Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys in Chicago, Illinois

If your loved one has been rushed to an emergency room or has died while being cared for in a nursing home, you should ask questions about what happened. While some health problems are unavoidable as people get older, others may be signs of nursing home neglect or abuse.

At Dickler, Kahn, Slowikowski & Zavell, Ltd., our lawyers are experienced in handling civil cases involving personal injury and wrongful death. If you think your loved one may be a victim of neglect or abuse in a nursing home, we can offer a free initial consultation and help you determine whether you can pursue compensation for the harm your family has suffered.

What Is Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect?

Examples of injuries that may occur due to neglect or abuse in a nursing home include:

  • Bedsores caused by failure to properly turn and rotate an immobile resident
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Broken bones caused by inadequate supervision and failure to assist patients
  • Injuries caused by wandering or elopement
  • Injuries caused by over-medicating residents or providing the wrong medication
  • Injuries caused by failure to provide necessary prescription drugs or other forms of medical care
  • Infections or other health issues that occur due to unsanitary conditions
  • Physical, sexual, verbal, or emotional abuse
  • Financial exploitation
  • Falls

Cases of neglect can often be traced to understaffing. If a nursing home's staff is too overworked and stressed out to properly care for residents, it is the residents who may be injured or die as a result. Fortunately, a nursing home that did not provide an adequate level of care or otherwise allowed abuse or neglect to occur can be held responsible through our civil justice system.

A few of the recoveries we have obtained for our clients in cases involving nursing home negligence include:

  • $910,000 - pediatric nursing home claim
  • Policy limit for nursing home and wrongful death suit
  • $400,000 - nursing home claim
  • $375,000 - fall at nursing home
