Protecting Victims Of Nursing Home Slip And Falls

While slip-and-fall accidents can be dangerous for all persons, they are especially treacherous for the elderly. A slip and fall can easily cause severe bruising, broken bones, strained ligaments or even death.

When your elderly family member is in the care of a nursing home, it is the facility's responsibility to care for their health. If they are injured while under the home's care, La Sorsa & Beneventano can carefully evaluate the situation and determine whether the incident was caused by negligence. Our caring attorneys are dedicated to protecting the well-being of New York's elderly and will pursue their best interests.

If your loved one was injured in a slip-and-fall accident, call our White Plains office at 914-821-6922. Our dedicated legal counsel can help your family pursue the compensation it deserves.

When Is The Nursing Home Liable?

Elderly persons may struggle with balance and be more prone to falls than the average adult. Nursing homes are not liable for all resident falls, but they are liable for slip-and-fall accidents that occur due to negligence or neglect. This can include a variety of factors, such as failure to clean up spilled liquids, inadequate supervision of residents or not properly clearing ice during the winter months.

In order to successfully win your case, you must be able to show that the accident would not have happened if the nursing home had taken proper safety precautions. La Sorsa & Beneventano is experienced at trying cases against nursing homes and understands what details are necessary for a successful resolution. Our lawyers will carefully guide you through the process and protect your best interests.
