Every Resident Deserves Respect, Dignity and Care
At Konicek & Dillon in Geneva and Chicago, our lawyers advise and represent families after nursing home injuries and deaths. We initiate investigations, review safety regulations and filter through the voluminous amounts of information that may pertain to a resident’s injury or death case.
We educate our clients to help them understand what a nursing home or assisted living facility was supposed to do, by law, to keep their loved ones safe. We push for accountability of health care providers, caregivers and organizations whose job is to provide proper care and supervision to elderly or disabled residents of long-term care facilities. We draw on our years of experience and call in experts as needed to provide analyses for individual cases.
If your loved one suffered a medication error, wandered out of the building, fell, choked, was burned in a hot bath or became dehydrated or malnourished in a nursing home or assisted living facility, you deserve answers — and the nursing home may be required to pay compensation to you or your family.
You Do Not Have To Take Excuses For Answers About Your Loved One’s Unexplained Injury Or Death In A Nursing Home Or Assisted Living Facility
It is common for nursing home managers to imply that an unexpectedly injured or deceased long-term care facility resident “was in poor health and was vulnerable to injury or was going to die soon anyway.” The offensive idea is that burn injuries, pressure ulcers and even deaths should be excused because the person who was injured or died was already in their last years, months or weeks. Reject this idea.
At Konicek & Dillon, we take serious exception to attitudes that devalue seniors. Our attorneys advocate zealously for patients’ and residents’ rights in long-term care facilities. We agree with our clients that their loved ones’ lives, no matter what limitations they had or how short their expected life spans were, must not be devalued. No one has the right to put another person in danger, take another person’s life or shorten another person’s life through abuse or neglect.
Before you allow a nursing home or assisted living manager to dismiss your concerns about suspicious circumstances of your loved one’s unexpected or unexplained injury or death, please get solid legal advice. Contact us to learn how a lawyer at Konicek & Dillon can help right some wrongs.
