Chicago Clogged Breathing Tubes Attorneys

Malman Law. Premier Personal Injury Attorneys

Injury Attorney Steven J. Malman

Experienced Chicago Nursing Home Clogged Breathing Tubes Attorneys

Many nursing home residents rely on breathing tubes to survive.

When those tubes become clogged, serious brain injuries or death can transpire in mere minutes. That is precisely why Chicago nursing homes are charged with the responsibility of safeguarding residents relying on breathing tubes.

Sadly, clogged breathing tubes are much more common in Illinois than they ought to be. Most cases arise in the nursing home context, and even though they often seem like “accidents,” the nursing homes are frequently at fault.

Most elderly nursing home residents are unable to stay healthy on their own.

That’s why they seek residence in an assisted living facility in the first place. The nursing homes have an extremely important duty, then, to help them stay well. When they breach that duty through carelessness, the victims and their families are entitled to justice, including financial compensation under Illinois law.

At Malman Law, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of nursing home residents in Illinois. We’ve worked with injured residents and their families for decades, and we know first hand how astoundingly negligent even the biggest and best nursing homes can be in their disregard for a resident’s wellbeing.

Why Do Some Seniors Require Breathing Tubes?

Nursing home residents require breathing tubes for various reasons. Some surgical procedures necessitate the installation of an endotracheal tube during recovery. The same is true for some particularly severe infections or conditions that threaten to close the windpipe (trachea). Others may depend on the tubes in order to achieve adequate respiration without accidentally choking.

Even routine conditions like bronchiolitis and pneumonia can lead to intubation. They are common in the treatment of certain cancers, brain conditions, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, and ALS. Many other medical procedures and conditions can indicate tracheotomy or intubation with a breathing tube as well. In any of these instances, the procedures and/or the tubes can become real lifelines for the residents.

Conditions Caused by Clogged Breathing Tubes

Clogged breathing tubes in nursing homes can lead to a wide range of illnesses and injuries, including:

This is not an exhaustive list. We all depend on an unobstructed airway and adequate oxygen to survive. Any interruption in that process can cause catastrophic or even fatal damage. Whatever the nature of the injuries in your situation, the experienced Chicago nursing home injury attorneys at Malman Law can help.
