Nursing Home Injuries, Abuse, and Negligence
Families struggle every day with the need to place elderly and vulnerable loved ones into the care of nursing homes. Nursing home residents have a legal right to receive the care necessary and not suffer preventable injury or deterioration in their medical condition.
If you suspect that your loved one has suffered neglect or abuse at the hands of a care provider, it’s time to speak out. We can help you identify the signs of abuse, take legal action and see that those responsible are held accountable. By saying something today, you protect your loved ones and can help prevent future instances of abuse or neglect.
We offer zealous representation for people seeking damages resulting from any type of injury or wrongful death caused by a nursing home, care facility or home health care negligence, including:
- Falls, transport, transfer and wheelchair injuries;
- Bedsores, skin ulcers and infections;
- Dehydration and malnutrition;
- Medication errors;
- Injuries from assault by staff or other residents;
- Injuries resulting from wandering off grounds.
We routinely work with individuals and family members throughout Central Illinois in cases involving nursing home abuse and neglect.
