Dedicated Edgewater Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Chicago

Skilled Lawyers in Edgewater, Fighting For Your Family

From Devon Avenue to Foster Avenue, and from Ravenswood Avenue to the shores of Lake Michigan, Edgewater is never far from – well, the edge of the water! Lincoln Park is never far away either. Among Edgewater’s 50,000 plus residents, over 6,000 qualify as senior citizens, some of whom reside in the nursing homes that dot the general vicinity. Virtually no one relishes the prospect of placing their elderly loved one in a nursing home; sometimes, however, there is no other choice. When that happens, you are trusting the nursing home with the care, well-being, and even the life of your loved one. It is an atrocity when the institution betrays both you and your loved one by committing or allowing nursing home abuse.

Distinguishing Abuse from Unavoidable Health Problems

Of course, health problems are common among the elderly, and the harm that has come to your loved one may or may not be the result of nursing home abuse. You are likely to need the assistance of an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer to detect the presence of abuse and to tie it to specific acts or omissions by the nursing home.

Unsurpassed Experience

In over two decades of practicing personal injury law, we have won compensation for over 20,000 personal injury clients – enough people to populate a small town. Our clients have walked away with a grand total of over $200,000,000 (and counting), including quite a number of multimillion dollar judgements. Historically, 95 percent of our clients have received compensation through our efforts.

Frequently Asked Questions

State and federal law have codified the rights of nursing home residents, and they are too numerous to list here. However, some of the most important rights are listed below.

  • The right to dignity and respect
  • The right to refuse medical treatment
  • The right to see their own physician
  • The right to manage their own finances or choose someone else to do so on their behalf
  • The right to live as independently as their health permits

The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act governs the conduct of Illinois nursing homes. Additionally, federal nursing home regulations apply to nursing homes that accept Medicare or Medicaid, and federal law controls if there is a conflict with state regulations. Violation of a nursing home regulation can be used to raise a presumption of negligence.

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 nursing home abuse lawyer

Nursing home neglect is a form of abuse, and neglect is the most common consequence of understaffing. Bedsores, for example, are a classic sign of neglect. Understaffing is most common in private, for-profit nursing homes, some of which are more interested in profit than in patient well-being.

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
