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!

More About Oak Park, Illinois

Oak Park, Illinois is a village next to Chicago’s West Side. Austin Boulevard, North Avenue, Roosevelt Road, and Illinois 43 act as borders that separate Oak Park from Chicago, and from neighboring communities. Attractions such as the Oak Park Farmer’s Market bring many visitors from elsewhere in the metro area, including some of us from time to time.

The rest of the time we often have far more serious matters to attend to. One of these is helping people with loved ones who they suspect are suffering abuse at the nursing homes where they reside.

Our Other Areas of Practice

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

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) What are the most common types of nursing home abuse?

The most common forms of nursing home abuse are:

  • Physical (including over-medication to keep the resident immobile for the convenience of the staff)
  • Verbal
  • Emotional
  • Sexual
  • Financial
  • Neglect (consistent failure to perform any duty required for proper care, including supervision and security)

2) What are my legal options if I have evidence of nursing home abuse?

There are four basic legal pathways you can take. If circumstances warrant, you can pursue more than one of these options simultaneously.

  • File an administrative complaint with state authorities (hotline: 1-866-800-1409)
  • Seek a private settlement with the nursing home or its insurance company
  • File a nursing home abuse lawsuit
  • File a criminal complaint

It is important that you consider speaking with experienced and proven Oak Park Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers.

3) Which Illinois state agency supervises nursing homes?

The Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) supervises the roughly 1,200 nursing homes operating in the state of Illinois. The IDPH is responsible for:

  • Licensing
  • Annual inspections
  • “Spot” inspections
  • Assisting nursing homes in applying for federal Medicare/Medicaid reimbursement

4) How can I find the rating of my loved one’s nursing home?

You can view the nursing home’s rating on the Medicare website. You can search by name or by ZIP code. The ratings list the nursing home’s comprehensive ranking, inspection results, staffing levels, and other quality measurements.

5) Do nursing homes issue written policies and procedures that they are bound to comply with?

Yes, nursing homes are required to codify their policies and procedures; and nursing home residents and their designees have a legal right to read these policies and procedures. Violation by a nursing home of its own policy can be used as evidence in a nursing home abuse lawsuit.

Our Oak Park Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers understand and are experienced with nursing home laws.

Our Zero Fee Guarantee

We don’t like paying for nothing, and we don’t think you should have to either.
