Recognizing Nursing Home Injuries

Nursing home residents may suffer an injury due to physical abuse by the staff, but they are just as likely to be harmed by poor supervision or inadequate staffing. It is important to recognize the types of avoidable injuries that may occur in nursing homes. You may want to investigate further if you notice:

  • Extensive and severe bruising
  • Infected bedsores
  • Inexplicable broken bones
  • Malnutrition

Our experienced Western Massachusetts personal injury lawyers can help determine if your loved one has suffered an injury because of nursing home negligence. If so, we may be able to get you compensation.

We Hold Nursing Home Companies Accountable

If a loved one has been injured in a nursing home, we will seek recovery not only from liable staff members, but from the company that owns the home as well. Administration problems can often be traced back to the highest levels of a company. Our medical malpractice law firm will hold the entire company responsible for problems in staffing or for failing to adequately train staff and make sure that you and your loved ones get maximum compensation for your losses.
