As people age in Chicago and surrounding areas of Illinois, they – along with their supporting family members – often decide that nursing home care is the best way to aid their health and wellbeing moving forward.
And while many nursing homes provide superior medical care, as well as love and compassion to residents, some nursing homes and those who work within them miss the mark terribly. In the saddest of cases, nursing home residents are abused or neglected, leading to injuries and decline in health. If you believe that your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse in Illinois, our law firm can help you to file a lawsuit to seek damages and raise awareness.
There are four primary types of nursing home and elder abuse that a nursing home resident may be the victim of. All types can have negative effects on a nursing home resident’s health, and all are illegal. These include:
Nursing home abuse is horrific, violates the duty of care owed to nursing home patients in Chicago, and can even be considered medical malpractice as nursing homes are medical facilities. When nursing home abuse causes harm to your loved one, they have the right to file a civil action against the nursing home for all damages suffered. The nursing home employee responsible may face both civil and criminal charges as a result.
