Nursing Home Falls

Skilled California Attorneys Seek Justice for Victims of Nursing Home Falls

Sacramento-based firm handles negligence claims against facilities statewide

Elderly and disabled residents of nursing homes and other care facilities frequently suffer harmful falls. These incidents cause head trauma, hip fractures and other severe injuries. If you or your loved one fell and was injured because of the negligence of nursing home staff, Mastagni Holstedt, A.P.C. will seek to hold the facility accountable through a lawsuit. Our attorneys pursue maximum compensation for clients throughout California from our offices in Sacramento and four other locations.  

How nursing home falls happen

Individuals who require care in a nursing home are often vulnerable to falls and are typically susceptible to much more serious consequences in these accidents than people who live on their own. Nursing home staff and administrators owe residents a duty of care to provide a safe environment so that preventable falls do not occur. Unfortunately, even a moment of carelessness can lead to a severe, or even fatal, injury. Common causes of falls in nursing homes include the following:

  • Lack of assistance with mobility and transfers
  • Inadequate monitoring of residents
  • Wet floors, uneven floor surfaces and poor lighting 
  • Improper use of assistive devices or restraints
  • Poorly maintained assistive equipment
  • Medication errors that result in dizziness or weakness

If you or your family member suffered injuries in a fall at a nursing facility and negligence on the part of the facility or one of its employees is to blame, we can advise you about collecting compensation for medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages. 

Physical and emotional consequences of nursing home falls

Nursing home falls can result in serious injuries requiring emergency medical treatment, surgery, rehabilitation and other expensive care. These severe consequences are often compounded by the victims’ advanced age or ill health. Bone fractures, concussions, traumatic brain injuries, spinal injuries and soft tissue damage from falls may leave individuals immobilized and bedridden, further reducing their independence and overall quality of life. Fall victims are often at risk for complications from their injuries and they are more prone to falling again in the future. In addition to the physical effects, victims may experience emotional distress and psychological trauma. Our personal injury law firm assists residents and their families as they strive to obtain an appropriate legal remedy from the liable parties.  

How we resolve nursing home fall claims

Residential care facilities are responsible for providing safe and supportive living environments to those who live there. When they fail to act properly, facilities can be held financially liable through a legal claim. Our firm will investigate the facts, obtain relevant evidence, and solicit expert testimony from medical experts as to how injuries occurred and how they will affect the victim’s life. You can rely on us for an honest assessment of potential damages and strong representation during negotiations with the at-fault nursing home, their attorneys and their insurers. If we are unable to reach a satisfactory settlement, we are accomplished trial advocates who will take your case to court.
