Naperville, Illinois, straddling DuPage and Will counties, is widely recognized as one of the wealthiest and safest communities in the United States, as well as one of the best places to live. The Naperville Riverwalk, in particular, renders the city eminently liveable. Life is not necessarily so rosy, however, for some of Naperville’s nursing home residents.
Following is an incomplete list of the types of personal injury claims we typically handle.
Yes they are, and failure to do so is a violation of the law. Nursing home residents are entitled to demand to see them or to designate a third party, such as a relative, to view them. The violation of one of these policies can support a nursing home abuse lawsuit if a resident is harmed by the violation. Our Naperville Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys are very familiar with the laws that govern nursing homes.
If your loved one died from nursing home abuse, the personal representative of your loved one’s probate estate may file a wrongful death claim under Illinois wrongful death law. The personal representative is appointed by the probate court, and is typically the estate executor named in your loved one’s last will and testament.
In Illinois, punitive damages are awarded only for particularly outrageous conduct. Unlike most personal injury claims, punitive damages in nursing home abuse cases are limited to costs and attorney’s fees. You cannot seek punitive damages in a wrongful death nursing home abuse lawsuit. To discuss these matter please contact Naperville Nursing home abuse lawyers at Malman Law.

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
