Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Lawyer
As veteran Illinois personal injury lawyers who've seen it all since we opened our doors in 1994, we at Steven J. Malman & Associates find nursing home abuse and neglect cases to be some of the most outrageous matters we handle. Nursing homes are supposed to be safe havens, places where seniors who lack facilities for self-care go for treatment and compassion.
Unfortunately, some get just the opposite. Alas, abuse, neglect, and other forms of mistreatment abound in America's nursing homes. The good news is that you don't have to stand for it. If you or a relative has experienced nursing home abuse or neglect in Chicago, we can help you fight back.
Under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, nursing home residents are granted wide ranging rights. You do NOT need to prove medical malpractice. All a resident must prove is that the facility did not provide proper treatment or that the treatment provided was unreasonable or dangerous.
