Tragically, nursing home neglect and abuse exists in our communities. As illustrated over previous posts here, nursing home neglect can take many forms, and oftentimes it is not discovered until it is too late. Once it is discovered, many victims are left with serious injuries, worsened medical conditions and significant physical and emotional pain and suffering. When Illinois residents choose a nursing home to take care of their elderly loved ones, they expect adequate and competent care. Anything less is unacceptable.
But, if you or your loved one have suffered from bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, medication error, a failure to monitor or any other form of nursing home neglect, then you may be wondering what you can do to try to remedy the situation. Many times, victims need medical care to treat their new injuries. A personal injury lawsuit, if successful, could help you recover these losses. If you win on such a claim, you might also be able to recover compensation for pain and suffering.
However, it is important to realize that nursing home neglect lawsuits are often hotly contested, with zealous defense attorneys fighting to protect nursing homes from liability. So, if you are considering taking legal action, then you need to be as fully prepared as possible.
