Wrongful Death Caused by Falling in a Nursing Home

Columbus Ohio personal injury attorneys seek justice for families of victims of nursing home falls

Nursing homes are required to assess every resident for fall risk and take appropriate measures to reduce the risk. Not all nursing home fall deaths give rise to a claim against the facility. The circumstances surrounding the fall must be carefully reviewed and evaluated.

Falls are the leading cause of emergency room visits and the primary cause of accidental deaths for individuals over the age of 65, according to the American Academy of Family Physicians. Falls account for 70 percent of deaths for persons 75 years of age or older. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics reveal that every year nearly 2,000 elderly Americans who reside in nursing homes die as a direct result of injuries sustained in falls.

When a family makes the difficult decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, they expect that their loved one will be safe and cared for appropriately. Sadly, that is not always the case. The attorneys at Clark, Perdue & List are experienced in handling wrongful death and injury claims against nursing homes.
