Recoverable Damages in a Nursing Home Falls and Fractures Case

Falls that lead to bone fractures can cause life-threatening complications. The resulting medical care and expenses may leave you or your loved one in dire financial straits. More than 15 million older adults in the United States live below 200% of the federal poverty line, according to the National Council on Aging (NCOA). However, you do not have to bear the weight of that financial responsibility alone. If your injuries were due to the negligence or abuse of the nursing home, you are entitled to recover compensation. The money you collect from the liable party can cover your medical and living expenses, and additional required services and care.

Recoverable damages include:

  • Medical expenses
  • Physical therapy
  • Prescription medication
  • Physical disability
  • Home and car modifications
  • Replacement services
  • Traumatic brain injury
  • Broken bones or fractures
  • Physical and emotional pain and suffering

Knowing Whether You Have a Case for Compensation in Maryland

If you were injured in a fall and fracture accident at a nursing home in Catonsville, Maryland, you are likely able to recover damages if the injury was due to the negligence of the nursing home or its staff. However, not all accidents are compensable. For this reason, you must know what makes a viable nursing home abuse and neglect case.

Conditions that Lead to Falls and Fractures

Your accident may be the result of multiple things. Nursing home fall accidents that result from dangerous or faulty conditions may be a premises liability issue. For example, the nursing home may have failed to repair broken railings or a leak in the bathroom, resulting in you losing your balance or slipping and falling.

A nursing home accident might also happen due to neglect from the staff at the nursing home or adult care facility. For example, perhaps the nurse was helping you to the bathroom and left you to tend to another resident when the fall occurred. Alternatively, a staff member may have failed to provide timely meals resulting in lightheadedness that rendered you unable to keep your balance.

Other fall injuries may be caused by abuse from the nursing home staff. Willfully harming the patients physically or psychologically is not uncommon in nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and adult care homes. A staff member may engage in bullying, shoving, or kicking patients down on the floor or removing patients’ hands from their grip on a stabilizing surface.

Proving Elder Abuse in the Nursing Home

In demonstrating abuse, your lawyer will need to show that the accused party intentionally set out to hurt you when you fell. Their actions then resulted in your fractures, broken bones, or other injuries.

Proving Negligence in Your Fall and Fracture Case

Unfortunately, suffering a slip, trip, or fall does not automatically constitute a valid case. You must meet specific criteria to succeed in a claim. The primary consideration in your lawsuit will be whether or not the at-fault party was negligent or intentional in their harmful actions.

In illustrating any negligence, your attorney must show that the at-fault party owed a duty of care to you. This means that they had a responsibility to act with reasonable care.

After that, your lawyer must prove that:

  • They shirked their responsibility to provide that care.
  • Their lack of care resulted in your injury.
  • You suffered damages as a result.

Supporting Claims of Premises Liability that Led to Your Fall

In a premises liability case, negligence also means one of three things:

  • The owner or staff was aware of the dangerous conditions on the property and failed to correct them.
  • The owner or staff should have known about the dangerous conditions and taken reasonable measures to prevent harm to the elder patients.
  • The property owner’s or staff’s actions directly led to the accident or injury.
