Falls can be serious for anyone, but even more so for the elderly. A simple fall that results in a bone fracture can lead to life-threatening complications.
That’s why we expect long-term care facilities to prevent falls in Watertown nursing homes as much as possible and to take appropriate steps to treat injuries immediately when they do occur. Many bone fractures and other fall-related injuries that occur in nursing homes are the results of understaffing or residents being forced to take care of themselves.
If you suspect someone you love has not received the attentive care they deserve from their nursing home, resulting in a serious fall, contact the seasoned nursing home abuse attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC.
When nursing home operators choose to increase their profits by providing minimal employee training or understaffing their facilities, the nursing home injury attorneys at D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC use their experience, skill, and resources to hold those decision-makers accountable.
Early investigation is often the key to proving cases of falls in Watertown nursing homes. We need to recover records, interview witnesses and gather all the information needed before the nursing home can conceal or destroy it. For that reason, it is important that you hire an attorney as soon as possible.
Our nursing home attorneys are ready to act quickly and will thoroughly investigate your claim. If we find there is reason to believe neglect or abuse is responsible, we will seek the justice you or your loved one deserves.
Call D’Amico & Pettinicchi, LLC, to talk about your loved one’s fall. The consultation is free, and we handle all nursing home negligence claims on a contingency basis: this means we only get paid if and when we obtain a recovery on your behalf.
