Chicago Assisted living residents Attorney

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Reliable Chicago Assisted Living Injury Lawyer

Assisted living residents deserve a safe living environment, and they are entitled to one under the law.

Sadly, injuries are all too common in these facilities throughout Chicagoland and all of Illinois. At Malman Law, we have worked with countless residents during the last twenty years, and we have seen first-hand the astounding instances of carelessness, abuse, and neglect that occur with some frequency in even the most highly regarded Illinois assisted living facilities.

As a matter of fact, the facilities in Illinois are governed by the “Assisted Living and Shared Housing Act”. This law places specific obligations and limitations on their operation.

These accidents almost always happen because of the facilities’ negligence. There is no excuse for that. The law demands care and responsibility on the part of these facilities and the professionals they employ. Our law firm will hold them to that standard.

Common Injuries In Assisted Living Facilities

Because of the wide range of medical conditions that lead elderly Americans to assisted or skilled nursing facilities, we’ve seen a number of unusual and rare injuries arise among their residents over the years.

There are, however, specific injuries that stand out as especially common. These include:

Of course, these aren’t the only injuries in assisted living facilities. It is important to understand that no two accidents are just alike, and even if the nature of your injury is unusual, you may still be entitled to relief under the law.

Assisted Living and Skilled Nursing Facilities Are Responsible For Accidents Too.

That’s because these institutions accept a very serious responsibility when they open their doors to Chicago’s sick and elderly, and the law expects them to do everything they can to keep those people healthy and secure.

Any instance of carelessness, irresponsibility, or inaction — as well as any pharmaceutical or medical mistake — may subject the facility and its professionals to substantial financial liability.

Many of the injuries sustained in these facilities look like accidents at first glance. Please know, though, that even when no one intended for an accident to happen, the facilities and their employees are often legally liable for the damages.

In Illinois, assisted living facilities have a duty to monitor for dangerous conditions that might lead to an injury. They must also quickly and adequately respond to hazards or signs of distress as they arise.
