Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer - DeSalvo Injury Lawyers

Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer

For many kids, the most difficult thing they will ever do is put their loved one into a nursing home.

However, they do this with the trust that their loved one will be well-taken-care-of. This trust is not unwarranted. Nursing homes are premised upon the assumption that your loved one will receive better care in a facility then they would on their own. For many this is true, but unfortunately for some, it is not. When your loved one is victimized by the staff at a nursing home, you need a nursing home abuse attorney in Chicago to help you fight for your loved one's rights.

Your Loved One Has Rights

Any resident of a Medicare or Medicaid-certified nursing home has a number of rights and protections under both federal and state law. These rights should be explained in writing at the time someone is admitted to the nursing home and continue to be explained in a way said resident can understand throughout the term of their stay. Residents must own a copy of their rights in writing and acknowledge that they understand them. Yet, however standardized these regulations attempt to be there are still many cases of nursing home abuse and neglect on our nation's elderly.

Around 1.4 million Americans live in nursing homes, and as the population ages and baby boomers become elders this number is only expected to increase.

A congressional report conducted over a 2-year period found that nearly 1 in 3 nursing homes were cited for violations with the potential to cause harm and almost 10 percent had violations that caused actual harm or even death. Another survey found that up to 44 percent of nursing home residents reported having been abused at some point during their residency. These awful numbers have caught the attention of state legislatures, prompting anti-elder-abuse laws in all 50 states. However, sadly nursing home abuse continues to occur and often goes unreported.

Don't Go Through It Alone

If you suspect nursing home abuse, you don't have to go through it alone. This can be a confusing time. You entrusted the care of your loved one to the nursing home and their staff and they have let you down. It can be difficult to believe and may leave you in denial or search for answers that aren't there. When you are in this state of mind, it's best not to handle the case on your own.

You need the assistance of an experienced nursing home abuse attorney in Chicago so you don't make any mistakes that could cost you the compensation your loved one deserves.

With the help of an attorney, you can get the case settled, while still giving your loved one the attention he or she needs in this difficult time.

Count on Experience

Their expertise can be invaluable in determining the best course of action to take and what compensation to seek. They won't allow you to aim higher than you deserve, only to be disappointed by the final result.

A lawyer can keep your expectations grounded and help you move forward on the path to healing.
