Dedicated Oak Lawn Home Abuse Lawyers in Chicago

Aggressive Lawyers for Patients Suffering Nursing Home Abuse in Oak Lawn, IL

Oak Lawn, Illinois is home to the Advocate Christ Medical Center, as well as a downtown area (95th Street between Tulley and 55th Court) that is currently undergoing massive redevelopment. Many Oak Lawn residents support elderly loved ones whose conditions require them to reside in nursing homes. Few moments in life can be more distressing than the moment you realize that your loved one may be suffering abuse at the hands of the very institution that you entrusted with their care. Instead of allowing the anger, shock, and confusion to become overwhelming, it is best to let your anger empower you to seek legal counsel – and fight back.

Malman Law Makes It Happen

At Malman Law, our batting average in personal injury cases is about .950 – that is, 95 percent of our clients win their claims. That doesn’t mean 95 out of 100 clients – it is more like 14,250 out of 20,000 clients. When you add it all up, we have recovered over $200 million in personal injury compensation so far, including quite a few multi-million dollar settlements.

Your Claim Will Probably Be Resolved Out of Court

Historically, well over 90 percent of our winning clients have received private settlements, without ever having to step inside of a courtroom. We can make no guarantees, of course, since a lot depends on the stubbornness level of the opposing party. But we can tell you that our trial lawyers know how to win. So if it comes to a courtroom battle, we are ready.

Client Testimonial

Nursing home abuse and neglect Steve and Kelly were great! The entire process moved much faster than we thought it would. We received a nice size settlement. I would highly recommend Malman Law! – Susan, January 16, 2015

Our Other Areas of Practice

Our attorneys can handle just about any type of personal injury claim, including:

Frequently Asked Questions

No, it simply changes form. The Illinois Wrongful Death Act allows the personal representative of the victim’s probate estate to file a wrongful death claim. Damages go to the surviving spouse and the next of kin, and they can be quite substantial.

Perhaps. Normally, a nursing home abuse claim is based on personal injury or wrongful death law, not contract law. Therefore, no contractual relationship is required between the nursing home and the resident. Nevertheless, under certain circumstances it makes sense to pursue a contract claim, and for that a written agreement is usually necessary.

If you suspect medication abuse:

  • Obtain a copy of the victim’s medical records. The victim has a right to these, as does anyone acting on his/her behalf.
  • Take up the issue with the administrator of the nursing home.
  • Contact a nursing home abuse lawyer.

A nursing home is not allowed to use “chemical restraints” by medicating a patient simply for the convenience of the staff.

Although there are many different kinds of nursing home abuse, the following types of claims come up over and over again:

  • Negligent supervision
  • Negligent care
  • Assault and battery
  • Negligent maintenance of nursing home facilities
  • Negligent hiring of staff

Put simply, abuse is active while neglect is passive. An example of abuse might be restraining the patient for convenience rather than medical need; while an example of neglect might be failing to change bedsheets for an extended length of time. Either type of claim is treated the same by courts.

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
