Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Nursing home residents have a legal right to receive the care necessary to ensure they do not suffer preventable injury or deterioration in condition; to be free from abuse or neglect. When preventable injury occurs in a nursing home, the law holds the facility and its owners accountable for the harms and losses. This may include compensation to make up for the costs of medical and hospital care, and compensate for the pain, suffering and disability. Vinkler Law is a firm that has significant experience in holding accountable nursing homes for any abuse or neglect.
Nursing home abuse and neglect can take many forms ranging from negligence of nurses, CNA’s and therapists, to physical abuse and assault, by staff members or other residents. Our family members who require care in a nursing home are more susceptible to abuse or neglect because they are often unable to speak up for themselves. If an elder member of your family has experienced an injury, or preventable deterioration of their condition in a nursing home, you have a means to hold the nursing home accountable, and protect your family, and other residents from future harm. We can help.
While nursing home residents may be reluctant to come forward there are significant signs of abuse to look for:
- Broken bones
- Bed sores and bruises
- Head Injury
- Dehydration or malnutrition
- Change in mental status
