Nursing Home Falls and Other Injuries

Was Your Loved One's Injury Preventable?

Unfortunately, some nursing homes are run with poorly trained staff and inattentive supervisors. All too often, these facilities provide substandard care to one of our most vulnerable populations - the elderly. However, nursing home residents are protected by the Ohio Nursing Home Resident's Bill of Rights. This law guarantees residents a clean, safe environment free of abuse, and many other rights as well.

At the law office of Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A., our Cleveland nursing home fall lawyers hold nursing homes and nursing home staff accountable for injuries suffered by your loved one due to abuse or neglect, including falls and fractures. Our attorneys have over 45 years of cumulative experience pursuing justice on behalf of victims of nursing home neglect and their families.

Nursing Home Injury

Seriously troubling accidents, including wrongful death can result when basic standards of care are not met. For instance:

  • Was it clear that the resident had prior falls but action to help prevent future falls was not taken?
  • Was a medication for a patient that is known to increase the risk of falling administered to a patient without appropriate supervisory measures taken?
  • Were alarms ignored or not used by overworked staff? Did a patient who had trouble walking or getting around receive help?
  • How did the nursing home staff treat the resident after the accident? Was appropriate care provided? How long did it take the nursing home to obtain medical treatment for the patient?

Client Reviews
Without question, the attorneys at Rubin Guttman & Associates, L.P.A. did an exemplary job in settling my claim with the manufacturer of the prescription medication that led to my bladder cancer. It was clearly a long-shot that unexpectedly came through with a surprisingly large settlement. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone in need of legal services. William H.

I had occasion to use Rubin Guttman's services, in connection with obtaining coverage from a well-known life insurance company, that ended with a completely satisfactory outcome for me. I cannot rave enough about the professionalism and quality of the service which I received from Rubin. They were as good or better as any of the major law firms NITA whom I have had previous experience. Jerry Rothchild
