Woman sues nursing home for injuries after slip-and-fall accident

When we go to visit family members at a specialized care facility, we expect that the nursing home or rehab center will be properly maintained. Few Rhode Island residents anticipate injuries because of a wet floor or other hazardous conditions at a medical facility. That is just what happened, though, to an Illinois woman who was visiting her mother in a nursing home. Now, the victim is seeking compensation for premises liability in connection with her incident.

Reports show that the victim slipped on a puddle of soapy water that had not been cleaned off the floor of the nursing home in Cook County. She filed in the case in local court in early March in connection with the June 2015 accident. She argues that the nursing home should have been more responsible in warning her about the soapy water on the floor. Now, the woman is seeking more than $50,000 in damages for the nursing home's role in her injuries.

The fact is that slip-and-fall accidents can lead to serious problems for victims. Medical conditions including brain damage, broken bones, sprained or torn ligaments, and a host of other issues can result from simple failure to clean up a floor. The same is true for victims who slip on ice or snow that has not been properly cleared.

Victims who suffer from this type of negligent property owner deserve financial compensation for their injuries, lost income, pain and suffering, and other civil claims. A qualified attorney can help these victims and their families get the compensation they deserve to keep moving forward. With the help of the legal system, these customers and clients can regain their former life and start feeling better!
