Nursing Home Negligence Can Cause Serious Injuries
Have you been notified that one of your family members sustained an injury in a nursing home? If you have, was the staff of the nursing home truthful with you as to how the patient was injured? The attorneys at Worby Groner Edelman have had many cases in which the nursing home staff tried to "cover up" the facts surrounding the accident. In one case, a patient sustained a fractured hip by falling out of her bed. The staff at the nursing home said nothing to the family. Because the patient was elderly and could not express herself easily, the family did not find out about the fracture until several days later when someone realized that the patient's hip area was red and swollen. The family came to us and a law suit was commenced. It was quickly learned that the patient had fallen on the floor when being transferred from the bed to a wheel chair. Once the nursing home facility knew that we had learned the truth, the law suit was settled for a substantial sum. If you or a loved one has been injured through the actions of a nursing home, call us at Worby Groner Edelman where we will fight for you! Remember, there is never a fee unless we are successful!
