        Naperville Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

        When you decide to put a loved one into a nursing home, it can feel very stressful and uncertain. We make big decisions like this, thinking we have done the best we could for a loved one and when we find out that they have been subjected to negligence or abuse, it can be a very emotional experience. Our Naperville nursing home abuse lawyers want to bring justice when there is such wrongdoing. Please don’t hesitate to call our office to set up your free first consultation. You deserve to get the compensation that is full and fair.

        The Signs of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect

        If you suspect that your loved one is suffering nursing home abuse, you need to watch for signs that confirm your suspicions. It is a horrible thing to watch someone suffer but you need to be able to collect this evidence so that our Naperville nursing home abuse lawyers can show the liable party what they did wrong and so we can use this for a record to win our case against them.

        Sometimes nursing home abuse isn’t very visible and sometimes it’s one acute incident that needs to be investigated. Things might not be immediately apparent to you. You might not notice right away that your loved one is being malnourished until they start losing weight and suffering health conditions because of it. There are things, however, that you could notice right away, such as bruises and cuts on your loved one that could be a sign of them being left unattended. The most important thing that you can do when you notice the signs is to collect the evidence as best as you can, then reach out to us to set up a consultation.

        Some things that you might want to look for if you are trying to collect evidence of abuse include the hygiene of your loved one and the cleanliness of their living area. Take a good look at their bedsheets to see if they have been changed regularly; if not, take photos of that. Notice their weight and keep that on your radar in case it dramatically changes.

        Psychological abuse is common among nursing home patients. It’s a horrible thought to think that our loved ones are being mistreated by staff but signs that you should be looking for include an increase in nervousness or depression that they hadn’t had before their time at the nursing home, as well as changes in behavior that are unexpected.

        Anything that you believe to be nursing home abuse should be collected as evidence either through photos, audio, or video. You may be wrong but it is better to be sure than to lose out on holding a liable party accountable for the abuse that they have done. Our Naperville nursing home abuse lawyers care deeply about serving justice to our community and you have a right to file a claim if the negligence is present.

        Examples of Nursing Home Abuse 

        Here are some detailed examples of scenarios in which nursing home abuse and neglect were present to give you a better idea of what warrants a case:

        Resident was left unattended in a stairwell by staff without having their wheelchair secured. The wheelchair tumbled down the stairs, causing the resident severe injuries that were not noticed for over an hour, resulting in their death.

        A resident had been left to sit in their waste by a staff member. The resident had recently had surgery and lack of care resulted in a severe infection and sepsis.

        Nursing home staff was underfeeding a resident for a prolonged period of time resulting in their patients becoming malnourished and underweight and developing a lowered immune response.

        A resident of a nursing home was rarely helped out of their room and out of their bed. They didn’t have assistance they needed getting to the bathroom and frequently soiled themselves, which led to a severe infection and sepsis.

        Our Naperville nursing home abuse lawyers strive to make your life easier by giving you the support and resources to have a successful claim for your nursing home abuse case. We don’t back down until your settlement offer is the fullest and fairest it can possibly be.

        When we seek justice, we are seeking money damages in the form of a compensation award. The nursing home itself will not be financially responsible for this damage. Their insurance company is the one who is going to be covering all of the damages involved in your nursing home abuse case. They will be the one fulfilling the compensation award. We also know that they want to save themselves money because they are a business and they want profit but we don’t let them short you on something as grave as this.

        They will fight to protect their bottom line but we will fight harder to protect your rights. Our Naperville nursing home abuse lawyers understand their tactics and we understand what a full and fair compensation award should look like. We don’t back down until we make them pay.

        Nursing Home Abuse Case Value

        The money damages involved in a nursing home abuse case is meant to cover any related expenses and losses suffered because of someone else’s wrongdoing. This might include anywhere from the medication needed for the loved one to the surgical bills to the pain and suffering that the victim and their family have had to endure. 

        There can be rehabilitation fees that we will include in a compensation award if it is within reason and appropriate to the case. This could be physical therapy after a surgery, for example. Psychological therapy may also be included if the abuse the victim suffered from was mental and emotional. These damages are meant to cover anything that you would’ve paid out-of-pocket for these types of damages and they are called economic damages.

        You will also be able to seek non-economic damages which cover all of the negative ways in which life has changed since this nursing home abuse happened. Pain and suffering is included, as well as mental and emotional anguish or trauma that the loved one had to go through. These are tough things to put a dollar amount on because they are very subjective. Our Naperville nursing home abuse lawyers, however, understand that this is a significant part of these cases and should be accurately reflected in the compensation that is given.

        Nursing home abuse claims in which the loved one has passed because of their injuries not only goes after the pain and suffering that the loved one went through and the medical bills, if there were any, but also includes costs for the funeral and burial as well as non-economic damages of the loss of a companion or loved one.
