Joliet Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Elder Neglect & Abuse Cook County and Surrounding Areas

When a loved one is placed into a nursing home, you have every right to expect that they will receive the care and treatment they need to stay healthy.  We expect our loved ones to be treated with dignity, sympathy and conscientiousness.  Their treatment should allow them to retain their health and their self respect.  Unfortunately, many of today's nursing homes offer sub-standard care, neglect, and, in some institutions, abuse.  Many loved ones do not receive the standard of care to which they are entitled.
 
Representing clients throughout Joliet, Cook County and the Chicago Suburbs, Nursing Home Abuse Attorney Tim Henderson is dedicated to protecting the rights of one of our most vulnerable members of society - our elderly.  If you believe that a loved one may be the victim of nursing home neglect or abuse it is important that you seek experienced legal advice.  You need someone who will work to protect your loved one's rights, fight to make sure they are properly treated and make sure that the compensation they deserve and need to care for their injuries is obtained on their behalf.  Representing clients in the Joliet, Chicago or Chicago Suburban area, Tim Henderson is ready to provide the experience, dedication and commitment you need.
 
Nursing home neglect and abuse is all too common in many of today's long term care facilities and it comes in many different forms.  Far too often, as a result of this neglect or abuse, our loved ones suffer serious personal injury and even wrongful death. 
 
Some common contributing factors in suspicious injury or death of a loved one may include:
  • Bed Sores
  • Pressure Sores
  • Dehydration
  • Malnutrition
  • Errors in the administration of medication
  • Errors in the medication
  • Physical abuse
  • Falls
Whether intentional or unintentional neglect or abuse, it is vitally important that the treatment that caused the injury or death is identified and immediate steps are taken to correct the problem and prevent it from reoccurring.  If it were possible that the injury could have been prevented if appropriate standards of care were followed, compensation may be available through a nursing home neglect/abuse lawsuit.
