Nursing Home Head Injuries
When you place loved ones in the care of a nursing home, you expect that their needs will be met and they will be safe from harm. Unfortunately, negligence and abuse in nursing homes are all too common. Some statistics indicate that negligence or abuse occurs in as much as 30 percent of nursing homes nationwide.
Nursing home injuries frequently occur when an elderly person is not properly supervised and falls as a result. This may cause a traumatic head injury or broken bones. If your loved one's injury was caused by nursing home negligence, the facility may be held accountable for any damages that occur.
If your elderly loved one has fallen while at a nursing home, it is vital to hold the nursing home management and staff responsible for their negligence. The attorneys at Weik, Nitsche & Dougherty handle nursing home negligence cases throughout Delaware.Wilmington Elder Fall Lawyers
