Need an Experienced Chicago Nursing Home Negligence Attorney

Could your senior loved one have suffered from abuse or neglect in an elder care facility? It’s best not to ignore the signs.

Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys

The National Council on Aging reports that about 5 million US elders are abused each year, but only 1 in 14 elder abuse cases are reported to authorities. some symptoms of nursing home mistreatment don’t seem very alarming, but they could actually indicate serious forms of abuse or neglect. According to the Government Accountability Office that oversees nursing home complaints, from 2005 to 2014 the number of nursing home complaints has increased. This indicates that the quality of care from nursing homes has been declining. However, one may find it surprising that more commonly the person who commits the abuse is often a trusted family or friend rather than a stranger. In fact, according to the National Center on Elder Abuse, approximately 10% of the elderly community is victim to some sort of elder abuse. Additionally, the most likely type of abuse is verbal abuse.

If you suspect that your senior family member has been harmed in a nursing home or assisted living facility in the Chicago area, talk to us at Willens Injury Law Offices. We aim to protect seniors through our assertive legal approach while helping the entire family with our compassionate service.

The Reality Of Nursing Homes In Illinois

When we entrust an elder family member to a long-term care facility, we do so with the expectation that our loved one will get appropriate care and attention. Sadly, the reality is very often the opposite.

A 2019 survey revealed that Illinois is among the worst states when it comes to nursing home care. The Illinois Department of Public Health also says that every year, its Nursing Home Hotline receives nearly 19,000 calls, and their staff responds to over 5,000 complaints. According to the NCEA, one in ten elderly adults suffers abuse. While it is often difficult to have a loved one placed in a long-term facility, it is often safer than having them live at home without around-the-clock care.

Our state’s elder care facilities function poorly for many reasons. For-profit residences face rigid business competition, leading some to shortcut service. Residences may disregard industry guidelines, spend little on equipment, hire untrained staff, and reduce staff. A 2018 study found 280 Illinois facilities have low staffing.

These substandard practices cascade into issues such as low staff-to-resident ratios, overwork employees, and hire employees unqualified to begin with. Ultimately, it’s the residents – our elder loved ones – who suffer from unacceptable nursing home practices.

To protect your loved one from abuse, take preventative steps when choosing a facility. Compare facilities here. On this site, you can review the overall ratings of the facility as well as see the numbers for health inspections and staffing. When visiting facilities, ask how many falls have occurred and what preventative measures are taken if the facility is equipped to handle any special requirements your loved one has, and what the resident to faculty ratio is. There are several checklists available on the internet you can use to ensure you ask the right questions to find the best facility for your loved one. Do your research before selecting a facility so you can help your loved one have the best and safest experience.

Additionally, check the Illinois Department of Public Health to see if the facility has had any violations.  The Nursing Home Care Act set levels for violations and sanctions given to facilities. The levels are split into the following four categories:

  • Type AA violation – when a condition of the facility or something that happened caused the death of a resident. This is the most severe violation.
  • Type A violation – when a condition of the facility or something that happened would certainly be likely to cause the death or serious mental or physical harm to residents. It also occurs when severe physical or mental harm has already occurred.
  • Type B violation – when a condition of the facility or an occurrence is more likely than not to cause more than minimal physical or mental harm to a resident.
  • Type C violation – when a condition of the facility or occurrence creates a substantial probability that less than minimal physical or mental harm to a resident will result.

If a facility has had a violation, be cautious going forward with choosing them for your loved one. Ensure you ask questions about what happened and what steps the facility has taken to ensure the problem does not occur again.

Types And Warning Signs Of Nursing Home Abuse

When we talk about elder abuse, we often think of symptoms such as bruises and serious injuries. However, there are many other abuse symptoms to look out for. Elder abuse is generally anytime a person knowingly, intentionally, or negligently causes harm to an elderly person. They can be as subtle as a slight change in the elder’s behavior, or as common as bedsore or a rash. Moreover, senior abuse is not always physical. Take note of these various forms of elder abuse, and their common warning signs.


Physical abuse.
This is likely the first type of abuse that comes to mind. It occurs when either a caretaker or another resident causes physical harm to your loved one. Look out for bruises, bumps, cuts, pressure marks, broken bones, or burns. While physical injuries can be the most obvious sign of this type of abuse, bruises can be hidden. If your loved one suddenly has a severe change in their demeanor or personality, it could be helpful to inquire into what caused the change.


Financial exploitation.
This happens when a caregiver has access to the senior’s finances, then misuses or withholds these. Check any changes in your loved one’s financial situation, such as bank withdrawals, bounced checks, updates in their will or estate plan, and secretive behavior regarding their finances. Preventative measures can be taken by having financially responsible family members on accounts so financial changes can be overseen.


