Nursing home head injuries can happen for a number of reasons. They can occur due to physical injuries caused by abuse or by bedrail injuries or slip and fall accidents. Unfortunately, when an elderly patient hits their head while falling, it can lead to serious and permanent injuries. In some cases, head injuries can be life-threatening, especially if the patient is not taken for a full evaluation immediately.
If it family member in a nursing home has suffered a head injury due to a fall, you deserve answers. If negligence led to the injury, you may have a right to seek compensation to help pay for your family member’s care, support and a move to a new facility.
