Providing Legal Help to Victims of Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse
Having a loved one in a nursing home should bring peace of mind. You place your trust in the facility and you expect your loved one to be well cared for. Unfortunately, nursing home neglect and elder abuse are common in Illinois.
Due to rising reports of elder abuse and nursing home neglect, the Illinois legislature enacted a statute, The Nursing Home Care Act, to give certain rights to residents of nursing homes and long term care facilities.
The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act statute along with medical malpractice and negligence claims can form the foundation of a legal action. Depending on the nature of your experience, you may have the right to recover monetary damages resulting from elder abuse and nursing home neglect.
Here at Kavathas and Castanes, we have handled a number of nursing home abuse and neglect cases. We will begin by analyzing your case and providing you with advice on how best to move forward and get the compensation you deserve.
