If you entrusted a nursing home with your loved one’s care, it is inevitably distressing when you suspect that the nursing home may have betrayed your trust by abusing your loved one. Indeed, you may be confused. After all, health problems are common among the elderly, and you may not be certain whether or not abuse has actually occurred. Our Maywood Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys can help you with that.

Steve and Kelly were great! The entire process moved much faster than we thought it would. We received a nice size settlement. I would highly recommend Malman Law! – Susan January 16, 2015
For a village its size, Maywood, Illinois can boast a surprising density of top-tier medical institutions, including the Loyola University Medical Center and the Hines Veterans Hospital. For those with loved ones needing round-the-clock nursing care, Greater Chicago offers hundreds of nursing homes. Although most are well-run, not all of them provide residents with the level of care that they deserve.
Following are a few of the kinds of cases that we handle. Keep in mind that this is only a partial list.
Negligence per se is negligence that is established simply by the violation of a safety statute or regulation. In Illinois, however, proving that the nursing home violated a safety rule or regulation doesn’t automatically add up to negligence.

Our knowledgeable Maywood nursing home abuse attorneys can discuss your case with you.
At the state level, the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act applies, while the federal Nursing Home Reform Act also applies if the institution accepts Medicare or Medicaid. Proving the violation of a rule or regulation is one of the best ways to prove a nursing home abuse claim. Contact
Depending on the circumstances, the following types of damages might be awarded:

Although we win 95 percent of our cases, we don’t bill our clients until their compensation actually arrives. Since our fees are calculated as a percentage of the compensation recovered, and since any percentage of zero is zero, we don’t charge any fees at all unless our Maywood Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys win compensation for you. We won’t pay for nothing, and we don’t think you should have to either.
2 years ago I was involved in a trucking accident involving a 14-wheeler truck that nearly disabled me for life. Steve fought to make sure that I received the most possible compensation for my injuries. I was about to take the insurance company’s lowball offer, but decided to call Steve first – it was the best decision I’ve made yet
