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.
At Malman Law, we understand that you pay for victory and justice, not smooth talk – and victory means cash in the bank.

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.

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
