Dedicated Waukegan Home Abuse Lawyers in Chicago

Reputable Waukegan Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers Serving Clients and  Families

Although a majority of nursing homes are competent and caring, the cold fact is that about 30 percent of the nation’s nursing homes have been cited for serious instances of abuse at some point or another. Sometimes this is the result of greedy, profit-driven nursing home administrators, and sometimes it is the result of one rogue employee. Either way it is horrifying. Our Waukegan Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers are here to talk over your concerns if you suspect a nursing home abuse issue.

The Numbers Speak Volumes

At Malman Law, we understand that you pay for victory and justice, not smooth talk – and victory means cash in the bank. Accordingly, we have won 95 percent of our clients’ cases, and 95 percent of our victorious clients have walked away with private settlements rather than courtroom verdicts. It all adds up to over $200 million collected for over 20,000 clients over the past 25 years or so.


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

About Waukegan, Illinois

Waukegan, Illinois, situated in Lake County on the shores of Lake Michigan, has much to offer residents and visitors alike, from the Scoop Unplugged summer cruising festival to exciting evenings at the Genesee Theatre. Life is not so easy, however, for at least some of the city’s nursing home residents, or for families with loved ones residing in out-of-town nursing homes.

Our Other Areas of Practice

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

Frequently Asked Questions

Understaffing can result in a myriad of problems. Most, but not all, of these problems are related to nursing home neglect rather than active abuse. For-profit nursing homes are most likely to be understaffed due to a desire to maximize profits.

Abuse comes in many different varieties:

  • Physical abuse such as assault or improper use of restraints
  • Psychological abuse such as threats, humiliation, and verbal abuse
  • Sexual abuse
  • Financial abuse
  • Neglect (failing to perform any duty required to properly care for the resident)

Our Waukegan Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers are very experienced in nursing home abuse and neglect cases.  Call us if you have questions.

The problem is worse than any of us would like to acknowledge. According to the National Center on Elder Abuse, nearly 50 percent of all nursing home residents say they have been abused at one point or another. And 19 out of 20 say they have either been victims of neglect or have seen another nursing home resident suffer neglect.

The following types of damages are commonly awarded, depending on the facts of each individual case:

  • Medical expenses prior to death
  • Funeral and burial expenses
  • Pain and suffering for the victim’s final illness or condition
  • Psychological suffering by the victim’s loved ones

Damages go to the spouse, next of kin, and the victim’s estate.

Yes, but only under the following conditions:

  • Failure to pay rent
  • Danger to other residents
  • Medical needs that the nursing home is unable to meet
  • Sufficient improvement in the resident’s medical condition

A nursing home cannot arbitrarily evict a resident or seize upon a minor indiscretion as an excuse to evict.

Don’t Let Them Get Away With It; Aggressive Waukegan Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys Are Here To Help

You are always better off pursuing your claim as soon as you realize you might have one, rather than waiting until later. Be mindful that evidence tends to deteriorate over time, and the statute of limitations deadline is always looming.

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
