When you place your loved one in a nursing home, you are placing a tremendous amount of trust in the employees of that facility. Your loved one’s happiness, health and even life are to a great extent dependent on the quality of care provided by the nursing home. A breach of this trust through nursing home abuse is an atrocity that screams out for justice. Our caring and committed Cicero Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys will fight for justice.
Tying the harm your loved one suffered to specific acts of abuse (or negligent failure to act) is the job of a legal professional. Nursing homes are highly regulated at both the state and federal level, and a violation of a nursing home regulation can lay the groundwork for a successful compensation claim. It can also stop the abuse dead in its tracks.
We don’t think that justice should be available only to wealthy people – and at Malman Law it isn’t. It doesn’t matter to us whether you are wealthy or penniless – what matters is the strength of your claim. We won’t send you a bill until your money actually arrives. And if we fail to win compensation for you, you will never receive a bill. We either win together – or we lose together.

The negligence per se principle allows you to establish a presumption of negligence (prima facie evidence of negligence) by proving that the defendant violated a safety statute or regulation. The defendant can try to counter this presumption of negligence with evidence that the violation wasn’t serious enough to amount to negligence. Once you prove negligence, you still have to prove that the negligence actually caused the injury or harm.
95 is a magic number here at Malman Law, and there is a good reason for that. Two good reasons, as a matter of fact.
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
