Free Consultation • No Attorney’s Fees Unless You Win
Was your elderly loved one severely injured after taking a fall in his or her nursing home? Contact our offices in Mentor, Mayfield Heights, Cleveland, Russell, Twinsburg, Independence or Westlake to arrange a free consultation. We handle all claims of nursing home neglect on a contingency basis.
In situations where a nursing home resident has been severely injured or died after falling, the Ohio Department of Health conducts an investigation to determine if the incident occurred as a result of negligence or abuse, the results of which will be used as part of our own investigation.
To further determine whether appropriate measures were taken to prevent serious falls or if violations in standards of care existed that led to the fall, we will also use expert testimony from former nursing home administrators familiar with nursing home procedures and experienced nursing home health care providers.
We will also work with the doctors and nurses overseeing the care of the nursing home resident to get a bigger picture of that person’s prior health to determine if your elderly relative was at risk for falling, or whether he or she had a history of falling. In some cases, the victims of the fall may have had dementia or been physically incapable of activity. In other cases, they might have still been physically active and mentally fit.
The vast majority of cases against nursing homes settle. Our personal injury lawyers will prepare your case for trial, fighting to protect your rights, and ensure that if settlement is reached, it will take into account all factors surrounding the situation, including the nursing home resident’s life expectancy, quality of life, severity of neglect and pain suffered.
