Physical Transportation Injuries
Many elderly residents of nursing homes have to be transported to and from their beds, to the bathroom, and in and out of wheelchairs. Nursing aids and other medical staff are responsible for safely transporting the individual. However, when someone awkwardly lifts an individual, slips or stumbles, the person being lifted can suffer serious injuries. These can include head injuries, spinal cord injuries, severe bruises and lacerations, as well as other injuries.
Vehicle Transportation Injuries
In some cases, an elderly individual must be transported from a nursing home to a hospital, medical facility or other location. The responsibility for his or her safety rests solely on the nursing home. If a car accident occurs or the nursing home resident is otherwise injured by a vehicle, the nursing home may be responsible for the injuries and losses suffered by the resident.
Any nursing home death is disturbing and needs to be investigated. Our firm can help families dealing with the aftermath of a transportation accident that fatally injured their loved one who was in the care of a nursing home. We have extensive experience handling unexplained deaths in nursing homes and taking action through wrongful death lawsuits against the negligent parties.
