New Video FAQ: Why are elderly people more susceptible to injuries?
In a new video, New York City personal injury attorney John Blyth of Hach & Rose, LLP discusses reasons why elderly people are at a higher risk of sustaining injuries.
Reduced strength and reflexes combined with weakened bones means that an older person is more likely to fall down, and at an increased risk of suffering a serious injury if they do.
When nursing homes fail to take these amplified dangers into account, their patients may be hurt in completely preventable accidents. If your loved one sustained an injury while in the care of a nursing home, call the nursing home negligence lawyers of Hach & Rose, LLP at (212) 779-0057 to discuss the situation with an attorney.
