As more Americans are living longer, more families are turning to nursing homes and assisted living facilities to care for their loved ones. This increase in demand for long-term care has coincided with an increase of reported nursing home abuse and neglect cases.

One of the most disturbing aspects of nursing home negligence is that it takes advantage of some of society's most vulnerable members. We understand abuse and neglect is sometimes malevolent. However, more often, nursing home abuse results from poor hiring, lack of training, poor supervision, and understaffing.
Illinois Lawyers Protect Victims of Nursing Home Abuse or Neglect
Our law firm's attorneys have significant experience helping families who are dealing with elder abuse. One of the common misconceptions is that nursing home abuse only involves physical abuse. We are prepared to handle a wide variety of nursing home negligence cases, including those involving:
- Physical abuse
- Sexual assault
- Mental or psychological abuse
- Malnutrition or dehydration
- Inadequate employee background checks
- Inappropriate use of physical restraints
- Failure to respond to changing medical conditions
- Improper medication or medication mismanagement
Many elderly victims fail to report abuse out of humiliation, fear, or shame. However, there are signs that should arouse suspicion, including malnutrition or dehydration, decubitus ulcers (commonly known as bedsores or pressure sores), wandering away, and sudden changes in behavior. We are dedicated to helping ensure our clients get the Respect, Response, and Results® they deserve. We are tough negotiators and trial attorneys who are prepared to fight for maximum compensation for you and your loved one.
