Nursing Home Injury Attorneys in Missouri
When the people we trust to take care of our loved ones fail to live up that responsibility, either through negligence or abuse, it is important to hold those people accountable. Nursing home abuse and elder neglect occurs far too often in Missouri and around the United States and frequently results in serious – and sometimes fatal – injuries for nursing home residents. This abuse and neglect can take many forms, but in any case, it is important to provide our loved ones with the protection that they deserve.
At the law firm of Farrell & Martin, located in St. Charles County, our lawyers will provide dedicated representation for cases of nursing home abuse and neglect in the state of Missouri. The majority of nursing home falls and accidents can be prevented through proper supervision, safety equipment and staff training. When accidents occur that result in injury, the nursing home that allowed the acts to happen may be liable for compensating the victims of the abuse or neglect.

Common Causes of Nursing Home Injuries
Nursing home residents may suffer injuries in preventable accidents that can occur for a variety of reasons. These reasons include:
- Inadequate staffing
- Improper medical care, including untreated or unnoticed injuries
- Improper or insufficient safety equipment, such as bed rails, alarms and padding
- Bed sores
- Medication errors
- Unclean or dangerous conditions
- Resident abuse
Whenever any kind of injury occurs to a nursing home resident, the family members of that resident should be notified of the injury and proper medical treatment should be provided as soon as possible.
