Nursing Home Unexplained Injury Lawyers

When people entrust their elders to the care of a nursing home, they do it because they believe the long-term care facility will provide better care than they can provide at home. When unexplained injuries occur; bruises and broken bones, for example, family members do not necessarily think it may be a sign of a larger problem. Negligence on the part of a nursing home, or abuse by a staff member or other resident, may be the cause. It is important to look for subtle signs of abuse or neglect when you visit your loved one in a nursing home.
