Illinois Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
It is an extremely hard thing to do when it comes time to put a loved one in a nursing home. When we do have to put a loved one in a nursing home, we hope that those caring for them are treating them well. However, Nursing Home Abuse is an unfortunate reality, and our nursing home lawyers fight for those who can’t fight for themselves. We bring those who have harmed the elderly to justice and stop the abuse of others in the process.
Identifying Neglect & Abuse
Nursing home neglect and abuse can come in a variety of ways. Common complaints against facilities are:
- Bed Sores
