PERSONAL INJURY | NURSING HOME ABUSE OR NEGLECT | INJURIES FROM FALLS | FALLS FROM BED | FALLS IN BATHROOMS | LACK OF SUPERVISION OR MONITORING
One of the most common accidents suffered by residents or patients at a nursing home or long-term care facility is a fall. A patient can fall from a bed that lacks proper rails or restraining mechanisms, or in a bathroom. A resident may be left unattended and wander the halls, falling down stairs or in other common areas. When your loved one has been hurt as a result of a fall at a nursing home, you want an experienced personal injury lawyer to help you get full and fair compensation for their losses.
At Blackman Legal Group, with offices throughout California, our attorneys have focused exclusively on personal injury for over three decades. We will carefully explain the law and process to you, as well as your options and chances of success. We thoroughly prepare every case, paying close attention to every detail of your claim. We have settled many personal injury claims at or above policy limits and have secured numerous verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million.
We offer a complimentary case evaluation in all cases involving nursing home falls. To set up an appointment, contact Blackman Legal Group by e-mail or call our office at 415-585-5200 (toll-free at 866-692-8126).
WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED IN A FALL IN A NURSING HOME
We protect the rights of people who have been hurt in nursing home falls, handling accidents involving
- bedridden residents or patients who fall because of failure to properly set bedrails, or failure to use appropriate restraints to keep patients from falling out of bed
- falls resulting from inadequate monitoring or lack of attention, where residents who required assistance fell while attempting to move on their own
- falls where residents were abandoned or not properly monitored and wandered away from their room, falling down stairs or as a result of other hazardous conditions
We handle all types of injuries sustained in a nursing home fall, from bruises, lacerations or sprained muscles to serious and catastrophic injury, including broken bones, brain or spinal cord injury, paralysis, or loss of limb. We also represent surviving family members in wrongful death claims resulting from nursing home falls.
We litigate nursing home fall injury claims on a contingent fee basis. Our legal fees are based on a successful outcome. We won’t charge attorney fees unless we recover compensation for your injuries.
