Victims of Injury from a Fall
Falls are one of the most common types of nursing home injury. As people age, they lose muscle mass and their sense of balance diminishes. These factors put the elderly at high risk of injury from falls. Nursing homes that fail to institute proper fall protection measures can, in many cases, be held liable for injuries caused by their negligence.
A fall can cause a head injury or a fracture of a hip, arm, shoulder or leg — all injuries that are much more serious in elderly people. The primary injury from a fall is often the event that triggers a rapid decline in someone’s health that often results in death.

A fall in a nursing home can happen in a number of ways. Perhaps the nursing aid failed to put up the bed rails or failed to help the resident out of bed. A turned-up rug or mat can cause a fall, and so can lack of proper handrails, poor lighting or wet floors.
