Chicago, IL Nursing Home Wrongful Care Attorney
When elderly persons move into nursing facilities, they anticipate prudent, compassionate, and proactive treatment. Regrettably, statistics reveal that numerous facilities provide inadequate, or at times, wrongful care.
The personal injury attorneys at Malman Law have tirelessly fought against outrageous nursing home neglect and abuse for over 15 years. Furthermore, we have dealt with issues ranging from accidents to neglect.
We adopt a methodical, client-centered, and time proven process to probe allegations, develop structured arguments, and leverage our expertise to produce results.
The issue of inappropriate or wrongful care is dependent on the resident’s specific needs. A number of patients need dietary supplements, regular re-positioning, medications, and other unique services. Such patients can suffer fatally if the facility does not provide for these needs.
Conversely, a number of actions could constitute nursing home neglect irrespective of a resident’s underlying conditions or history. These actions include:
- Failure to offer nutritious meals
- Disregarding a resident’s concerns or complaints
- Mistreatment or misdiagnosis that could amount to malpractice
Inappropriate or wrongful care can set off a chain of events that could possibly result in death or serious injury. A good example is a case where a facility ignores a resident’s complaints of a bedsore prompting surgery to rectify a problem linked to sepsis. If the patient dies in such a case, a wrongful care lawyer will argue that the lack of proper care resulted in the patient’s death.
A case involving a nursing home injury demands methodical investigation. For this reason, numerous victims residing in the Northern Illinois region turn to Malman Law for quality and reliable services.
