LaSalle Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Nursing home abuse and neglect remains a major problem both in the state of Illinois and throughout the country. According to the most recent information provided by the National Council on Aging (NCOA), nearly one in ten Americans over the age of 60 has experienced some form of serious abuse. Far too often, assisted living facilities and nursing homes fail to live up to their duty to provide proper care and protection to their residents.

At Brassfield & Krueger, LTD., we fight for the legal rights of nursing home neglect victims. If you believe that your vulnerable family member was the victim of abuse in an Illinois assisted living facility, please contact our LaSalle nursing home abuse attorney for immediate legal assistance. We will review your claim for free, and determine exactly what needs to be done to protect your loved one.  

Common Warning Signs of Nursing Home Abuse

To ensure that your loved one is safe in their nursing home, you need to remain proactive. This means regularly visiting them, to prevent social isolation and keeping a close eye on the care and treatment that they are receiving. Should you notice any signs of abuse or neglect, you need to vigorously follow up on that issue. Never let the staff or nursing home operators sweep your concerns under the rug. Your voice must be heard. Some of the most common signs of abuse or neglect that you should look out for include:

  • Untreated medical problems;
  • Poor hygiene, including soiled clothing or bedding;
  • Unexplained loss of weight;
  • Signs of dehydration;
  • Direct complaints from your loved one;
  • Issues with staff members at the facility;
  • Adverse changes in mood of behavior; and
  • Anything else that gives you a general bad vibe.

Compensation Available for Victims of Nursing Home Abuse

In Illinois, nursing homes are licensed by the state. They are subject to certain legal mandates, including the requirement to provide all residents with an adequate quality of care. If a nursing home falls short of this duty, or any other legal duty, the facility can be held legally liable for the damages that result from their misconduct. Depending on the specific facts of your claim, our LaSalle County nursing home abuse lawyers can help you seek financial compensation for:

  • Medical bills and expenses;
  • Stolen money or property;
  • Any other related incidental economic damages;
  • Pain and suffering;
  • Mental anguish; and
  • Wrongful death.
