Nursing Home Neglect and fall injuries

Placing a loved one or elderly parent in a nursing home in Massachusetts is often a difficult decision, made with the expectation that they will receive quality care and attention. Unfortunately, instances of elder neglect are not uncommon, leading to fall accidents and pressure ulcers. Incidents like these can lead to serious injuries. Fall-related injuries often lead to hip fractures and traumatic brain injuries, which can tragically result in death.

Often these types of incidents are preventable and only occur due to the neglect of the Nursing Home. Examples of Nursing Home neglect include, failures in developing an adequate plan of care and resident safety plan, failing to perform a fall risk assessment or implement adequate interventions for an elderly resident with mobility restrictions, cognitive impairments or poor balance.

Common interventions for high risk elderly residents include assistance with walking, mobility aids, bed rails, bed alarms, and toilet assistance.

Too often, these care plans and interventions are either lacking or poorly implemented, leading to preventable injuries. We specialize in Nursing Home neglect and fall injuries, and are committed to holding negligent facilities accountable for their actions.  We investigate every aspect of your case to establish neglect and liability. We aim to secure the compensation your family deserves including medical expenses, emotional suffering, wrongful death, and other losses your family has endured due to the carelessness or negligence of a nursing home.

If you or a loved one has suffered from neglect or fall injuries in a nursing home in Massachusetts, contact us today for a free consultation.

Dog Bites and Dog Attacks

Man’s best friend can sometimes turn into a source of physical and emotional pain when a dog bite occurs. We specialize in handling dog bite and dog attack personal injury cases, and Massachusetts’ strict liability law,  M.G.L. c. 140, s. 155, which holds the dog owner or keeper liable for injuries even if the dog has never shown signs of aggression before.

Strict Liability in Massachusetts: Understanding strict liability is crucial for any dog bite case. In Massachusetts, the law holds dog owners and ‘keepers’ strictly liable for injuries caused by their dogs, unless the victim was trespassing, teasing, or provoking the animal. There are also circumstances when a landlord may be liable under a negligence theory as well.

We are committed to investigating the circumstances of the dog bite incident, collecting evidence, and establishing the owner’s liability, aiming to recover full compensation for your medical expenses, emotional trauma, and other losses you may have incurred.

If you’ve been injured by a dog bite or dog attack in Massachussets reach out to us for a free consultation. We are your trusted legal experts in dog bite injuries and dedicated to securing the justice and compensation you deserve.

Dangers of Marble, Granite, and Stone Slabs

In the excitement of home renovation, you may not expect a simple shopping trip to turn into a life-altering experience. Yet, this is precisely what can happen when businesses negligently fail to secure heavy materials like marble and granite slabs in their showrooms. As a leading personal injury attorney in Boston, MA, we handle cases that involve such grievous negligence and can help you seek the justice you deserve.

Countertop businesses often underestimate the risks associated with the display and storage of heavy, potentially dangerous materials. For example rows of heavy marble slabs weighing up to or over 1000 pounds, which are often inadequately secured, with no signs warning of potential dangers or employees guiding the customers through the precarious environment. Their negligence can result in serious, even catastrophic injuries for customers who are not warned or protected adequately.

If you or a loved one have suffered an injury in a similar situation, it’s crucial to know that you have legal options. My firm specializes in cases like these, where negligence on the part of business owners and employees causes customers to suffer injuries that could have been easily avoided with proper safety measures.

Don’t let a business’s negligence dictate the quality of your life. Contact us today for a free consultation, and let us fight for the justice and compensation you deserve.
