Southern Illinois Nursing Home Negligence Injury Abuse Lawyers
Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Injury Attorneys
Metro-East – Southwestern and Southern Illinois – Metro St. Louis – Eastern Missouri
Under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, nursing homes are required by law to make sure residents receive an expected level of care and protection of their individual rights. Facing today’s economic realities, however, many nursing home owners and managers choose to take shortcuts in staff training, operations and security.
If you have a loved one who has suffered an injury or violation of rights because of negligence on the part of nursing home ownership, management, staff or other residents, you are entitled to fight for financial compensation. Often, a lawsuit is the only way to improve living conditions and stop illegal practices.
