The kind of personal injury claim that angers us the most is nursing home abuse. Anger can be an empowering emotion, however, if it stimulates us into taking action to help our client fight back. And that is exactly how we let our anger affect us and our proven Harvey Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers at Malman Law.
All nursing homes are subject to a complex web of state regulations. Nursing homes that accept Medicaid/Medicare are further subject to a second set of federal regulations. Our nursing home abuse attorneys possess an intimate familiarity with these regulations, and many of our successful nursing home abuse cases have rested on violation of these regulations.

Naturally, we cannot guarantee you any specific results. We can, however, guarantee aggressive representation by a law firm with one of the best track records in the industry.
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! – Susan January 16, 2015
Harvey, Illinois is home to quite a number of our current and former personal injury clients from the neighborhoods of Ashland and Greenview Manor. Inevitably, our clients are not having their best day at the time they contact us. Indeed, some of their stories are genuinely heartbreaking, and we never really get used to hearing them.
Following are a few of the kinds of cases that we handle. Keep in mind that this is only a partial list.
Understaffing – a practice that is rampant among for-profit nursing homes – inevitably leads to neglect, and neglect is a form of nursing home abuse. Bedsores are a common telltale sign of neglect, as are certain other conditions. Understaffing can also lead to injury through negligent supervision.
An assisted living facility is more appropriate for seniors who are partially disabled but who do not require daily nursing care. The facility provides assistance with basic life activities such as bathing and dressing. Nursing homes provide health care services and must employ nurses.
Residents of nursing homes enjoy many rights that are codified under state and federal law, including:
The foregoing is a small sample of the many rights that nursing home residents enjoy. It is important that you contact established and knowledgeable Harvey Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers.
Nursing home abuse claimants have up to four legal avenues available to them, depending on the circumstances.
As long as you have a strong claim, you don’t need a penny to retain us, because we don’t charge any upfront fees. Instead, our legal fees are deducted as a percentage of the compensation we win for you. Although we win about 95 percent of our cases, in the event that we fail to win compensation, you won’t owe us a dime.
2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
