Bridgeport Nursing Home Abuse

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Effective Bridgeport Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Fighting For Your Family

If you suspect that your loved one may be a victim of nursing home abuse, job one is to make sure the abuse is halted immediately. After that, it becomes important to transfer your loved one to another facility should that become necessary, and to seek compensation for the damage that has already been done. Don’t let an abusive nursing home get away with abusing its patients.

Preparing Your Claim

Contacting administrative authorities may succeed in getting the abuse halted quickly. It will not, however, result in compensation for the abuse your loved one has already suffered. To make that happen, you are going to need to collect evidence, admissible in court, that can establish every element of your nursing home under the “preponderance of evidence” standard.

At Malman Law, the Numbers Speak for Themselves

Your loved one is entitled to full compensation for the abuse he or she suffered, and your claim might be worth more than you think. Compensation, of course, means cash – not persuasive arguments, not groundbreaking legal precedents. At Malman Law  we understand this and we deliver.

  • We have served over 20,000 clients, 95 percent of whom have won their claims
  • Our clients have won over $200 million through our efforts
  • 95 percent of our winning clients never see the inside of a courtroom – instead, their cases are settled out of court.

Other elderly Bridgeport natives have been forced to leave the community to reside in nursing homes in other parts of Greater Chicago.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) How is the value of a nursing home abuse claim calculated?

The practical value of a nursing home claim (how much you are likely to actually receive) is based on several factors, including:

  • the extent of the harm done
  • the measures that will have to be taken to reverse the harm
  • the extent to which the harm done is permanent
  • the amount of pain and suffering caused

2) My loved one is mentally incapable of prosecuting a nursing home abuse claim. Can I file a lawsuit on his behalf?

You can file a nursing home abuse lawsuit on your loved one’s behalf if:

  • Your loved one granted you durable power of attorney before he/she became mentally incompetent, or
  • A court appointed you as your loved one’s legal guardian.

3) Can I sue the nursing home even if my loved one has no written contract with them?

Yes, you can, because a nursing home abuse claim is based on basic human rights, not contractual arrangements. Your loved one doesn’t need a contract to enjoy the right to be free from abuse.

4) Are Illinois nursing homes liable for the acts of their employees?

Yes. Employees are considered agents of their employers – meaning that employers are almost always liable for wrongful acts or omissions committed by their on-duty employees. This is an important advantage, since a nursing home employee might lack the financial means to pay damages for a successful nursing home abuse claim. Having knowledgeable and experienced Bridgeport Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys on your side will help answer your questions and guide you through the process.
