Nursing Home Fall Lawsuit Attorneys in South Jersey

Camden County & Burlington County Nursing Home Injury Lawyers Help Clients Get Compensated When Nursing Homes Fail To Prevent Falls in New Jersey


According to the Centers for Disease Control, one out of every four people over the age of 65 suffer a fall. In addition, falling once, doubles your chances of falling again. One out of five falls involving a person over the age of 65 causes a serious injury such as a bone fracture or head injury. Over 800,000 persons over the age of 65 are hospitalized each year for injuries suffered in a fall; most injuries are either a head injury or hip fracture. When you or your family place your trust in the staff and management of a nursing home, that includes a trust that the facility won’t be negligent in its care to allow you or a loved one to suffer a fall. Unfortunately, too many nursing home residents suffer from neglect by nursing homes that result in falls causing significant, life-threatening injuries.

The dedicated nursing home fall attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. stand ready to help those who have suffered a fall caused by the negligence of a nursing home. We have a proven track record of helping clients in Mount Laurel, Cherry Hill, Pennsauken, Marlton, Camden, and throughout New Jersey recover compensation after they’ve been injured due to someone else’s negligence.

Nursing Home Falls Are Common Causes of Injuries to the Elderly

Many nursing home residents suffer from conditions that constitute risk factors for falling, including:

Although some falls do not result in injury, the ones that do can cause significant injury that can even be fatal to an elderly person in a nursing home, such as:

Nursing home falls can be caused by the negligence of the facility management and staff. Staff and management may fail to correct conditions in the facility that constitute slipping or tripping hazards, particularly for residents with mobility issues. Or nursing homes may have inadequate procedures to monitor residents for falls or do not respond promptly when they do fall. Or nursing home staff, through neglect or abuse, may fail to respond to or ignore requests for assistance from residents with mobility issues — those residents may then try to move unassisted, risking a possible fall. Or, finally, the nursing home staff may be negligent in helping a resident move around and cause a fall.

How Andres & Berger, P.C. Can Help You File a Nursing Home Fall Injury Lawsuit

If you or a loved one were injured in a fall in a nursing home, the compassionate nursing home fall attorneys of Andres & Berger, P.C. will take on the burdens of investigating and pursuing your claim so that you can focus on recovering from your injury.

We’ll collect all the evidence from your fall and document your medical expenses to ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve. We’ll confirm whether the nursing home was adequately staffed, whether you were assessed for fall risk, or whether your fall prevention plan (if any) was followed.

Our attorneys will advocate for fair and full compensation for your claim. If necessary, we stand prepared to take your case to trial to fight to get you the recovery you need and deserve for your injuries.

FAQ: I fell by myself in the nursing home, do I have a claim against the nursing home?

Nursing homes and their staff owe a duty to ensure that their residents are protected from harm. When nursing homes fail to take steps to reduce the risk of residents suffering from a fall, they may be liable for negligence that was the cause of your or your loved ones fall. For example, a nursing home may fail to remove slipping or tripping hazards or may fail to respond to or may ignore requests for mobility assistance, leaving residents to risk a fall by trying to get around by themselves.

FAQ: What kind of compensation am I entitled to?

If you or your loved one’s nursing home fall was caused by the negligence of the nursing home and its staff, you may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses you or your loved one incurred in treating the injuries you suffered in your fall. You may also be entitled to recover compensation for the pain and suffering you incurred as a result of the injuries sustained in your fall.
