Could Your Loved One's Nursing Home Fall Been Prevented?

We Help Families Get To The Bottom Of Suspicious Injuries

When you learn that the nursing home or assisted living facility which you have entrusted to care for your loved one is failing to maintain a proper standard of care, you can feel both betrayed and devastated. If your loved one was neglected or suffered a serious fall, it is important to retain the services of an attorney with significant experience handling nursing home abuse and neglect cases.

At Klein & Carney Co., L.P.A., in Cleveland, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of nursing home patients and their families throughout northeastern Ohio.

Many Injuries Result From Insufficient Staffing Or Training

When there is insufficient supervision, a lack of employees or an improperly trained staff, unnecessary accidents can occur. For example, avoidable falls and fractures result when patients have to perform tasks themselves because nurses or nurse's aides are unavailable to assist them. Patients can also fall from beds, chairs and wheelchairs only to be left helpless when there is no response to the call button. In these situations, the lack of proper supervision or training, coupled with the delicate condition of these elderly patients, can prove catastrophic or even fatal.

In cases of death caused by negligence or malpractice, Ohio wrongful death law allows for compensation for a variety of damages. We can help you pursue financial compensation for all elements of your loss.

If your loved one has suffered a broken hip, head trauma, brain injury or spinal injury as a result of a fall, the nursing home may have failed to provide the care your loved one expected and deserved.
