Montgomeryville Nursing Home Care Injuries
Dedicated Attorneys Fight to Defend the Rights of Nursing Home Residents Injured by Negligence, Neglect, or Abuse in Montgomeryville, PA
We rely on nursing homes and nursing care facilities to provide assistance, shelter, and care to our loved ones as they get older and can no longer live on their own or need greater assistance and care than family members can provide. Although the vast majority of nursing homes and facilities provide exemplary care to their residents and patients, nursing home care injuries do occur. Sometimes injuries happen due to accidents and negligence by nursing home facilities and their staff; nursing home residents and patients are also sometimes injured by the careless or intentional abuse or neglect of staff.
Regardless of how a nursing home care injury occurs, when we charge nursing home facilities with the duty to care for our loved ones and they fail in carrying out this duty and injure a beloved family member, the nursing home may be responsible to compensate the injured resident and their family for the damages caused by those injuries. If you or a loved one have suffered a nursing home care injury in Montgomeryville or elsewhere throughout Pennsylvania, contact the personal injury attorneys of Rubin, Glickman, Steinberg, & Gifford, P.C. today to learn more about your legal rights and options.
Examples of Nursing Home Care Injuries
Residents and patients of nursing homes face the risk of a wide variety of injuries. Sometimes nursing home patients or residents suffer injury due to an accident caused by the negligence of staff, such as by failing to properly move a patient or resident, or failing to provide help to a resident who needs mobility assistance. Injuries can also occur due to abuse and/or neglect from nursing home staff. Some common examples of nursing home care injuries include:
- Lacerations (cuts) and contusions (bruises)
- Broken bones, in particular head and hip fractures
- Bedsores (pressure ulcers)
- Soft tissue injuries, including sprains and tears of tendons, ligaments, and muscles
- Head and facial injuries
- Traumatic brain injury
- Anxiety and depression
- Cognitive impairments, including confusion, disorientation, agitation, or memory problems
Nursing home residents and patients are an especially vulnerable group. Due to advanced age or illness, they are especially susceptible to serious injuries even in incidents or accidents that might not injure or seriously injure a younger healthy adult.

Frequently Asked Questions about Nursing Home Care Injuries in Montgomeryville, PA
If you or a loved one have been injured in a nursing home, you may be entitled to compensation for damages such as the costs of medical treatment for your injuries, pain and suffering, lost enjoyment of life (arising from the inability to participate in activities you previously enjoyed) or loss of companionship to your spouse or loved ones.
Depending on the circumstances of your injuries, there may be several parties who bear some liability for your nursing home care injuries. Of course, the person or persons directly responsible for your injuries, such as a nursing home staffer who causes you injury due to abuse or neglect, can be held liable for your injuries. The nursing home facility itself may also be held liable for nursing home care injuries; the facility may be held vicariously liable for the negligence or reckless or intentional acts of its employees, or the facility may be held liable for its direct negligence in hiring, training, or retaining employees and staffers who cause injury to residents and patients. Finally, if a third party contractor is responsible for your injury, such as a contractor responsible for cleaning and maintenance or for food service, they may be held liable as well.
