Nursing home abuse is an offense that nobody really likes talking about, because of its disturbing nature. The reality that none of us enjoys thinking about is that about 30 percent of nursing homes have been cited for serious forms of abuse. With 100,000 Illinois residents living in nursing homes, that is a lot of people at risk.
Since 1994 Malman Law has been practicing personal injury law, and only personal injury law. The results have been impressive.

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 attorneys can handle just about any type of personal injury claim, including:
There are many conditions that might point to nursing home abuse, although most of them are inconclusive by themselves. Some of the most common are:
You might be able to. Although the nursing home is not directly responsible for the acts of another resident, you might succeed by claiming that the nursing home negligently supervised their residents, leading to your loved one’s injuries. Contact the knowledgeable Tinley Park Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers at Malman Law to discuss your situation.
The general principle is that a nursing home may not restrict visitors without a good reason. A “good reason” includes:
A legal guardian may be entitled to decide on visitation on behalf of a resident who is unable to make his/her own decisions.
The Illinois Statute of Limitations sets the deadline for filing any kind of personal injury lawsuit. In nursing home abuse cases, however, determining the deadline can be a deceptively complex process. Speak with your lawyer about this matter.
The Medicare website includes a search function that allows you to search nursing homes by name and ZIP code. The resulting listing includes several indicators of quality for each nursing home, including inspection results.

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
