Nursing Home Falls in Long Beach, CA

Work with Highly Experienced Elder Abuse Lawyers

Has a loved one fallen while at a nursing home or assisted living facility? Falls are a serious problem affecting the senior population across the United States. Not only are elderly persons more likely to fall due to balance issues, problems with vision, or other physical/mental impairments, but they are also more likely to be seriously injured. Broken bones and head trauma are most often caused by elder falls.

At times, elder falls may be an indication of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of a nursing home or caregiver. Our Long Beach nursing home abuse attorneys can look at the facts of the matter to determine whether the fall was caused by hazardous property grounds, improper supervision, or even abuse.

Important Facts About Elder Falls

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) places a strong emphasis on elder falls and how to prevent these. According to the CDC:

  • More than 1 in 4 older adults fall each year
  • One in five falls causes a serious injury
  • Falling once doubles one’s chances of falling again
  • More than 95% of hip fractures are caused by falling, typically sideways

Three million older adults are treated in emergency departments for fall-related injuries in the U.S. each year. This is a serious problem that must be addressed, and at Garcia & Artigliere we utilize our experience in elder abuse litigation to help victims recover fair compensation for medical care, emotional trauma, and any other losses or injuries they have experienced. We know we cannot go back and prevent a fall from occurring in the first place, but we can work to reduce its ongoing impact on your life.

For information and insight that applies to your particular case, call (562) 608-1425. Our Long Beach nursing home abuse attorneys are standing by to see how we can help you.
