a given ailment, resulting in a fall

We do not simply refer victims of nursing home errors to other law firms. Instead, we have built our firm on the principle that every patient deserves to be listened to and treated at all times with respect and the best possible medical and nursing care. Anything short of that, which causes injury or death is simply unacceptable and must be held accountable.
