    Hip Fracture Victim

    Schwartz Injury Law represented an elderly individual who fell and suffered a hip fracture at a Chicago nursing home. After a thorough investigation, our team was able to hold the nursing home accountable for its failure to institute appropriate fall precautions. This resulted in a $300,000 settlement for our client.

Common Types of Fractures in Illinois Nursing Homes

The overwhelming majority of fractures that occur in nursing homes are the result of a fall. Some of the most common injuries include:

  • Hip fractures
  • Pelvic fractures
  • Back or vertebrae fractures
  • Leg and thigh fractures
  • Hand and arm fractures
  • Ankle and foot fractures

Broken bones are particularly common among the elderly, who often suffer from degenerative diseases that greatly reduce the mineral density of the bone (such as osteoporosis). This problem is made worse when nursing homes are understaffed, do not have adequate fall prevention procedures in place, or, in the most egregious cases, have staff members who engage in physical or sexual abuse. Many of the fractures nursing home residents suffer are severe and life-threatening. Sadly, some patients are never able to recover following a fracture.
