Dedicated Calumet Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Chicago

Experienced Calumet City Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Defending Your Loved One

People with aging loved ones face a dilemma. Their loved ones require care that they cannot provide, yet they are reluctant to trust a stranger with the care of a cherished family member. Placing an elderly loved one in a nursing home is an act of trust. When that trust is betrayed through nursing home abuse, justice demands a response. Your response should be to call the caring and commited Calumet City Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers.

Seeking Help

Given the frequent health problems suffered by the elderly, one of the most difficult aspects of many potential nursing home abuse claims is the difficulty in establishing whether or not abuse took place at all. A skilled nursing home abuse lawyer can help you make this determination, and take decisive action once abuse is established.

Other Types of Personal Injury Claims We Handle

Our lawyers are used to handling a wide variety of personal injury claims, including:

Frequently Asked Questions

If the facility accepts Medicare/Medicaid, you can look up its rating on the federal Medicare website. This webpage includes a search function that indexes nursing homes by name and location. It lists the nursing home’s overall rating, the result of health inspections, and similar data.

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) maintains a Nursing Home Abuse Hotline (800-252-4343) for complaints. After receiving a complaint, the IDPH Bureau of Long-term Care might decide to commence an investigation. It can fine, sanction, or even shut down any nursing home found to have violated state or federal statutes and regulations.

The most common legal theories are based on:

  • Negligent supervision and care
  • Negligent hiring of employees
  • Negligent maintenance of facilities
  • Assault and battery by staff
  • Inadequate security (resulting in assault and battery by visitors or other patients, for example)

Depending on the circumstances, you may have four options. If circumstances warrant, you can pursue more than one of these options at the same time.

  • file an administrative complaint to stop the abuse
  • open negotiations with the nursing home or its insurer seeking settlement funds
  • file a civil lawsuit seeking damages
  • file a criminal complaint with the local prosecutor seeking an arrest

Nursing home abuse – especially passive neglect – is particularly likely in private, for-profit nursing homes. This is due to the company’s financial bottom line being more important to the administration than patient care. For example, to save money, the institution may be understaffed or the nursing home may have hired unqualified workers who were not subjected to expensive background checks.

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
