Wheaton / Will County / Joliet Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
The elderly members of our families hold special places in our heart. Our parents, grandparents, and even aunts and uncles are cherished loved ones. When the time comes that they can no longer live on their own, we place their care in the hands of nursing homes and assisted living facilities.
It is then beyond appalling when you discover that your family member has suffered neglect or abuse at the hands of the nursing home staff. These offenses can range from outright physical abuse, to the patient simply not getting the care to which they are entitled. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for a particular nursing home to have a pattern of neglect and abuse. A qualified lawyer can help you assess your case and provide best options for moving forward in your lawsuit.
Winning Settlements for Victims of Nursing Home Abuse
Zayed Law Offices provides caring representation to family members dealing with the sensitive issue of nursing home abuse. Not only can this neglect and abuse cause painful and debilitating injuries, it also strips the elderly individuals of their dignity. If elders in your family have been the victims of nursing home abuse, they are entitled to financial compensation for their injuries and for the humiliation they have endured. Our law firm fights aggressively against these offenders and their insurance agents in order to obtain a fair settlement. We send a strong message that this type of behavior will not be tolerated in our society and that financial restitution must be made.
Today, many nursing homes are in violation of federal health and safety standards. That number may be as high as 95 percent of nursing homes throughout the country.
