Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Claims

Cook And Collar County Attorneys For Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse And Neglect

When we entrust a loved one to the care of a nursing home, we certainly do not expect them to become victims of neglect or abuse, but unfortunately residents of nursing homes are subject to abuse and neglect every day in Illinois.

The law firm of Muldoon & Muldoon, LLC is here to ensure that the rights of nursing home residents are protected and that victims of nursing home neglect and abuse are properly compensated.

Illinois Nursing Home Residents Are Protected Under A Statutory "Bill Of Rights"

Unfortunately, abuse and neglect of nursing home residents has been a long standing and widespread problem in Cook County, DuPage County, Will County, the other counties and throughout Illinois. In response, the legislature passed the "Nursing Home Act" — a series of laws providing nursing home residents a "Bill of Rights," guaranteeing nursing home residents the right to, among other things, be free from abuse and neglect by nursing home personnel.

Abused And Neglected Nursing Home Residents Are Encouraged To Bring Lawsuits To Enforce The Act

The legislature realizes that the Illinois Department of Public Health cannot adequately police all nursing homes to detect every violation of the "Bill of Rights," so it encourages residents to act as "private attorney generals" by bringing lawsuits against negligent nursing homes to achieve two purposes: 1) compensate victims of abuse and neglect; and 2) stop the negligent practices to ensure other residents are not victimized by the same negligent actions. The Act specifically requires owners and operators of nursing homes to pay damages to nursing home residents whose rights under the Nursing Home Act are violated.
