One out of five falls among senior citizens results in serious injury, such as fractured bones or head injuries.
Why Are the Elderly Falls So Bad?
Many elderly people, in order to simplify their lives and make living conditions as safe as possible, either choose, or their family chooses on their behalf, to live in assisted care facilities. It is the responsibility of these facilities, including hospitals, clinics and nursing homes, to provide safe living conditions for all people who pass through them. Unfortunately, dangerous conditions are neglected on a frequent basis, and elderly patients are injured in falls as a result. Common slip, trip and fall hazards in assisted care facilities include:
- Muscle weakness and other issues with mobility
- Slick floors and debris
- Poor lighting
- Incorrect bed height
- Improperly fitted or maintained wheelchairs
Getting Justice in New Jersey
You or your elderly loved one should not have to suffer due to the negligence of a care facility or other party. However, without legal representation from a qualified professional, you may be left having to pay for the consequences all by yourself. Don't let justice get away. Contact the dedicated New Jersey slip and fall attorneys at Lependorf & Silverstein, P.C. today.