Emotional abuse.
When an elder receives verbal harassment, threats, or intimidation from staff or other residents, it may be considered emotional abuse. This type of mistreatment can also stem when the elder is unduly confined or isolated by staff. Signs of emotional harm include flinching or panicking around the staff, being argumentative against a caregiver, and unexplained withdrawal from usual activities.


Sexual abuse.
This can include any sexual activity that the resident is unwilling to consent to or unable to understand. It can include touching or fondling. This kind of abuse may show behavioral signs like the ones listed above, coupled with physical signs like pelvic injuries, bleeding in the genital area, and torn or stained underwear.


Willful deprivation.
This is when caregivers deny the residents things such as their provisions, necessary physical assistance, medications. This abuse can show physical signs such as poor hygiene, unusual weight loss, and health complaints (e.g. stomachaches or headaches). There may also be behavioral signs such as the resident’s hostility in the presence of caregiving staff.


Passive neglect.
Some caregivers do not actively harm the residents but fail to provide their necessities such as food, medical care, and clothing. An elder’s poor hygiene, unusual weight loss, malnutrition, bedsores, and missed medication are warning signs of this mistreatment. Also check your loved one’s provisions – dirty sheets, clogged breathing tubes, and worn clothing may also signal neglect. Speak with your loved one routinely and ask if they are receiving the care and attention they need.


What To Do If Your Loved One Shows Signs Of Abuse

Illinois authorities accept calls on suspected abuse or neglect. Don’t hesitate to report to the appropriate hotline:

When you spot symptoms of mistreatment on your loved one, it’s important to stay calm and rational. However, take action right away. Start by talking to the elder first, helping them feel safe enough to tell you about their condition at the nursing home. You may also want to speak politely with the staff about the signs you’ve seen. Don’t be afraid to ask many questions and take down notes.

Documentation is important when you believe abuse has occurred. To report suspected abuse, you should collect the following information:

  • Name and age of the person being abused
  • Signs or symptoms of the abuse
  • The facility name and address
  • What sort of abuse occurred
  • When the abuse occurred
  • Who was involved
  • Who witnessed the abuse

Gather notes from your conversations, as well as other potential evidence. This can include photographs of the elder’s condition, their medical records, weight logs, bank records, receipts, and the like. When reporting suspected abuse, remain as calm as possible and stick to reporting facts.

It is best to also talk to a lawyer. Even if taking legal action is not your priority, it is worth it to at least consult with a competent and compassionate attorney who can advise you on the best options for your loved one and family. We offer free consultations and it does not cost you anything to hire us unless you get compensation.

Remember that the law intends to protect our seniors from harm. If your senior loved one has suffered in a facility, your family may have strong grounds to pursue a legal case. The compensation that you may obtain from this case can greatly relieve the financial weight that may have resulted from the abuse. Hiring an attorney will allow you to hand over the reins of dealing with legal matters and will allow you to grieve properly. More importantly, holding the nursing home accountable can be a solid step towards ensuring better care for elders like your loved one.

It's been over a year since I was involved in my car accident - everyone knows that is a very stressful time for the injured party. I considered going through the whole process on my own but I quickly realized the insurance company was NOT my friend. I reached out to Willens Law Offices, met Matt and the attorney that would be handling my claim, David Baez. David was excellent, I'm big on communication and anytime I texted David; sometimes ad nauseam, he would always respond quickly and professionally. I had a ton of questions, and David answered everyone of them to my satisfaction. I could not have asked for a better attorney to fight for me, I have extremely high expectations and they were exceeded consistently.

I had an accident injuries and based on google reviews I reached out to Willens Law Offices in Chicago. David Baez helped me with my case. He came to meet us and understood our case in detail and he guided me all the steps of the process. I had advices from friends that you are unnecessarily going after the process and nothing will happen. David made everything worthwhile and he gave right advice always which was right for my health and right for the case. He worked very hard on my case for 2 years collecting all the paperwork, talking to physicians and taking care of my case and making it in my favor. I was truly blessed by having David Baez handling my case who was extremely professional, great ethics and felt as my family with him. After the injuries and pain I was afraid to select one but my God made me select the right one. If anyone feel they need accident injuries lawyer then I will only recommend David Baez. Nobody will beat his hard work, professionalisms, ethics and perseverance and yet down to earth and honest. Thank you for everything you have done for me and blessings from my heart for his success.

I was involved in an accident back in last year and was searching for an attorney who looked like I can trust. I found Matt Willens and I am thankful. I called him up just to get a feel for him as a person and I could tell right away that he truly cared, not only about me but my family too. To say that he fought for us would be an understatement. He was ready to go to trial! Luckily we settled and it was for more money than I imagined, especially after my initial talk with the insurance company. Thanks Matt!

