At Colucci, Colucci & Marcus, P.C., we specialize in helping the most helpless across Massachusetts. In an industry of unknowns and of situations that cannot necessarily be anticipated, one fact stands out: Most elderly nursing home residents are frail, which means a slip, trip, or fall can be catastrophically injurious and even fatal. Depend on our nursing home injury lawyer to provide the representation you need if an elderly loved one has been injured due to an accident or fall in a nursing home.
Despite known dangers, vital information, and established protocols to prevent falls and fractures, carelessness and negligence on the part of nursing home staff continue to lead to falls and bone fractures. Even worse, fractures can lead to infections, pneumonia, and other serious complications.
If your loved one has suffered injuries in a Boston nursing home, contact the experienced attorneys at our law firm. We feel we “wear the right hat” when helping the elderly following accidents and injuries, and we are committed both to the rights of our clients and to improving the lives of the elderly across our state:
We have handled many dozens of nursing home injury cases in our decades of combined legal experience.
Our team of lawyers includes an attorney who is a member of the board of directors of the Massachusetts chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and a member of the advisory board for Massachusetts General Prime Care. He serves in numerous other leadership roles for area hospitals, elder services, and services of the mentally incapacitated.
Unlike many Boston law firms, we don’t turn down nursing home cases based on the injured person’s age on the basis that the value of the claim will consequently be reduced. We believe all nursing home residents deserve competent and tender care and, when needed, effective legal help.
Basic mobility can be dangerous for the elderly. Those who work with elderly and incapacitated persons quickly learn that another’s body is a heavy and cumbersome thing to move. When that person is frail, then transport difficulty creates a real danger to the person being moved.
Due to the challenges of moving elderly people, it is essential that nursing home staff members take reasonable care and use the proper equipment when residents need to be:
When elderly people fall or are dropped, the resulting injuries can be so severe that they are life-changing and even life-ending. We believe that caring and competent service should be provided to the elderly every time they require it. When negligence leads to avoidable injuries, we are here to provide families with the legal help they need. For more information, please contact our office. We have advocated aggressively for the rights of nursing home residents since 1995.
Our attorneys work on a contingency fee basis in all areas related to personal injury law. That means you pay nothing if we don’t win compensation for you. We are available for day, evening, and weekend appointments as well.
