Medical Neglect Victim Attorneys Serving Cook County, DuPage County and Illinois

When an aging loved one moves into a nursing home or assisted living facility, they have the right to expect proper care and a decent quality of life. Unfortunately, many of these facilities are letting our honored elders down. ABC News reports that the elderly are abused in at least one out of three nursing homes throughout the country. One of the most common forms of nursing home abuse and neglect is lack of medical care. When medical neglect occurs in nursing homes, even the most minor health issues can quickly become severe and life-threatening.
