Dedicated Rockford Home Abuse Lawyers in Chicago

Determined Rockford Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Serving Patients and Families

Nursing home abuse is an outrage.  It is so shocking and heart-wrenching. Our experienced Rockford nursing home abuse lawyers can help you if you suspect a loved one has suffered from nursing home abuse or neglect. Most nursing home abuse cases proceed through three stages. (i) Determining whether abuse has in fact occurred (although in some cases this is obvious). (ii) Stopping the abuse immediately by any means necessary. (iii) Aggressively pursuing fair compensation for the abuse.

Your Choice of Counsel Matters

Even a lawyer fresh out of law school can accept a nursing home abuse case, and so can a lawyer who is experienced in other fields but only dabbles in personal injury law. At Malman Law, we offer something more. We are proven Rockford Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers.

  • Personal injury law (including nursing home abuse law) is the only type of law we practice.
  • Our clients win their cases 95 percent of the time.
  • Since 1994 we have served over 20,000 personal injury clients.
  • Our clients have walked away with a total of more than $200,000,000 in compensation.
  • Well over 90 percent of our clients receive private settlements, without ever having to appear at trial.

Nursing home abuse cases involve more than legal issues. Like medical malpractice cases, they often require the application of medical expertise to determine whether abuse has in fact occurred and, if so, what kind of abuse occurred. In response, we employ a full-time Registered Nurse with over 30 years of practice experience to help us investigate medical issues.

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

More About Rockford, Illinois

Rockford, Illinois , known in some quarters as the “Forest City,” sits along the Rock River. The town boasts numerous historical landmarks such as the Coronado Theater and Anderson Japanese Gardens. Some of our best clients hail from Rockford, including those who relate distressing stories of the abuse of their loved ones while living in nursing homes.

Our Other Areas of Practice

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Possibly. To win, you would have to prove that the nursing home was negligent, either due to something they did (e.g., providing a broken walker) or something they didn’t do (e.g., mop a wet floor).

Nursing home residents have the right to freedom from “chemical restraints” that are not administered for medical reasons. If you suspect the use of chemical restraints, you should:

  • obtain a copy of your loved one’s medical records,
  • speak with the nursing home staff, and
  • contact a nursing home abuse lawyer.

Our Rockford Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers can help you and stand by your side.

No, victory is not guaranteed – but it definitely improves your odds. Under Illinois law,  a regulatory violation is considered prima facie evidence of negligence. This shifts the burden of proof from you to the defendant, which is a definite advantage. Negligence alone is not enough – you must prove that the negligence actually caused the harm done to your loved one.

Yes – in fact, federal law guarantees nursing home residents this right. If your loved one is not mentally competent to make this decision, however, close relatives, a legal guardian or someone with Power of Attorney should make the decision on behalf of him or her.

Yes, unless the nursing home (or its insurance carrier) is so stubborn that it insists on going to court. In fact, most nursing home abuse claims are resolved through private settlement. If the opposing party insists on a courtroom battle, however, our experienced trial lawyers are more than ready.

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
