It is always hard to leave your family members in the care of others. It is important to do your research before choosing a nursing home for your loved one. Interviewing current residents and their families as well as staff can give you a glimpse of the care given there. The same goes for in-home caregivers.

After your family member is in a nursing home or in-home care situation be on the lookout for strange behavior, new or frequent injuries and anything else that seems odd. At the first sign something may be off contact a Chicago nursing home attorney.

When choosing a nursing home lawyer consider the following services. A great Chicago lawyer will offer the following benefits:

  • Free no obligation Consultation – You should be able to meet with your nursing home lawyer once, for free before you commit to working with them.
  • No Fee Guarantee – If your attorney does not obtain a monetary award for your case you should not owe them a legal fee.
  • njury Assessment – Your attorney should have the ability to have any injuries involved with the claim looked at by a doctor.
  • Always Available – A lawyer offering themselves to you at all hours day or night is really making themselves available to you and your needs.
