CHICAGO NURSING HOME ABUSE LAWYER
Choosing a nursing home for your loved one is a difficult decision that should not be taken lightly. Every effort should be taken to ensure that the facility is safe, sanitary, and provides your loved one with the type of care he or she needs. Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer Phil Berenz is here to compassionately fight for YOU!
Sadly, abusive conditions exist in many nursing homes, and despite your intentions to find a quality care facility, your loved one may have suffered from the malicious or negligent actions of an aide, nurse, or other nursing home worker.
No one should have to experience abuse or neglect at the hands of their caretakers, so if you or your loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse, I want to help you take action against those responsible for such reprehensible and inexcusable treatment.
Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Cases
While no one ever expects that the assisted living facility where their family resides could be responsible for committing acts of neglect and/or abuse, the sad reality is that more than 30% of such facilities in the United States have committed some form of abuse, and this statistic only takes into consideration cases that have been reported.
Federal and Illinois laws guarantee nursing home residents certain rights when staying in a nursing home. Among these rights are the right to a clean and safe environment, the right to the proper medical care, the right to make decisions about that care, the right to a certain amount of daily attention, and a stay that is free from abuse or neglect.
Unfortunately, many nursing home workers in Illinois do not always honor these rights, and residents end up abused or neglected.
If you believe that someone you love at a Illinois nursing home is the victim of abuse or neglect, you should notify local authorities and contact Attorney Phil Berenz and Berenz Law Network right away.
We have helped many nursing home abuse and neglect victims and their families in Chicago and throughout Illinois recover personal injury compensation for their injuries, pain and suffering, and other damages.
Chicago Nursing home abuse can take on a variety of forms, including:
- Physical Abuse
- Sexual Abuse
- Emotional Abuse
- Malnutrition or Dehydration
- Bed Sores, Pressure Sores, Decubitus Ulcers
- Physical or Chemical Restraints
- Clogged Breathing Tubes
- Wandering and Elopement

Sadly, nursing home abuse cases often go unreported. Victims are sometimes silent out of fear or embarrassment, and loved ones do not always know the signs of abuse to look for.
