About Us

Kane County Nursing Home Neglect and Abuse Lawyer

Attorneys Fighting for Elderly Victims Throughout Illinois

Schwartz Injury Law is a Chicago-based firm that is dedicated to providing a strong voice for victims of nursing home abuse and neglect. Our nursing home team has secured numerous six and seven-figure verdicts and settlements for our clients, and we know what it takes to prevail against even the most well-funded adversaries. The strong track record of success we have established is one of the major reasons clients trust us to take on even the most complex cases against nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and rehab facilities.

Our attorneys are members of the Chicago Bar Association, Illinois Trial Lawyers Association, Illinois State Bar Association, and Women's Bar Association of Illinois. Our lead attorney, Paul D. Richter, has been recognized as an Illinois Super Lawyer since 2015, and he enjoys a 10.0 (superb) Avvo rating.

We are highly acclaimed by our peers not only for our experience and skill, but also for our compassion, responsiveness, and personal commitment to the success of each case. Our team works collaboratively, putting our in-depth experience to work to deliver favorable results for our clients. We understand the pain and suffering our clients endure at the hands of negligent and abusive nursing facilities, and our mission is to hold those responsible for such egregious acts fully accountable.

Comprehensive Representation of Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Victims

These days, a growing number of nursing homes provide substandard care. Inadequate staffing, poorly trained staff, and poorly managed facilities are major factors that contribute to these types of conditions. Because of this, nursing home residents are exposed to numerous hazards, such as bed sores, infections, life-threatening injuries, malnutrition, dehydration, unreasonable restraint, medication errors, physical abuse, sexual abuse, lack of medical care, and many others.

Our team has seen just about every issue that can come up in a nursing home setting, and we know what factors to look for when reviewing facility records that may point to negligence or abuse. This gives us the ability to thoroughly evaluate the specific circumstances and quickly identify important (and often overlooked) facts and pieces of evidence that often decide the case. We also work closely with a team of nurses, physicians, and other professionals that can be called upon to provide expert testimony when needed.
