Nursing Home Negligence Lawyer

Are you concerned for the well-being of a loved one in a nursing home? Are you concerned that he or she is not receiving the level of care that was promised after initially entering the facility? The decision of placing a loved one in a nursing home or other senior facility is a tremendously difficult one. The only comfort is the assurance that his or her needs will be met and that he or she will be cared for appropriately. Now, however, questions about the quality of the care they are receiving have risen. At Edmonds Law Office, our nursing home lawyers investigate these claims to protect against elderly abuse.

While there are many different reasons to make a nursing home negligence claim, the Edwardsville nursing home attorneys at Edmonds Law understand that each case is different and requires extreme care.

If your loved one has experienced an injury in a nursing home, and it has raised suspicions, we recommend that you start keeping a detailed log of the names of caregivers, dates when particular incidents occurred, and any other relevant information. Maintaining a record may help you begin to see patterns in the care that your loved one is receiving. You can also contact the Illinois Department of Public Health to see if any investigations have occurred or violations have been cited. Even if your loved one has passed, we recommend discussing your concerns with a seasoned nursing home attorney.
