Malman Law recently added two new attorneys to the Malman Law team, both with extensive experience dealing with Chicago nursing home abuse and neglect cases.

Matt Henry comes to Malman Law from a top nursing home firm in Chicago. He has spent his entire career protecting the rights of senior citizens by working on Chicago nursing home abuse and neglect cases. Mr. Henry will be the head of Malman Law’s Nursing Home division.

Also joining the Malman Law legal team is associate Sonia Kapoor, bringing several years of experience advocating for senior citizens who have been victims of nursing home neglect or abuse. Ms. Kapoor was trained at one of the biggest nursing home neglect and abuse firms in Chicagoland.

We are pleased to announce the addition of these two new attorneys and feel that their experience with Chicago nursing home neglect and abuse cases further sets Malman Law apart from other firms as uniquely qualified to meet our clients’ needs. We look forward to continuing to provide advice and counsel for Chicago nursing home neglect or abuse cases.

If you are wondering whether you might need to contact a Chicago nursing home abuse or neglect attorney, look for the following warning signs of nursing home abuse or neglect:

  1. Bedsores and/or Infections: Some individuals are forced to move to nursing homes because they are
    bedridden or are unable to get in and out of bed without assistance. In this case, it is imperative that staff members regularly shift patients to prevent bedsores and infections. If your loved one has bed
    sores or an infection that could have been prevented, they may be suffering from nursing home neglect.
  2. Personal Hygiene Issues: If
    your loved one’s personal hygiene appears has deteriorated or is a problem it is
    cause for concern. If a nursing home resident is often wearing dirty clothes or appears
    unwashed, it could be a warning sign. The same holds true if the towels or bed linens in the room
    have an odor or staining and appear not to have been cleaned in awhile.
  3. Depression: Severe depression or withdrawal after the normal adjustment time period is a warning sign that your loved one may not be getting the treatment they need.
  4. Bumps and Bruises: Evidence of physical abuse, such as bumps and bruises which are unexplained and unreported are cause for concern. If your loved one experiences a fall and sustains bruising, a report should be made. Additionally, if you ask your loved one about bumps or bruises and they cannot or will not tell you where they came from, that may be a sign of elderly nursing home abuse.
  5. Rapid Weight Loss or Gain: Significant changes in weight over a short period of time can signal different things including depression or improper medicine management. Issues with medicine dosing are especially concerning because while most likely not intentional, errors with over or under dosing can be fatal. Both may be signs of neglect in nursing homes.

If you are concerned that a loved one is not receiving adequate care, or is being abused or neglected, contact a Chicago nursing home abuse and neglect attorney immediately.
