Why Do Falls Happen?
As our bodies age, our balance and mobility can be affected. Care facilities should have steps in place to help elderly patients move throughout the facility safely to prevent a fall. Slips and falls in nursing homes can be attributed to numerous factors, including:
- Loss of balance
- Leg or hip injuries that require canes
- Missing wheelchairs
- Being unable to find a nurse or orderly
- Slips due to spills
- Medication that leads to loss of balance or perceptive difficulty

It is our goal to ensure that you recover full and fair monetary compensation to allow you to pay for any medical treatment that results from the fall. We will not only seek monetary compensation but also encourage the nursing home staff to rectify the root causes of these issues.
