When we place our elderly in nursing homes we expect that they will receive the necessary care required to keep them safe. However, negligence can occur and our loved ones can fall down and be injured in nursing homes. A fall can often cause a precipitous decline in the health of an elderly person. If you or someone you care for has been injured in a fall at a nursing home, you need an experienced attorney to help you recover full and fair compensation. You want a lawyer by your side that understands these types of claims, and who has helped others in similar situations.
Hudson & Castle has represented personal injury victims throughout Delaware for more than four decades. We have over 90 years combined experience, with a dedication to provide the highest level of client service and individualized personal attention. Our office uses a high-tech case management system, so that we can devote our energy and efforts to getting full and fair compensation for your injuries.
We offer personal counsel to individuals and their families in cases involving physical injury caused by falls at a nursing home. We understand the causes of these types of injuries and know how to investigate and determine liability, including situations involving:
- Failure by nursing home personnel to monitor or ensure that bed rails are up
- Negligently allowing people to get out of bed when health conditions dictate otherwise
- Wet or slippery floors causing injury
- Failure to use a wheelchair, provide a chaperone, or monitor the time a resident is in the bathroom
- Inadequate staffing, training, equipment or monitoring.
We are experienced in all types of injury claims, from soft tissue damage, such as sprains or bruises, to serious and catastrophic injury, or wrongful death.
