Chicago Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect Lawyer
Nursing Home Abuse Attorney in Illinois
We've seen it all since we opened our doors in 1994—as veteran Illinois personal injury attorneys, we've seen just about every case there is. At Steven J. Malman & Associates, we find nursing home abuse and neglect incidents to be some of the more upsetting cases we see—after all, nursing homes are supposed to be safe places where seniors and disabled people can go for compassionate and quality treatment and care. Sadly, that's not always the case.
Some nursing home residents get the exactly opposite. Abuse, neglect, and other forms of mistreatment are unfortunately a part of many of America's nursing homes. Thankfully, you don't have to stand for it. If you, a relative, or someone you know has experienced neglect or nursing home abuse in Chicago, we can help you fight for your rights.
Nursing home residents, under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, are granted a wide range of rights. For example, you do not need to prove that medical malpractice took place. All you have to prove is that the nursing home provided improper treatment or that the treatment that was provided was negligent, dangerous, or unreasonable.
