Many families depend upon nursing homes and assisted living facilities to care for our aging relatives when they can no longer live and function independently. Due to the level of trust that our society places on these facilities, they are heavily regulated and held to an extremely high standard of care.
If you believe that a loved one has been mistreated at a nursing home or assisted living facility resulting in a serious injury, you should contact our Chicago nursing home lawyer to discuss your legal rights and options.
Signs of nursing home abuse and nursing home neglect can include, but are not limited to, bed sores, pressure sores, fall-down injuries, physical abuse, sexual abuse, and failure to adequately administer needed care or treatment. These types of abuse and neglect can result in serious and life-changing injuries, and in severe cases, even death. When this happens, the families of victims may be able to pursue a legal claim against the nursing home or care facility to recover damages. It is important to hire an experienced attorney who is capable of investigating and identifying all potential theories of liability in order to obtain a maximum possible recovery. If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of nursing home abuse or neglect, you should immediately contact the Eames Law Group, Ltd. to discuss your rights and all potential theories to recover compensation.
