Nursing home abuse and wrongful death

Chicago residents expect a lot from nursing homes in the area, as all Americans should. We all want our elder loved ones to receive not just basic care, but high-quality nourishment, medical care and attention. When nursing home residents don't receive these requirements, they can languish into unhappiness or even die a wrongful death due to neglect or mistreatment.

For those who have family members in nursing homes and suspect elder abuse, it's important to listen to your loved ones as well as your inner voice. Remember, you have the right to initiate an investigation if you believe your loved one was injured or even killed while residing in a nursing home. Holding the responsible parties accountable for their actions or inaction is but one way we can all do our part to improve the quality of care our elders receive in nursing home facilities.

If you believe your elder might be suffering from abuse, neglect or inappropriate medical care, you can take steps to immediately to uncover the truth. This also holds true if you believe your loved one experienced a wrongful death while receiving nursing home care. For your and your loved one's protection, the first step is contacting a wrongful death attorney. He or she will advise you about which actions to take immediately following your consultation.

Often, the attorney will recommend documenting the alleged injuries or the circumstances surrounding death. The next step would likely be to consult with the all members of the nursing home staff in charge of directly treating or interacting with your family member.

There is hope for victims and surviving family members who have suffered from nursing home abuse. To learn more about wrongful death due to negligence, please browse our webpage detailing the signs of nursing home abuse.
