Nursing Home Abuse

Homewood Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Our Personal Injury Lawyer Can Help You Hold Responsible Parties Accountable

We put our faith and trust in nursing home caretakers. When we find out that our loved one is being neglected or abused, it can be especially painful. The elderly population is particularly vulnerable to mistreatment, and abuse at the hands of healthcare professionals and nursing home staff members is more common than we would like to think.

At Panio Law Offices, we can help you hold health care professionals responsible. We do this by helping you file a claim for the compensation your loved one needs to heal and move forward.

If your loved one is suffering as a result of elder abuse or nursing home neglect, contact our nursing home abuse lawyer, located in Chicago and Homewood, at (708) 928-8680.

We Handle All Nursing Home Abuse Cases

Just as is the case with some hospitals, many nursing home facilities fail to put patient care first. When healthcare providers and nursing home caretakers put profit over their patients, neglect and abuse can occur. Additionally, the elderly community can suffer from debilitating conditions like dementia and Alzheimer's, making speaking out against abuse difficult for them.

However, if you’ve discovered that your loved one is being mistreated by their nursing home caretakers, you do have options, and you can hold the doctors, nurses, staff members, and nursing home facilities accountable for their actions.

At Panio Law Offices, we handle all kinds of nursing home abuse cases, including:

  • Bedsores
  • Frequent falls and/or dropped patients
  • Malnutrition, including dehydration
  • Medication errors, including dosage errors and withholding of medication
  • Financial abuse and exploitation
  • Suspicious power of attorney, and will changes
  • Physical harm, including suspicious injuries
  • Emotional abuse and trauma
  • Sepsis cases
  • Sexual harassment and/or assault
  • Unreasonable restraints and/or bedrail entrapment
  • Wrongful death

Whether your loved one is dealing with physical, medical, or emotional neglect, our nursing home abuse attorney can help. We have extensive experience litigating these cases in Illinois, and with a proven track record of success. Let Panio Law Offices help you feel more confident taking your case to court.

How To Prove Nursing Home Abuse

In order to provide proof of nursing home negligence and abuse, the following items are suggested:

  • Providing examples of the abuse that you have witnessed
  • Gathering medical records from the nursing home
  • Providing photos that show abuse or signs of abuse
  • Regularly inspecting the home
  • Gathering witness statements
