The Importance Of Proper Restraints At Nursing Homes
It is easier for an elderly person to become injured as a result of a fall due to fragile and brittle bones. Falls even from a short height can result in fractures, broken bones and other severe injury. Improper restraints can lead to bruising, fractures and head injuries. In extreme cases, they can lead to wrongful death as a result of strangulation.
With more than two decades of experience, our law firm can handle even the most complex nursing home negligence cases related to falls or restraints. We will help you seek fair and full compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, funeral expenses and other losses.
