The people at the most risk when suffering a slip and fall accident are the elderly. This isn’t just the opinion of Feiner & Lavy, a leading Bronx personal injury firm, but is borne out by statistics and studies. The CDC tells us that there are about 36 million falls among seniors reported every year, resulting in 32,000 deaths.
While senior citizens want to maintain their independence, falls for those who are already in nursing homes require a special kind of law firm, like Feiner & Lavy. The problems begin with getting the nitty, gritty details on the slip-and-fall accident that resulted in injuries to the person whose care has been entrusted to a facility.
Careless behavior toward nursing home residents or negligence in the maintenance of the facility can create problems that can lead to those final years becoming painful final weeks. Care in these facilities can fall well short of legal and ethical requirements and can lead to nasty slip and fall or trip and fall accidents.
The law firm of Feiner & Lavy knows the kinds of hazards that can cause slip and fall accidents for seniors in nursing homes. Slippery floors, objects left in hallways, dimly lit passageways, equipment failures by such basic devices as wheelchairs, or people not receiving assistance can lead to tragic results. Broken bones, shattered hips, head injuries, infected bedsores are the kind of damage that can be caused.
What makes this situation worse is that the nursing home operator doesn’t really care about your parent or relative. They only care about the bottom line and will duck and dodge to avoid making things right. They won’t admit to wrongdoing and will fight tooth-and-nail against your claim. They’ll line up their law firm and their insurance company, who will make it seem like they’re doing you a favor by settling your claim. This is not right. And while they’re grudgingly paying out with one hand, they’ll still be collecting for the inadequate care they provided in the first place.
