Nursing Home Abuse
Chicago Lawyers Handling Nursing Home Negligence and Abuse Cases
At a stage when our parents and other elderly family members are most fragile, we trust that a nursing home will be the safest place for them. Unfortunately, these facilities often fail to take even the most basic measures to protect them.
When a nursing home or another long-term care facility fails to properly staff and care for elderly residents, they can suffer from bedsores, infections and falls. Physical and emotional abuse can also occur when a facility does not properly screen its staff before hiring or when staff members are not property supervised.
At Anesi Ozmon, we hold the negligent individuals and facilities responsible for the unnecessary suffering your loved one has endured.
