Selecting an attorney or law firm to represent you in a lawsuit can be a daunting task for people that do not have legal experience, but it does not have to be. During your selection process, it is important that you choose a firm with a proven record of success in litigating against Illinois nursing homes and extended care facilities, and that you select a law firm that has previously handled cases that are similar to your situation. Every legal situation is unique, but by selecting a law firm that has experience with nursing home litigation, and the resources that are required to successfully litigate complex matters you can help to ensure results which will provide you with the full value that represents fair compensation for the damages caused to you or your loved one.

If you have a friend or loved one who is in residence in a nursing home or assisted living facility, it is important that you learn how to identify the signs of nursing home abuse or neglect so you will be able to tell when intervention is needed. These signs are fairly varied, but some of the more common ones include:

  • Dehydration
  • Weight loss
  • Injuries caused by falls
  • Poor hygiene or a disheveled appearance
  • Unclean conditions
  • Bed sores
  • Unexplained cuts, bumps or bruises
  • Sprains and/or broken bones
  • Unexplained changes in mood or outlook
  • Uncharacteristic depression
  • Changes in activities or schedules on the part of the resident
