If your parent flipped and fell at a nursing home resulting in a broken hip you can sue the facility for negligence. In order to prove this case your lawyer must show the facility had a duty to prevent injury, breached that duty, and harm resulted. Most slip and falls occur when a foreign substance is on the floor or there is something that otherwise impedes movement. You can also prove cases like this by showing that the person with the fractured hip was left unattended and should have been observed. A fractured hip is an extremely painful injury and one that is difficult to recover from. A nursing home abuse lawyer or personal injury lawyer can help you pursue the nursing home for negligence.
