National legislation addressing the legality of mandatory nursing home arbitration agreements is pending. If passed, the Fairness in Nursing Home Arbitration Act will effectively ban mandatory arbitration clauses included in admission contracts for long term care facilities, including nursing homes and assisted living facilities. While a nursing home lawyer in Chicago is your best resource to explain the current and proposed legislation, the highlights are as follows:

The Fairness in Nursing Home Arbitration Act will help:

  • Allow individuals to fight for their full legal rights with a nursing home lawyer in Chicago rather than being limited by arbitration.
  • Prevent patients and their families from being exploited by large corporations.
  • Enable individuals or their families to receive potentially larger settlements for nursing home abuse, negligence and wrongful death.

While it has become somewhat standard practice for long term care facilities to include mandatory nursing home arbitration agreements in admission forms, you do not have to sign them. Nursing home arbitration agreements are in the best interest of the parent corporation, and aim to keep their litigation costs down and settle disputes outside of court. To cover your interests, any legal documentation which you are required to sign prior to admitting yourself or a loved one to a long term care facility should be reviewed with a nursing home lawyer in Chicago.
