Falls and Unexplained Injuries Lawyer

One of the biggest risks for injuries for the elderly and disabled is falling. When someone is a resident or patient at a nursing home, it is expected that they will be protected from preventable falls and other injuries. If you have a loved one that has been injured from a fall or has unexplained injuries while residing at a nursing home, this may be a sign of neglect or abuse. The team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law handles nursing home negligence injury claims, seeking justice and restitution for victims of nursing home abuse.

According to the CDC, falls are the most common cause of injuries among the elderly. The CDC estimates that nearly 30 million falls occur each year, with 800,000 admittances to the hospital for care and 28,000 deaths. Nursing home staff are well aware of the risk of falls for the elderly and disabled, yet there are still many residents that are injured due to poor safety and prevention measures in these facilities. Falls and unexplained injuries to patients in nursing homes can be a sign of neglect or abuse. Family members or residents should report any suspected neglect to authorities, and contact a personal injury lawyer to discuss their legal options.

Nursing Home Injuries from Falls

There are set standards in medical facilities and nursing homes that should be used to prevent falls. Elderly, disabled or medicated patients in nursing homes are highly susceptible to falls and need supervision. Falls in nursing homes can cause bone fractures, head trauma, brain injuries and other serious injuries. Common causes of nursing home fall accidents include:

  • Lack of restraints used when transferring patients
  • Environmental factors (slippery floors, poor lighting, floor obstacles)
  • Dizziness or weakness caused by medications
  • Inadequate walking aids
  • Lack of staff to assist mobility-challenged patients

If you have a loved one in a nursing home that has suffered from a fall injury, contact our team at Ligori & Ligori Attorneys at Law to discuss your case. You may be able to seek compensation from the nursing home for neglect. Our experienced legal team will evaluate your claim during a free consultation.

What Our Happy Clients say

4.7 / 5.0

Based on 21 reviews

I just wanted to take a quick time out to say something nice about Mr. Tim Sanders. This man spent an entire year handling my affairs like he was my personal friend. He went to bat for me, and I could tell he cared a great deal about me, my case directly, and he clearly takes a great deal of pride and integrity into his work. You hear a lot of negative about lawyers in this world. Tim, was a tireless worker to get me what I deserved. This guy does his living from the heart. I made a really great choice when I called Tim. My wife and I are so thankful we did.

My experience with Ligori & Ligori was excellent. Their attention to detail and genuine concern for my situation showed that they truly cared about me as a client. The staff was professional, knowledgeable, and kept me informed throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Ligori & Ligori to anyone needing help and direction after an auto accident.

Ligori & Ligori is an amazing law firm. The employees take time with you to make sure that you truly understand the details of your case and why things are done a certain way to produce the best results. When calling, I always spoke to a person and on the off chance that a message was left, I received a return call promptly. I highly recommend Ligori & Ligori.

Michael J.

Mr. Ligori's firm took the time to explain the legal process and find another attorney in another county. If this law firm can go the extra distance for not even their client, imagine the dedication and expertise if you were their client.

Angela K.

I got into an auto accident and hired Mr. Sanders to represent me a couple weeks later after my insurance company’s lackluster performance to help get me back to normal. I was nervous, this was my first accident with injury and I had never hired a lawyer before. Well let me say, my expectations were met and exceeded, every step of the way. Ligori and Sanders were focused on me and my health. They were polite, prompt, and went to bat for me when the insurance company was not. Not only would I recommend Ligori and Sanders to anyone who needs them, I would insist.
