Nursing Home Fall Lawyer in Maryland
One of the most dangerous threats to a nursing home resident is a fall. These accidents can have a lifetime of complications, and it is the responsibility of the staff at the home to keep residents from experiencing them. When your loved one’s caretakers fail to prevent a fall, the responsible party needs to be accountable for the cost of their actions.
Compassionate Representation After A Nursing Home Fall
I am attorney A.J. Serafini, and I have been representing our injured elders in nursing home injury claims for more than 12 years. In the time I have been guiding clients through their claims at Serafini Law, I have earned verdicts and settlements worth millions of dollars for them.
The Causes Of A Nursing Home Fall
Identifying what caused your loved one’s fall is the first step in building a personal injury claim they can count on. Over the years, I have represented clients through these injury claims in Maryland, I have helped them recover from falls caused by:
- Lack of restraint
- Faulty equipment like beds and wheelchairs
- Poorly maintained property
The staff of the nursing home may try to underplay the severity of the fall, but it is important to understand what your loved one may experience in their injuries.
How A Fall In a Nursing Home Can Harm Someone
Any fall can be deadly for our elders. For example, simply falling from a bed or even in a standing position can result in serious injuries such as:
- Traumatic brain injuries
- Broken bones
- Heart attacks
- Nerve damage
- Loss of life
These injuries can come with considerable costs, including medical expenses, therapy costs, and pain and suffering. My goal as your lawyer is to fight to maximize the compensation my clients receive for these injuries through negotiation and litigation.
