Attorneys for Injuries Caused by Neglect in Nursing Facilities in Cook County

The decision to place an elderly or ill family member in a nursing home or assisted living facility is one that is extremely serious and intensely personal. Caregivers and loved ones may spend months visiting and comparing different centers and selecting the one that best suits the needs of the person needing care. If this describes your family, you reasonably expect that your loved one will be treated with dignity, respect, and quality care from qualified, trained staff members. Unfortunately, the reality for many nursing home patients does not always match their expectations.

Every year, thousands of the most vulnerable members of our society suffer injuries due to mistreatment or neglect in nursing homes and assisted living centers. If your loved one has been injured while living in a nursing home, our experienced attorneys are ready and willing to help you seek justice.

Alarming Rates of Nursing Home Negligence

Did you know that a recent study found that more than 40 percent of nursing home residents report incidents of abuse and nearly 95 percent have witnessed neglect in such facilities? Over the last few decades, nursing homes and extended care facilities have become more driven by profit than ever before. As the industry becomes increasingly corporate, the focus in many nursing homes and assisted living centers has shifted from quality patient care toward cutting costs and reducing expenses. In many facilities, this means fewer and lower-paid staff members who are not qualified to provide the care that patients deserve. As a result, more patients than ever are forced to suffer from:

Many nursing home residents have moderate to severe health concerns, which means that an incident that might seem minor to a healthy person could have serious implications for someone whose health is already compromised. For example, an elderly or ill resident who falls from his or her bed could easily break a bone—an injury from which the resident might never fully recover.
