It is never easy to place your loved one in a nursing home, but sometimes medical realities render that decision unavoidable. The shock and anger that wells up within you when you discover that your loved one is being abused by the very people to whom you entrusted his or her well-being is something that our New City nursing home abuse lawyers understand.
At Malman Law, we’re not playing around. In nearly a quarter of a century of practicing only personal injury law, we have represented over 20,000 clients and counting – and we always represent victims, never defendants. 95 percent of our clients walk away with compensation for their injuries, and 95 percent of our winning cases are resolved at the settlement table, not in court. Even if you don’t want to go to court, it is your ability to fight and win in court that provides you with your bargaining power in settlement negotiations. Let our New City nursing home abuse lawyers do the negotiating for you, because we have done it thousands of times before and we won’t fall for any of the other side’s tricks.
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
New City is an ironic name for a community area that includes Canaryville, one of Chicago’s oldest neighborhoods, and Back of the Yards, which has been around for well over 100 years. Some of our best clients hail from New City, including people who came to us after suspecting that their loved one was suffering from nursing home abuse.
Following are a few of the kinds of personal injury cases that we handle:
Both Illinois law and federal law list numerous rights enjoyed by nursing home residents. Below are only a few of them.
The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act is the state legislation that governs Illinois nursing homes. Additionally, federal nursing home regulations also apply if the nursing home accepts Medicare or Medicaid (most do). If state and federal regulations conflict, federal regulations are controlling. It is vital you discuss your case with experienced and proven New City nursing home abuse lawyers.
Take the following steps immediately.
You can sue the nursing home itself as well as individual administrators, personnel, nurses, doctors, nurse’s aides, and other health care providers. The nursing home is responsible for the misconduct of their employees, but not for the misconduct of a doctor. Nursing home employees are responsible only for their own misconduct. Contact our skilled and compassionate New City nursing home abuse lawyers to ask questions and talk about your situation.
You may have heard that lawyers charge hundreds of dollars an hour for their services. Well, some of them do, but that’s not how we do business here at Malman Law. All of our clients receive the benefit of our Zero Fee Guarantee – your fees will be zero unless we win compensation for you. If our New City nursing home abuse lawyers win, your bill won’t come due until your money arrives.
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
