Determined Attorneys Serving Nursing Home Negligence Victims in Lawndale

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.

You Might Not Be Sure Whether You Have a Claim

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.

We Make It Happen For Our Clients Every Day

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.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

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

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) How can I find out if my loved one’s nursing home has a good reputation?

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.

2) How do I file an administrative complaint against a nursing home? What is the effect of such a complaint?

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.

3) What are my legal options if I suspect abuse?

Depending on the circumstances, you may have four options, and if circumstances warrant you can pursue all four at the same time.

  • File an administrative complaint (this may trigger an investigation that can uncover  evidence).
  • Gather evidence and demand compensation directly from the nursing home.
  • Gather evidence and file a nursing home abuse lawsuit for damages.
  • File a criminal complaint.

4) What factors determine how much money I should ask for?

The following factors are critical.

  • The seriousness of the harm done
  • The difficulty of reversing the harm
  • Whether the harm done is permanent
  • How much suffering was endured by the victim

There’s No Such Thing as Being Too Broke to Afford Us

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.
