Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Chicago

Placing a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility can be a difficult decision. When you put your family member’s health and wellbeing into the hands of someone else, you expect that he or she will receive only the highest quality of care. Unfortunately, nursing home abuse does occur, and it happens more often than you may think. If you suspect that your loved one has been the victim of abuse, it’s important that you act quickly and decisively and that you do so with the support of an experienced nursing home abuse lawyer.

Protecting Our Elderly

Is your loved one complaining about the quality of care he or she receives? Does he or she often exhibit signs of dehydration, agitation, or depression? Are bed sores or bruises visible? Nursing home abuse can take many forms, including neglect and outright abuse (e.g., physical, mental, verbal, and sexual abuse). Although reporting the abuse to the proper authorities is always the first step, it’s not the only action that needs to be taken in order to protect your loved one and ensure that justice is served. At Freeman Tutaj, our Chicago nursing home abuse lawyers have secured settlements for victims of abuse and neglect that include compensation for:

  • Medical care for injuries or conditions related to the abuse
  • Cost of care (including recovery of past payments)
  • Psychological trauma caused by the abuse

Demand Justice

No one deserves to be the victim of abuse, least of all our elders. If you suspect that your family member is being mistreated, demand that justice be served. Schedule a free consultation with one of our reputable nursing home neglect attorneys and ensure that nursing home facilities that allow abuse pay for the harm they’ve caused.
