Falls and Fractures in New Jersey Nursing Homes
We Represent Clients on a Contingency Fee Basis · No-Cost Case Evaluation
Falls and broken bones in a nursing home setting are often passed off as inevitable effects of aging. However, sometimes these injuries are more an effect of nursing home negligence than aging. At the law firm of Eichen Crutchlow Zaslow, LLP, we are a team of leading New Jersey personal injury trial attorneys with a strong record of representing victims of nursing home negligence. If your loved one has suffered a fractured hip or other injury following a fall in a nursing home, we offer a free consultation to evaluate your case.
With offices in Edison, Red Bank and Toms River, our lawyers advise and represent nursing home residents and their families throughout New Jersey. Our lawyers are recognized among the leading medical malpractice attorneys in New Jersey, with a case record of successful settlements and verdicts exceeding $550 million on behalf of plaintiffs.
Fall Injuries May Be Preventable
Nursing homes in New Jersey are required to meet a standard of care regarding the health of residents. For a resident at risk of falls, that standard of care includes providing assistance and safety devices to minimize the risk of falls. At-risk residents include those with a history of falls, a disease such as Parkinson’s, dementia or stroke.
Fractures can lead to serious health problems such as pneumonia, bedsores and infections. An elderly person who suffers a hip fracture may never recover full mobility following the injury.
