Nursing Home Abuse

Do you have a family member, friend or loved one who is a resident in a long-term care facility or nursing home? If you are concerned that medical errors, neglect or abuse may have resulted in a loss of dignity, injury, bed sores, seriously compromised health or even death, an experienced nursing home lawyer may be needed.

James P. Crawley & Associates, Ltd., based in Chicago, Illinois, has personal injury attorneys who can help. Medication errors frequently occur, and lack of controls may result in "elopement" or wandering of patients suffering with Alzheimer's disease or dementia. In some cases, personnel at long-term care facilities may be neglectful in their duties, resulting in dropped patients. Residents with limited mobility are frequently not monitored closely resulting in severe injuries from falls because the resident was left unattended.

Among bedridden residents, decubitus ulcers, pressure sores or "bed sores" may appear. Decubitus ulcers (or bed sores) are often the result of poor patient care. In most cases, bed sores and pressure sores can be prevented or minimized. In many instances, bed sores become infected and require long-term hospitalization, surgeries become necessary to cleanse infected decubitus ulcer, and even amputations can occur from poorly treated pressure sores.

In more egregious nursing home cases, nursing home abuse attorneys have been called on to represent victims of elder abuse, including physically abused residents, patients who are raped or sexually assaulted, or subjected to repeated verbal or emotional abuse.

Our firm's nursing home attorneys work to pursue financial compensation for patients and residents of nursing homes and long-term facilities.

We understand the significant financial burden placed on the family when a loved one is in a nursing home or long-term care facility. That is why our nursing home lawyers work on a contingency fee basis. If we do not secure compensation on your behalf, you pay no legal fees.
