Downers Grove Nursing Home Abuse Attorney
Helping Victims of Nursing Home Neglect
When we place our elderly and vulnerable loved ones in the hands of others, we expect that they will be well cared for. Unfortunately, this does not always happen. If you suspect that a loved one is being harmed or neglected by the staff at a long-term nursing facility, you need to speak with a DuPage County nursing home abuse attorney as soon as possible. Negligent staff and the companies that oversee them need to be held accountable for their harmful and irresponsible actions.
I am Gregory J. Abbott, Attorney at Law, and I know how devastating it can be to see your most vulnerable loved ones harmed by people whom you trust. Nobody should have to live in the type of environment where negligent acts are tolerated or routinely ignored. I can help you get compensation for a loved one’s injuries and put a stop to the culture of recklessness that exists in some nursing home facilities.
Recognizing Signs of Nursing Home Abuse
When most people hear the word “abuse,” physical abuse immediately comes to mind. While this certainly falls into the abuse category, elder abuse can take on many forms, some physical and some that are due purely to neglect or inattention. Common problems that result from nursing home negligence include bedsores, malnutrition, dehydration, unexplained bruising, broken bones and unsupervised residents roaming the halls or the grounds.
It can be easy to explain away some injuries as part of the frailty of age, and this may be true. However, if you have any suspicions that a loved one is being mistreated, you should visit my Downers Grove personal injury law firm to discuss your concerns. If I take your case, I will launch a full investigation into your situation to determine what went wrong. I will work to hold not only individual staff members accountable for their negligence, but the home’s owners as well. You can rest assured that I will do everything I can to help you get full and fair compensation.
Caring and Compassionate Representation in Wrongful Death Cases
Residents of nursing facilities are vulnerable and have special needs. Unfortunately, negligence sometimes leads to tragic fatalities. If you have lost a loved one due to irresponsible care, I can help you file a wrongful death claim. I understand that no amount of compensation will fill the void left by the loss of a loved one. However, we can send a message that negligent behavior will not be tolerated.
