Dedicated Dolton Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Chicago

Knowledgeable Dolton Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Helping Victims

Placing your loved one in a nursing home can be a painful and frightening experience. Most nursing homes are conscientious and do their best to take good care of their residents. However, the harsh truth is that no nursing home can absolutely guarantee that your loved one will not suffer abuse at the hands of a careless or even malevolent staff member. If the unthinkable happens you need experienced and compassionate Dolton Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys by your side.

Nursing Home Staff Shortages

The National Center on Elder Abuse estimates than nearly 50 percent of all nursing homes suffer from staff shortages – a primary driver of nursing home abuse. Regardless of the root cause of the abuse, it must be stopped immediately. And after it is stopped, your loved one is entitled to full compensation. Professional assistance is practically a necessity if you want to that to happen.

An Unsurpassed Track Record

A lot can happen in over two decades practicing personal injury law, and many good things have happened at Malman Law.

  • Our clients have walked away with a staggering $200,000,000 in total

  • 95 percent of our winning clients receive private settlements, not trial verdicts

One of Our Clients Speaks Out

“If anyone has a problem and is in need of help call Malman Law. At Malman Law you are not just a client, you are part of the family.” – Donyell G.

Frequently Asked Questions

Nursing home residents enjoy a multitude of legal rights.

  • The right to refuse medical treatment
  • The right to be free from chemical restraints as a means of discipline or staff convenience
  • The right to social contact (freedom from involuntary seclusion)
  • The right to receive a copy of medical records
  • The right to private communications (staff cannot read residents’ emails, for example)

If you suspect that your loved one is being improperly medicated, take the following steps:

  • Demand a copy of your loved one’s medical records
  • Speak with the nursing home administration
  • Contact a Dolton nursing home abuse lawyer

If you are the personal representative of your loved one’s probate estate, you may be eligible to file a wrongful death claim under Illinois wrongful death law, The personal representative is typically the executor named in the deceased victim’s will.  It can also be someone appointed by the court (typically a close relative) in the event that no one was named in the will. Wrongful death recoveries can be substantial.

In Illinois, punitive damages are available in addition to normal compensatory damages, but only in cases of outrageously wrongful conduct. In nursing home abuse cases, they are limited to costs and attorney’s fees. Punitive damages are not available in wrongful death cases based on nursing home abuse, although compensatory damages are readily available.

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
