Reputable Evanston Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Helping Victims

Some of these clients come to us with stories that are, quite frankly, disturbing. Among all of the types of personal injury claims we handle, nursing home abuse claims are the ones that most arouse our zeal for justice. Our Evanston Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers are committed to treating your case with as much commitment as we would if it were one of our loved ones who was suffering abuse.

All That Matters is What You Can Prove

In the legal world, “the truth” adds up to whatever you can provide with evidence that is admissible in court. When a personal injury claimant fails to win the compensation he is entitled to, it often boils down to his inability to locate admissible evidence proving a fact that he knows to be true. That is precisely why experienced and professional legal assistance is so critical.

A Winning Team

At Malman Law, we have been fighting and winning personal injury claims, including numerous nursing home abuse claims, for 23 years and counting. During that time we have secured compensation for over 20,000 clients – equal to about a fifth of the population of Evanston.

95 percent of our clients walk out of our office with compensation for their injuries. In fact, over $200,000,000 has been deposited into our clients’ bank accounts through our efforts. We won’t waste time with empty superlatives, because the numbers truly tell the story.

A Word from a Satisfied Client

Steve and Kelly were great! The entire process moved much faster than we thought it would. We received a nice size settlement.

I would highly recommend Malman Law!

More About Evanston, IL

Evanston, Illinois, home of Northwestern University, is a vibrant North Shore community within easy reach of downtown Chicago. During 23 years of practicing personal injury law, we have represented a great number of clients who call Evanston home, especially in the neighborhoods of Fireman’s Park, Oakton Historic District, and University Neighbors.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Following are a few of the kinds of cases that we handle. Keep in mind that this is an incomplete list.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) Do nursing homes issue written procedures?

Yes they do – in fact they are required to do so by law. Residents have the right to view them and to designate a representative (such as a relative or a trusted friend) to view them. You might have a valid claim if the nursing home harmed your loved one by violating its own procedures.

2) What should I do if my loved one died from nursing home abuse?

When the probate court appoints a personal representative for your loved one’s probate estate (usually the executor named in your loved one’s will), you can contact the personal representative and have him or her file a wrongful death lawsuit under Illinois wrongful death law. The personal representative is typically the executor named in the deceased victim’s will. Otherwise, he or she is typically a close relative or friend that is appointed by the court.

3) Are punitive damages available for nursing home abuse claims?

In Illinois, punitive damages are awarded, if at all, in addition to compensatory damages. It generally takes outrageous conduct on the part of the defendant to convince a court to award punitive damages. For nursing home abuse claims, punitive damages are strictly limited, and are entirely unavailable for wrongful death claims.

4) What are the most common types of nursing home abuse?

The five most common types of nursing home abuse are:

  • Physical abuse, including inappropriate medication for the purpose of restraint or punishment
  • Emotional abuse, including verbal abuse and humiliation
  • Any form of sexual abuse
  • Psychological abuse, such as isolation
  • Financial abuse and exploitation
  • Neglect

Our Zero Fee Guarantee

Many nursing home abuse victims simply cannot afford to pay the billable-hours that lawyers often charge for representation. At Malman Law we understand this. We charge no upfront fees – our bill will come due only after your compensation check has already been delivered by the defendant. And if you receive no compensation, you won’t be receiving a bill at all.
