Falls & Fractures
Marshalltown Nursing Home Fracture Lawyers
It is easy for young or healthy people to take a simple fall for granted and simply “walk it off”. For the elderly and the disabled that is not the case as a fall can result in fractures or other catastrophic injuries such as a broken hip. When proper care and attention is exercised, a fall of this nature should not occur in a nursing home or assisted living center.
At Slater & Norris, P.L.C., in Des Moines, we take abuse and neglect in nursing homes seriously and fight aggressively to pursue compensation for residents who are injured in falling accidents. We have obtained significant settlements and verdicts for our clients throughout central Iowa and bring more than 40 years of combined experience to these cases.

Falls and Fractures are Preventable
When proper procedures are followed by nursing staff who pay proper attention to their residents, falls and resulting bruises and fractures are almost always preventable. We pursue full compensation in claims involving injuries such as:
- Severe bruising
- Broken bones
- Head injuries
- Wrongful death
We go to the mat for our clients and will not settle for anything less than the full compensation your loved one deserves for the damages they have suffered. We thoroughly investigate these cases and fight to make sure nursing homes and their employees are held accountable for nursing home neglect.
