Nursing Home Falls: Helping Victims Explore Their Options

When you place a beloved relative in a nursing home, the last thing you expect is that they'll be injured in someone else's care. Unfortunately, incidents such as falls at nursing homes are more common than you might think — and it's vital to explore your legal recourses in their wake.

At Lipton Law, our dedicated nursing home abuse attorneys understand how challenging it can be for victims to keep a level head and respond to mistreatment of a loved one. We believe that Michigan families should understand their options — and we've worked hard to earn the legal experience that lets us keep you informed as we defend your rights to compensation. As a firm with a well-established footprint and highly knowledgeable staff, we're ready to support your pursuit of justice through aggressive representation and incident investigation.

Understanding Nursing Home Fall Cases

No two nursing home injuries are alike. Understanding the particulars of the fall that affected your loved one is vital to pursuing compensation for them. We work to discover and validate court-admissible evidence that reveals who should be liable by examining factors like whether:

  • Nursing home staff intentionally neglected or mistreated your loved one considering their known health issues
  • Care could have been provided more quickly and professionally after the fall
  • The nursing home employed or provided appropriate rails, cushioned surfaces, mobility devices and safely positioned furniture

Nursing home falls don't just happen at random. They're the combined result of many factors, and to prove that you should receive compensation, you need to connect the dots so judges and juries see your side of the story. The lawyers at Lipton Law apply their exhaustive knowledge and proven experience to help victims and survivors put the pieces together, and we're passionate about helping you fight for the improved care or compensation you deserve.

Let Us Get To The Bottom Of Your Case

One of the challenging aspects of nursing home injuries is that fault isn't always clear-cut. Was an individual nurse responsible for not watching a patient who fell, or will a court place some of the blame on the employer who failed to hire enough staff? Even if it's obvious that someone else contributed to your loved one's suffering, it's critical to target the right party or parties.
