While there are many outstanding nursing homes in Illinois, regrettably some don’t cut the mustard and even at the good ones mistakes happen and abuse can occur. This often happens when a home is understaffed or ignores the needs of their patients. If an injury occurs such as bed sores, severe dehydration, a fall leading to broken hip, etc. then there may be the possibility of a nursing home abuse lawsuit.
If you have a family member in a DuPage County nursing home and you suspect abuse or neglect, it’s important to look into it right away. Maybe you have an elderly parent at a nursing home in Naperville who seems emotionally distressed; or perhaps you suspect your grandparent was given too much medication, or the wrong medication, at a nursing home in Elmhurst. Other signs of abuse and neglect may include bed sores/pressure sores, bruises, weight loss and dehydration.
Nursing home abuse and neglect cases in DuPage County are filed at the main county courthouse in Wheaton, which is located at 505 N. County Farm Road. After being filed, your case will be assigned to a judge in the Law Division, located on the second floor. This is where your attorney will appear for case management conferences and hearings. As a client, you do not have to attend most court dates, but you may attend if you wish. The trial also will take place in the main courthouse, unless it settles beforehand.
DuPage County – also known as the 18th Judicial Circuit – has the second largest court system in the state of Illinois. There are 320,000 new cases filed in DuPage County every year. With so many lawyers to choose from, we can help you find someone with specific experience in DuPage County nursing home cases, as well as a proven track record of success. We listen to your unique situation, offer advice and make an attorney recommendation. Our goal is to find the best attorney for you and stop the abuse from happening to others in the future.
Before taking your case, an attorney will look at the facts and circumstances surrounding the injury or death of the nursing home resident. Without a clear injury, a case is harder to win. Most attorneys only take cases with a likelihood of success, since they are paid on a contingency basis (meaning they don’t get paid unless you win).
