Common Causes Of Injuries Among Seniors In Assisted-Living Environments
The risk of injury in a nursing home, assisted-living facility or retirement community can be high. Common causes of injuries to retired seniors and the limited-mobility elderly include:
- Slip-and-fall and trip-and-fall accidents
- Medication errors, including missed doses and overdoses
- Accidents when transferring individuals between a bed and wheelchair
- Bedsores resulting from a failure to move patients confined to bed
These are some of the most common causes of injuries for which compensation may be available. An experienced attorney can determine whether specific accidents warrant a claim.
