Chicago Falls, Broken Bones and Neglect Attorneys

Many elderly nursing home residents suffer from dementia, diminished cognitive ability and lack of balance. When coupled with weak muscles and brittle bones, a fall can have devastating consequences. Individuals can suffer multiple fractures, broken hips, internal bleeding or closed head injuries. If your loved one has fallen while in the care of a nursing home, contact our office immediately.

While it is true that many falls cannot be prevented or avoided, it is crucial that a nursing home staff and supervisors take every precaution possible to protect elderly residents. At Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish, our falls, broken bones and neglect lawyers in Chicago understand the frustration you feel when a medical professional acts negligently. We can examine your situation as well as the hiring policies and the staff history of the nursing home to ensure this behavior is corrected and you receive monetary compensation that allows you to pursue the medical treatment your loved one deserves.

Falls, and the subsequent broken bones and torn tendons, can result from a number of different situations, including:

  • Lack of attention
  • Lack of fall protection
  • Defective equipment
  • Faulty safety measures
  • Failure to monitor

The sad truth is that when an elderly resident of a nursing home is ignored for long enough, he or she will attempt to take matters into his or her own hands. Whether this means making an unassisted trip to the washroom, or trying to find something to eat, it is not uncommon for these individuals to take a tumble and break bones in the process. We strive to hold negligent management or staff members accountable for their lack of attention. Contact our firm today to schedule a free consultation.
