Attorney for Elderly Slip and Fall Cases


Elderly people are more at risk of slipping and falling, on account of their health, sometimes eyesight and usually from their other comorbidities and illnesses that make them prone to balance issues when walking. If elderly people are being taken care of outside of their home, such as in a nursing home, then the nursing home staff is responsible to keep them safe from falling down in that facility. When an elderly person falls down, there is a high likelihood of the individual breaking bones, breaking a hip or having a serious injury related to the fall.

Typical Injuries from Elderly People Who Slip and Fall at a Nursing Home

Elderly people can be cared for out of the home, at care facilities specifically designed to meet their around-the-clock needs. If you are an elderly person, you may be cared for in a:

  • Nursing home
  • Adult daycare facility
  • Hospice care facility
  • Rehabilitation center
  • Outpatient center to a hospital
  • Other urgent care facility

While you are being cared for at the facility, it is the responsibility of the workers and clinical staff at the facility to ensure that you do not fall down or hurt yourself in any way. When an elderly person falls down, or slips and falls, it is possible to break bones, break the back or severely injure the spinal column. For this reason, it is critical that the environment at a facility for elderly people care for them to ensure that they do not slip and fall on the premises.

What Do Elderly People Slip and Fall on at a Nursing Home or Elder Care Facility?

Elderly people can fall quite easily at a nursing home or elder care facility. It is the responsibility of the elder care staff and workers to ensure the safety of the elders at the facility at all times.

  • Unsafe surfaces with sharp edges
  • Ladders left out and other work tools left on the flooring in high traffic areas
  • Slipping in shower areas
  • Mold on shower stalls causing falls
