Fractures

Washington PA Fractures and Accidents Lawyer

According to the statistics, a fracture is one of the predominant hazards people suffer from while admitted to a nursing home. When it comes to younger patients suffering from fractures, it is often easier for them to deal with the pain as well as to recover quickly due to their health and immunity. However, if an elderly person sustains a fracture, then it becomes quite difficult for him or her to recover quickly. Elderly patients are more prone to lose balance while walking or climbing out of bed due to their weakness, health, effects of sedative as well as various other diseases like osteoporosis. This increases the chances of fall when they walk around without assistance or supervision. That is why nursing homes and the staffs there should be even more responsible to take care of such patients so that they don’t have to suffer from such serious injuries again. However, the reality is that negligence happens, and often the authority tries to cover it up. Hence, the reason for the fracture remains unidentified. If you or your loved ones are going through such a situation due to any reason, known or unknown, then you must get a consultation from a professional Washington PA accident lawyer.

When a patient is sustaining a serious injury like a fracture, there will be a probability of bruising as well as acute pain too. However, if the medical chart doesn’t document any significant trauma that might have caused the fracture, then it can be concluded that the injury happened due to sheer negligence of the nursing home staff. Often, it becomes difficult for the patient to recall and communicate the reason for the fracture. Due to complicated treatment process or the effects of medicine, they find it difficult to remember. But it is the duty of the nursing home to determine what must have caused the fracture. If they ignore to do so, then you can file a case of negligence against the nursing home with the help of a skilled Washington PA accident lawyer.

The patients who are suffering from dementia or Alzheimer’s are more likely to feel the pain of sudden injuries, especially fractures more acutely than others. In the most of the cases, they hardly realize when and where the fracture is happening. Hence, it becomes pretty difficult to determine the cause of fracture for them.

Due to the lack of an adequate number of professionals, such accident happens. When the nurse remains busy attending other patients if a weak elderly resident wants to climb out of the bed to go to the bathroom, falls become inevitable; this eventually turns out to be the reason of fracture too. Though it is not a direct case of negligence, yet you can sue the nursing home for their failure to take care of their responsibilities. The Washington PA injury lawyer will help you file the claim.
