If you think your loved one may have suffered an elopement injury due to nursing home negligence, the attorneys at Jacobs & Jacobs, are here to help you explore your legal options.
When an elderly nursing home resident wanders away from the home, he or she can be exposed to a wide range of dangers. Wandering off can make a nursing home resident vulnerable to pedestrian traffic accidents, slip-and-fall accidents, exposure to the elements, dehydration and other risks.
Wandering-off injuries can occur for a number of reasons, including:
- Failure to monitor residents
- Failure to assess a resident’s likelihood of wandering off
- Failure to install or use alarms and other safety devices
- Failure to train employees
