Nursing Home Abuse

Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Defending Our Client's Rights in Chicago

The decision to place a loved one in a nursing home can be difficult for many families. When a loved one is placed into the care of a home, it is assumed that they will be taken care of and you trust the staff to provide your family member with quality care. When a family member's health deteriorates to the point that they require round-the-clock attention, families must place a tremendous amount of trust in nursing homes and their operators to provide the appropriate care, comfort and kindness that their residents deserve.

When it is revealed that a nursing home resident has been neglected or suffered elder abuse at the hands of the care-giving staff or nursing home employees, family members may rightly feel betrayed and even guilty for what has happened to their loved one. Injuries resulting from nurse home abuse are not only physical, but mental as well. Talk to a Chicago personal injury lawyer if your loved one has suffered any type of injury.

Common types of nursing home abuse and neglect include:

  • Physical assault
  • Sexual abuse
  • Verbal abuse
  • Malnutrition
  • Bed sores
  • Emotional abuse
  • Withholding of medications
