Since 1994, we have served over 20,000 personal injury clients. Many of these clients hail from Lawndale, whether North Lawndale or South Lawndale – particularly in the K-Town, 26th Street, and Piotrowski Park areas. Some of these clients have come to us with distressing stories of nursing home abuse that are absolutely infuriating. Contacting our compassionate Lawndale nursing home abuse lawyers is vital. America has a nursing home problem – about 30 percent of all nursing homes have been cited for serious abuse. One of the main reasons for this depressing statistic is understaffing. The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates that half of all nursing homes suffer from staff shortages. Often, the underlying motive for this shortage is profit, at least for private nursing homes.
If your loved one has become irritable or depressed, was it caused by nursing home abuse? What if your loved one fell and broke her hip? Are bedsores decisive evidence of abuse? At Malman Law, we can help you determine whether you have a claim, and if you do, we can help you trace the harm done to your loved one to misconduct by the nursing home.
Our response to a confirmed nursing home abuse claim is, quite frankly, outrage. We have seen it too many times to take it lightly. Instead, it makes us want to fight until justice has been served. Our Lawndale nursing home abuse lawyers past performance proves decisively that when we say “fight” – we mean “win.”
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
Following are a few of the kinds of personal injury cases that we handle. Keep in mind that this is an incomplete list.
If your loved one’s nursing home accepts Medicare or Medicaid, you can find its quality rating on the federal Medicare website. You can use the search function to find a particular nursing home, or all nursing homes in a particular location.
Call the Nursing Home Abuse Hotline (800-252-4343) maintained by the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH). In response to your complaint, it is up to the IDPH to decide whether or not to launch an investigation. The IDPH has the authority to fine, sanction, or even close a nursing home that violates either state or federal rules or regulations.
Depending on the circumstances, you may have four options, and if circumstances warrant you can pursue all four at the same time.
The following factors are critical.
You have no doubt heard that lawyers are expensive, and that is not entirely false. However, the way we’ve set up our fee structure means that it is essentially the defendant who pays your legal fees, not you. If our Lawndale nursing home abuse lawyers win compensation for you, our legal bill will come due once your money arrives. If we don’t win compensation for you, you will owe us a grand total of precisely $0.00.
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