I’m rarely compelled to leave a review for anyone but I felt I needed to show my gratitude.From the first time I spoke with Matt Willens on the phone I actually felt like he was there for me, looking after my best interests and not his own. That’s rare in my experience.Matt is an absolute pro and I wouldn’t think to call or recommend anyone else if I or a loved one were injured in the future. Thanks Matt!

When I first contacted Willens law office, I just wanted to make sure everyone was paid after I was rear ended and I wasn’t the one doing it. My correspondence was primarily with David, he was always patient when I was slow to get him information and ended up calling me with great news after almost a year of back and forth with the at-fault insurance company.I can’t thank David and the Willens law office enough.

Willens Law came highly recommended after I was badly injured when hit by an out of control car. I in turn most highly recommend Willens Law based on my great experience over the past year and a half.I am very pleased with both the outcome of my case as well as the experience working with Matt Willens and David Baez throughout the process.I had no specific expectation regarding a case outcome, seeking only ‘the best outcome possible.’ I certainly believe my case outcome was a great outcome. And I strongly believe that outcome was a direct result of fantastic work done by Matt and David.From beginning to end Matt and David were great to work with. They did a great job setting expectations; explaining what was to happen, including the why and the how; guiding me through the steps I needed to take; and answering both my “need to know” and “just curious” questions. They were always extremely prompt and clear in their guidance and responses to me.A silver lining in a tough situation was working with Matt and David, both of whom I came to respect professionally and like personally. I do most highly recommend Willens Law to others who may need such services.

After being in an Uber accident about a year ago, I reached out to Willens Law to assist me through the settlement process. I had the pleasure of working with David Baez. From the start he was very personable and professional. He was always willing to educate me on the process and made sure I understood each step before going forward. Even after receiving my settlement, David has been willing to assist with any questions related to my case. I would highly recommend Willens Law.

I reached out to Willens Law Offices following a car accident that my girlfriend and I were involved in, and we met with David Baez for an in-person consultation shortly after. David was very personable and knowledgeable, and gave us confidence and peace of mind in a situation where we felt initially felt completely overwhelmed. There were times when we felt the communication could have been more proactive, but David was always responsive when we felt the need to check-in, even if there were no significant updates on our case. The process took a little longer than anticipated, but David was honest, thorough, and professional throughout.Overall, great experience and I'd recommend to anyone in need. Thank you David!

After I was injured, and after researching Chicago's best law firms, I found Willens Law and read their reviews. After meeting Matt, I retained their services, along with the special efforts of his Partner, David Baez.They handled my case in a professional, efficient manner, while keeping me regularly informed. We worked incredibly well together, and won a very nice settlement. You would be foolish not to consider Willens Law for your Counsel, as I did. I highly recommend them!Ed Dybas

Working with Willens Law was a pleasure. They were responsive and extremely pleasant whenever I had questions or concerns. In my case, I personally took a little longer than I should have to start the process on my end, but David was able to pickup on my delay and process my personal injury case in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Willens Law and David when looking for an attorney to represent you in a case.

I had a tremendous experience with this law firm, and I would highly recommend them. I had a bicycle injury caused by a negligent Uber car, and when I was first doing research and calling law firms all over the Chicago area to find representation, Matt Willens himself returned my call personally within ten minutes. I found that to be a huge integrity move as every other firm I contacted had a lower level employee call me back. Nothing wrong with that per se, but to have the lawyer whose name is on the door personally return my call meant a hell of a lot to me and was ultimately why I decided to meet with them first.I made an appointment and met Mr. Willens and the fantastic young attorney David Baez in their offices and they were wonderful to deal with. They are down-to-earth, funny, intelligent, tenacious, capable, experienced lawyers who explained the entire process to me in a way I could understand and made me feel comfortable and confident, and we were off and running with my case.I work in a law firm and I know exactly how slowly the wheels of justice turn, and my case was settled in about half the time that these things normally take! Amazing results. Mr. Baez and his team were incredible throughout and kept me informed every step of the way, and negotiated a higher settlement number and a lower fee for the insurance company in the eleventh hour which meant more money in my pocket!! I wholeheartedly recommend this law firm for your personal injury case. They are highly skilled and I couldn't be happier. This organization is fantastic and they will produce results for you.

Do I Really Need a Personal Injury Attorney to Handle My Case?

You are not legally required to have a personal injury attorney to handle your injury claim. You could file all the necessary paperwork yourself and represent yourself in court. However, your chances of winning your case and getting the compensation you deserve are much higher if you hire an experienced personal injury lawyer.

Why You Shouldn't Settle Directly With An Insurance Company

Insurance providers will try to get you to settle quickly. In the midst of your crisis, they might offer you what seems like a large dollar amount. The problem is they rarely make an offer of settlement for the true full cost of your damages. Don’t be misled, hospital bills aren’t the only things for which you will need compensation. You also need to keep in mind the suffering and pain associated with your traumatic event.
