Types of Nursing Home Injuries

Personal Injury Lawyers Serving Chicago, Cicero, Oak Park, Berwyn and Nearby Areas in Illinois

 

TRANSCRIPT: In my experience, a lot of the nursing home injuries have to do with neglect, meaning bedsores, your loved one or the patient will have bedsores because they've been unattended and they haven't been taken care of properly. We also have a lot of cases involving injuries where they didn't watch you close enough and there's falls. You should have had rails on the bed, or there's an order saying you should not be let out of your bed without an attendant present. So those are the typical types of cases — malnourishment, falls, bedsores. If you suspect that there's been nursing home abuse, contact us. We'd be more than happy to give you a free consultation and give you our opinion.
