Orland Park Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Helping Patients

verbal abuse in nursing home

The abuse of this trust, either through carelessness or intentional acts, often results in nothing less than outrage. In some cases it creates a great deal of confusion as well – since it can be difficult to determine whether the resident’s malady is indeed the result of abuse. Contact our Orland Park Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers to talk over your concerns.

Time to Call in the Professionals?

Over the years, Malman Law has served over 20,000 clients – equal to more than a quarter of the population of Orland Park. 95 percent of these clients have walked away victorious. All told, it adds up to over $200,000,000 in personal injury compensation – and counting. And better yet, since the great majority of our clients win out-of-court settlements, only about one in twenty have to go through a trial to win. .

We employ a team of investigators as well as a full-time Registered Nurse with over 30 years of experience to help us determine whether your loved one’s malady, whether physical or emotional, is indeed traceable to nursing home abuse. If it is, our Orland Park Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers are ready for action. Job one, of course, is to stop the abuse immediately. Job two is to aggressively seek fair compensation.


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!

Our Other Areas of Practice

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1) What are my main legal options if I have evidence of abuse?

You have four main options. Note that these options are not mutually exclusive  –  in fact, if circumstances warrant you can pursue all four at the same time.

  •     File an administrative complaint
  •     Seek an out-of-court settlement with the nursing home
  •     File a lawsuit for money damages
  •     Seek criminal charges by filing a criminal complaint with the prosecutor

2) Are there any regulations that apply to nursing homes in particular?

Yes, regulations have been enacted at both the state and the federal level. Illinois nursing home regulations  govern all nursing homes in Illinois, while federal nursing home regulations apply only to nursing homes that accept Medicare/Medicaid. Violation of a nursing home regulation can be used as evidence of negligence, but is not necessarily dispositive. It is very important you have knowledgeable and proven Orland Park Nursing Home Abuse Lawyerson your side.

3) What types of damages are available in a wrongful death lawsuit over nursing home abuse?

Under the Illinois Wrongful Death Act,  the court may award whatever damages are fair and just. These damages may include (but are not necessarily limited to):

  • Medical expenses
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Pain and suffering
  • Mental anguish, grief, loss of companionship, etc., by surviving relatives

4) Is there a valid claim if my mother injured herself due to the nursing home staff’s failure to supervise her?

Perhaps, if you can convince a court that the nursing home staff’s failure to supervise her constituted negligence. Failure to supervise would be more likely to constitute negligence if your mother’s injury was foreseeable in light of her condition, and if the nursing home failed to take appropriate steps to avoid a foreseeable accident.
