When your mother falls and gets hurt in the Illinois nursing home that is supposed to be caring for her, it is natural that you have questions. You, and you family, may be wondering whether she fell due to nursing home negligence or whether it was just an accident.
The Answer to That Question Is Important
But it may be hard to find out the truth on your own. The nursing home may not want to provide you with details about her fall. The staff may be afraid of potential liability. However, it is important for you to know the truth so that you can decide whether to bring a nursing home negligence or abuse case.
An experienced nursing home abuse lawyer can help you get the answers that you need so that you can decide what to do next. For example, an attorney can help you find out if:
- The fall was due to staff negligence or negligent policies and procedures. If nursing home staff failed to exercise reasonable care or if the nursing home failed to have reasonable policies and procedures in place and those failures resulted in your mom’s fall, then your mom may have a case.
- The fall was due to abuse. Physical abuse can result in a dangerous fall. Additionally, psychological abuse may have prevented your mom from calling for help, and may have contributed to her fall.
If believe that reasonable care could have prevented your mom’s fall injury, then it is important to take action quickly. Please call us at 800-800-5678 to learn more today.
