Nursing homes are entrusted with the care of the most vulnerable - those too sick, elderly or mentally disabled to take care of themselves.
Numerous studies and statistics show that when the nursing home fails in those duties, either by intentional bad acts or by neglect, the results can be devastating.
The victim's condition could worsen or he or she could suffer greater bodily injury or even death. Many states have special laws and requirements for reporting abuse in a nursing home setting.
Nursing home abuse attorneys in Kane County, Illinois may be able to act on the victim's behalf to bring the nursing home operators to justice and recover money damages.
The AAJ is committed to promoting a fair and effective civil justice system while supporting the work of attorneys representing plaintiffs.
