Nursing Home Slip and Fall Accidents
Charleston Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Families trust that nursing home staff and facilities will provide compassionate and proper care for their loved ones. However, when unsafe conditions are allowed to exist or nursing home staff neglect those under their care, slip and fall accidents may be the result. A fall can result in permanent damage and in severe cases, may even lead to death. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, slip and fall accidents suffered by those 65 and older are one of the leading cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI).
If you believe that your accident was the result of nursing home abuse, neglect, or negligence, you may be able to seek monetary compensation for your damages. At Traywick Law Offices, we possess substantial experience helping victims fight nursing home abuse and have recovered millions of dollars for clients in personal injury cases. Our Charleston nursing home abuse attorney can provide you with the compassionate care you need to get through this difficult time.
Factors which can lead to a nursing home fall include:
- Broken or missing walking equipment
- Environmental hazards such as slippery floors
- Medical abuse leading to injury
- Failure to provide adequate supervision

Who Can Be Held Responsible?
Nursing home facilities have a duty of care to provide residents with a safe and hazard-free environment; when this duty is ignored, facility staff can be held accountable for their actions. This legal liability is not just limited to one party. Responsible parties can include workers, nurses, employees, or even building managers who played a role in the events leading up to an accident. Our legal team can help you to investigate your claim, leaving no stone unturned in the pursuit of justice.
We can help you to recover damages including:
- Physical pain that you have endured
- Mental suffering and emotional damage
- Initial medical bills such as hospitalization
- Ongoing costs such as rehabilitation or therapy
