Nursing Home Falls
Dayton Nursing Home Fall Injury Attorneys
When we entrust the daily care of our elderly loved ones to nursing homes or other care facilities, we have every right to expect a high level of attention and care. When our loved ones suffer an injury due to these facilities not meeting our expectations or living up to the required standards, we have every right to pursue compensation.
At the Ohio law firm of Stamps & Stamps in Dayton, our nursing home fall injury lawyers are dedicated to holding negligent caretakers responsible for the harm they have caused. We put more than 60 years of experience to work in pursuing injury claims and protecting the interests of our clients.
Pursuing Claims Against Nursing Home Employees
From doctors and nurses to pages and orderlies, every individual employed by a nursing home or other assisted living facility is required to use a certain standard of care with each resident. We understand what level of care is required and what can be done when it is not followed. We can pursue a nursing home fall injury claim after the following types of accidents:
- Slips-and-falls caused by wet floors
- Trips-and-falls caused by negligent supervision
- Falls caused by poorly trained staff during bed transfers
- Falls caused by lack of handrails and other support
Pursuing Claims Against Assisted Living Facilities
In addition to pursuing malpractice claims against negligent doctors and nurses, we also pursue nursing home fall injury claims against the nursing home or other assisted living facility. The owners of these facilities have a duty to ensure that they are not negligent in hiring or training their employees. They must also respond to, and properly handle, any nursing home neglect claims put forth by their residents or their families. If the proper actions are not taken, these facilities can also be deemed negligent.
