record setting awardWe are proud to announce that a team of our Illinois nursing home negligence attorneys recently secured a $1,011,864.50 award for a victim of nursing home negligence who fractured her hip during care. The verdict came after a Cook County jury heard the case and weighed the evidence presented by both sides.

The Chicago nursing home negligence case involved a senior female resident of a nursing home and rehabilitation center owned by Alden Poplar Creek Rehabilitation and Health Care, Inc. During her stay at the facility, she suffered a broken hip that could have and should have been prevented. When the nursing home could not agree on a settlement, the injury victim took her cause to Malman Law and to court.

This jury award is $169,062.50 higher than any Cook County nursing home negligence award dealing with a similar injury and similar consequences. The money will go toward the injury victim’s past medical costs, future medical costs, and out-of-pocket expenses. It will also compensate her for her significant pain and suffering.

Members of the legal team at Malman Law who assisted with the case included Robert Montgomery, Kelly Sabo Gaden, David Resis, and Kristen Koeller.

Nursing Home Negligence & Fractured Hips

Many people think that fracturing a hip, especially for a senior woman, is simply an unfortunate consequence of getting older. However, although broken hips are more common among elderly women than among other demographics, not all broken hips are “natural” occurrences. In fact, a significant number of hip fractures that take place in nursing homes should have and could have been prevented and were caused by negligence.

Here are just a few examples of hip fractures caused by negligence:

  • A resident falls and breaks a hip because he or she is not properly monitored.
  • A resident falls and breaks a hip because her care plan does not include safety items like bed rails, floor pads, or a walker.
  • A resident fractures a hip after falling during an improper lift by untrained or overstressed staff.
  • A resident fractures a hip due to physical abuse by a staff member or another resident.

If your senior loved one suffers a bone fracture while under the care of a nursing home or rehabilitation center, you may wish to speak to a Chicago nursing home negligence attorney about your case today.
