Illinois Nursing Home Abuse and Personal Injury Lawyers
Seeing a once-strong and independent family member in a nursing home can be heartbreaking. But it’s even more shattering if you realize that your elderly loved one has been suffering neglect or physical abuse at the hands of those who were supposed to be treating them with dignity and respect.
Nursing home abuse is a growing problem in Illinois and nationwide. It’s estimated that the elderly are abused at 1 out of 3 nursing homes nationwide, which means that some 600,000 seniors are being abused each year. And that figure may be an underestimate. Many abused seniors are too frightened, intimidated or incapacitated to voice a complaint – and so their torment goes unheard and uncounted.
