SENIORS MAY BE DUE COMPENSATION FOR THEIR ACCIDENTS AND INJURIES

As senior individuals age, they become more vulnerable and susceptible to accidents and injuries. Senior citizens are more prone to accidents and injuries as they get older. Their hearing, vision and coordination begin to decline, in addition, the elderly, reflexes and reaction times begin to decline and slow down. All of these factors lead to an increase in injuries among the elderly and senior citizens. Consequently, with an increase in injuries, seniors experience an increase in medical costs and expenses. Some of the costs incurred from senior injuries in Utah include nursing home care, expensive medical equipment, intensive rehabilitation, home repair and modification, physical therapy and pain medication. Elderly individuals injured due to an accident or a slip and fall might be eligible for assistance or financial compensation for the additional costs incurred.

Elderly individuals are slower to recover from injuries. In many occasions, seniors who have experienced a serious injury from an accident may never fully recover. Slip and fall accidents are the most common accidents experienced among senior citizens and slipping and falling accidents among seniors result in almost a quarter millions broken hips yearly in the United States. These accidents are life-altering for seniors. Senior individuals injured may be entitled to compensation or settlements. These settlements can help seniors as they recover and rehabilitate from their injuries as well as help them by providing special care to assist them with their daily activities and living; including affording them the opportunity to remain in their home or cover the cost of relocating to an assisting living community.
