The elderly and the disabled in nursing care facilities are extremely vulnerable, relying on employees to provide them with the high-quality personal care they need. Unfortunately, when staff members and other administrators are negligent, it can result in falls and serious injuries.
At our Chicago nursing home negligence law firm in Chicago, we bring nearly 40 years of experience to nursing home negligence and abuse cases.

Nursing homes are responsible for assessing their clients for risk and taking safety measures to prevent injuries and other complications. When a resident is identified as a fall risk, a workable plan must be in place to prevent falls and the injuries they cause, such as fractures and broken bones.
If your loved one has been injured in a fall, we will thoroughly investigate to determine if proper precautions were taken. If we find that negligence was a factor in the injury, we will bring a lawsuit against staff members to hold them accountable for their actions.Free Consultations
