Decisive Naperville Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers for Victims

Nursing home abuse is a despicable offense. Unfortunately, it happens far more often than many people realize. About 30 percent of U.S. nursing homes have been cited for serious offenses at some point or another. Of course, you might not be absolutely sure that any abuse has occurred, and you might be unsure how to confirm it. That is where we come in. We are proven Naperville Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers. We are here to help you and discuss your concerns with you.

The Malman Law Difference

You wouldn’t allow a general practitioner to perform open heart surgery on you, would you? And you probably wouldn’t trust an inexperienced heart specialist to perform the operation either. Likewise, you shouldn’t trust your loved one’s fate to an inexperienced lawyer, or to a lawyer who only dabbles in personal injury law from time to time. Our Naperville nursing home abuse lawyers have the experience you need,

Here at Malman Law, we have been in business for nearly a quarter of a century, and our practice has always been the same – seeking compensation for victims of personal injury. Since 1994, we have:

  • Served over 20,000 personal injury clients
  • Won 95 percent of our cases
  • Settled 95 percent of our winning cases out of court

In all likelihood, your case will be settled out of court after tough negotiations. If the other side is stubborn, however, we know how to win in court because we’ve done it many times before.

A Word from a Satisfied Client

Nursing home abuse and neglect

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!

More about Naperville, Illinois

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.

Types of Personal Injury Cases We Handle

Following is an incomplete list of the types of personal injury claims we typically handle.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) Are nursing homes required to issue written policies and procedures?

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.

2) Who can file a personal injury claim if my loved one dies from nursing home abuse?

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.

3) Can I claim punitive damages?

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.

4) What are my legal options if I have good evidence of nursing home abuse?

Depending on the facts, one or more of the following options may be available to you.

  • File an administrative complaint (this will not result in compensation)
  • Seek a private settlement with the nursing home
  • File a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit
  • File a criminal complaint with the district attorney’s office

You Don’t Pay Unless You Win

Here at Malman Law, we don’t rack up billable-hours. We win the vast majority of our cases because we simply refuse to lose, and if our Naperville nursing home abuse attorneys fail to win compensation for you, our total legal bill will be zero.
