Nursing Home Negligence Attorneys

Assisting Elderly Victims of Abuse, Neglect & Mistreatment

Nursing homes and assisted living facilities are intended to provide a safe, welcoming environment for elderly individuals who are no longer able to care for themselves. However, all too often these facilities fail to uphold a reasonable standard of care for residents. When elderly individuals are mistreated, abused, or neglected, the results can be devastating.

There are few things worse than discovering your elderly parent, grandparent, or loved one is the victim of negligence. However, if you even suspect that something is wrong, it is important that you act quickly in order to put an end to the abuse. Our nursing home negligence attorneys can help you take legal action against the liable parties to recover the compensation you are owed and help ensure that similar abuse does not occur again in the future.

If you are the victim of nursing home abuse, or you believe your loved one is a victim, contact our office as soon as possible. We serve clients throughout the state of Illinois.

Signs Of Nursing Home Negligence & Abuse

Unfortunately, many nursing home residents are unable or unwilling to speak out when abuse or neglect occurs. In fact, they may be unaware that what is happening is illegal. It is therefore crucial that you are able to recognize the signs of nursing home neglect/abuse so that you can act quickly at the first indication of a problem

Some of the most common signs of nursing home abuse and/or negligence include:

  • Dehydration/malnutrition
  • Sudden weight changes
  • Unexplained changes in behavior
  • Inexplicable injuries, such as cuts, bruises, or broken bones
  • Slip and falls
  • Bed sores
  • Medication errors, overmedication, or under-medication
  • Unusual changes in mood, including mood swings
  • Dirty/soiled bedding or clothing
  • Unclean facilities
  • Improper use of restraints
  • Changes to a will or estate plan
  • Unusual withdrawals from bank accounts
  • Injuries incurred during transportation

If you notice any of the above signs or any other indications that something is not right, reach out to an attorney right away. Woodruff Johnson & Evans can help you work quickly to determine if abuse/neglect has occurred and if so, how this led to your loved one’s injuries. We thoroughly investigate every case and often turn to industry experts to help us build a solid case on your behalf.
