Suspicious or Unexplained Injuries


The lawyers at Solomon & Relihan have successfully litigated cases involving a wide range of injuries that, following investigation, turned out to be the result of negligence or abuse on the part of nursing home staff, such as:

  • Unexplained and significant weight loss due to malnutrition
  • Lethargy and fainting due to dehydration
  • Bruises from assault by staff members or other residents
  • Aspiration pneumonia due to inhalation of food particles, more common in elderly people and people with dysphagia
  • Broken bones suffered because of improper use of restraints or from falls because staff failed to assist a resident with walking
  • Burns from failure to supervise a patient when smoking or from improper medical treatment
  • Injuries the resident suffered when he or she wandered off the property without supervision
  • Urinary tract infections or sexually transmitted diseases resulting from sexual abuse
  • Death from medication errors or untreated medical conditions, if staff failed to contact a doctor
