Illinois Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

Chicago Elder Abuse Attorneys

According to the 2010 U.S. Census, more than 40 million American citizens are aged 65 or older. Increasing age often brings serious health problems and it can be difficult for families to provide an elderly family member with the medical and personal care required. In such situations, the decision is made to place the loved one in a Chicago nursing home. However, this decision can leave the loved one at risk of becoming a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect.

A National Problem

Nursing home abuse and neglect is tragically common in America. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, a survey of older Americans in 2000 showed that 44 percent of long-term nursing facility residents had faced some form of abuse or neglect. Furthermore, elderly people who have been neglected or abused are three times more likely to die prematurely.

Our elder abuse attorneys here at Strom & Associates can help you identify signs of nursing home neglect or abuse, and then take steps to pursue nursing home liability on your loved one’s behalf.

Signs of Nursing Home Neglect

While you may not want to make assumptions or false allegations, common nursing home injuries may be a warning that your loved one is the victim of neglect or abuse. Therefore, it is important to stay alert to the following signs:

  • Increased bruising
  • Disorientation or depression
  • Unexplained fractures or other injuries
  • Pressure sores
  • Weight loss

It is true that elderly people can be more susceptible to injury due to their increasingly frail state but it is not normal for them to always be sporting a bruise or change from an outgoing active person to one who is withdrawn. If your loved one shows signs of neglect and abuse, our nursing home abuse attorneys can conduct an investigation to determine the cause and take appropriate action against the negligent parties.

Choices for Residents and Families

Nursing homes and rehabilitation facilities are legally responsible to provide a caring and safe environment for your loved one. If you suspect that your loved one has been abused or neglected, contact our nursing home neglect lawyers here at Strom & Associates at (312) 609-0400 for a free consultation today.

Nursing Home Testimonials

There is so much to say about Kevin. I trusted him from the very first conversation. He was very empathetic about the injury my mom received while in a nursing home. Kevin came out to the nursing home a couple days after I called him and it was a weekend , that made me feel good knowing he would be accessible when needed. Every time I reached out he responded quickly, even on some questions that were not specific to my mom’s case. After he spoke to my mom he went right to work. My mom had faith that he was the best attorney for her case. I have to say when I found out that he took part in the law that allow families to install cameras in their love ones rooms I was 1000 percent confident in him and he delivered. I am very Pleased with the outcome of my mom’s case and for sure I will be using Kevin again. He is truly the Subject Matter Expert! I recommend Kevin. Again Thanks Kevin for everything.
