Chicago Nursing Home Malpractice Lawyer

While we often entrust the care of our elderly loved ones to nursing homes, the unfortunate reality is that some serious injuries are the result of nursing home neglect or even physical abuse by nursing home staff. This is unacceptable.

Getting Maximum Compensation for Injured Seniors

At the Chicaqo medical malpractice law firm of Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, we work to protect the rights of senior citizens. If we discover that elder neglect or abuse has taken place, resulting in falls and fractures, burns, malnutrition or fatal infections, we take immediate action to get compensation for the victim. From our more than 40 years of experience in personal injury law, we know where to find the medical experts needed to prove medical negligence on the part of nursing home nurses and staff.

The  nursing home malpractice attorneys at our Chicago law firm are committed to getting results in negotiations and in court for clients. You can be confident that we will work hard to get results for you. If your loved one was hurt in a nursing home or died as a result of inadequate and negligent care, contact us online or call toll free (312) 401-4445 for a free consultation.

Our Method Makes the Difference in Getting Compensation for Nursing Home Injuries

If you ask the staff at any Chicago-area nursing home how your loved one suffered a broken hip, you may be told it was "just an accident." What does that really mean? Was he unsupervised when he needed help to walk? Was she improperly restrained so that she fell out of bed or out of her chair?

If you were told that your loved one has bed sores, but not informed that those bedsores are the source of the life-threatening sepsis infection, you've got good reason to question whether the staff are providing adequate care.

If your loved one has had a significant loss of weight and you are told that "it's not our job to feed people," it's reasonable to suspect malnutrition is the result, not the natural decline at end of life. It is, in fact, reasonable to expect that an aide can help with feeding.

Other questionable injuries that could have occurred because of nursing negligence, lack of training and supervision, or understaffing include:

  • Tripping and falling over dirty laundry or other things left in the hallway
  • Alzheimers or dementia patients wandering away from the facility
  • Broken bones or strangulation from improper use of restraints
  • Worsening medical condition because a resident's medication is being stolen by staff

Experienced Nursing Home and Caregiver Negligence Attorneys

At Steinberg, Burtker & Grossman, our Chicago personal injury lawyers we look beyond the obvious in cases involving nursing home injuries. The fact of the matter is, you placed your loved one in the care of a nursing home to prevent these injuries. When serious injuries occur, it's time to investigate why.

Our Chicago caregiver negligence lawyers do not accept excuses from nursing homes. We will get to the root of the problem. Yes, a broken hip may have been the result of a falling accident. However, that accident may have been preventable if the long-term care facility was sufficiently staffed. Insufficient staffing is a common form of negligence leading to injury or wrongful death.

Nursing Home Accident Claims Are Handled on a Contingency Basis

We have the resources to invest in your case. We will not ask you for any payment unless we are successful in getting you compensation for your nursing home negligence claim.
