Nursing Home Abuse

When you entrust your elderly or disabled loved one to a nursing home, you want to be confident they receive the attention, comfort, and care they deserve. When a nursing home breaks that trust, we are here to help. We understand that because you were not present to witness the abuse or neglect—and in many cases your loved one is unable to advocate for themselves—you’re feeling angry and powerless. We represent victims who have suffered preventable falls, improper medical care and nutrition, as well as cases of serious injury or death.

Your loved one’s legal rights

In Illinois, the Nursing Home Care Act protects nursing home residents from neglect or abuse. When a loved one in a nursing home suffers a fall, a bedsore, malnutrition, dehydration, unexplained fractures or bruises, or another injury, the facility may be held liable for its neglect. A nursing home abuse lawsuit can compensate you for medical bills as a result of an injury, future medical expenses, loss of a normal life, punitive damages, and the pain and suffering resulting from the abuse or neglect.

Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse

  • Bedsore cases
  • Physical abuse cases
