San Antonio Lawyer Handling Nursing Home Neglect & Falls

When Inadequate Staffing Leads to Falls and Drops in Nursing Homes

As people get older, they require support in more areas of their lives. Many people who are in nursing homes are dependent on the staff to transfer them from one place to another, such as from bed to wheelchair. However, when a nursing home is short-staffed, many residents do not receive the support they need when being transported from one place to the next.

If your loved one suffered a fall from bed or was dropped, because he or she did not have the necessary support by the nursing home staff, it is important to hold the nursing home accountable for their negligence.

At the Law Offices of Glenn W. Cunningham, we aggressively pursue nursing homes and other medical professionals who cause injuries and death to innocent victims. We have 20 years of experience handling personal injury matters, and we can help you receive the compensation you need.

Texas Nursing Home Residents Dropped by Staff

When a senior falls from their bed or is dropped during a transfer, one of the largest concerns is broken or fractured hips. Statistically, about 40 percent of the elderly who break their hips die from complications within a year. The unfortunate reality is that a fall or drop for a senior is often the "straw that breaks the camel's back."

If your loved one was dropped by a staff member at the nursing home, a San Antonio attorney who handles nursing home neglect and falls can help you hold the nursing home accountable for their negligence.
