Chicago Nursing Home Injury Attorneys

A fall and broken bones — a broken hip, wrist or arm — is often the precipitating event that begins a downward spiral in health for a senior citizen. Whether it's the lack of activity, change of routine, or the effects of medication, as many as 20 percent of seniors will die within one year of a fall resulting in a broken hip.

Slip and Fall Hip Fracture Lawyers Advocating for Change and Justice

While not every fall is preventable, when there are noticeable predisposing factors for a fall, the staff at a nursing home should be particularly vigilant. And yet, perhaps 90 percent of the time, the nursing home staff puts a sticker on the door that says "fall precaution" and nothing else is done.

As we can see from the number of seniors who fall and break a hip, that's clearly not sufficient.

At the Chicago nursing home negligence law firm of Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, we understand the standard of care that nursing homes and their staff can reasonably be expected to provide. Our Chicago nursing home injury lawyers hold them accountable when they fail and that failure results in serious injuries or premature death.

Getting Compensation for Victims of Nursing Home Negligence

If you need legal help obtaining a financial recovery on behalf of a loved one injured in a fall in a nursing home, or want to hold a nursing home accountable for the death of your loved one from a fall, call toll free at (312) 401-4445 to speak to our nursing home injury lawyers in Chicago.

Our Chicago slip-and-fall hip fracture lawyers do not accept excuses from nursing homes. When serious injuries occur, it's time to investigate why.

  • Was it documented that the resident needed assistance with walking but the nursing home is so understaffed that no aid is available?
  • Was the elderly person left unattended in the bathroom or shower of so long that he or she finally decided to walk over slippery surfaces to get back to bed?
  • Is there a history of failure to respond to call lights for 15 minutes, 20 minutes, half an hour? Leaving the elderly to fend for themselves?

Understaffing is common and it can lead to a dangerous lack of care for vulnerable patients in short-term convalescent homes and long-term care facilities.
