Are Nursing Homes Liable for Slips and Falls?
Nursing homes are legally liable when one of their residents is injured in a slip and fall, but these cases also differ from other slip and fall lawsuits.
Seniors are more likely to fall and more likely to suffer serious injuries due to their age and health conditions, and often the cause is not related to their surroundings.
A fall in a managed care facility can happen the way these accidents typically take place, such as a person slipping on uneven carpet or on a wet floor, but that is often not the case. Instead, when an elderly person falls in a nursing home, it is typically because they weren’t adequately supervised. Here are more reasons a nursing home may be liable.
