Nursing Home Negligence
When you place a loved one in a nursing home you expect that they will receive the care they deserve. Unfortunately, negligence or outright abuse in nursing homes occurs frequently. Often due to inadequate training or insufficient staffing, these violations tragically compromise the health, well-being, and dignity of some of the most vulnerable members of our society. At Kelly & Ignoffo Law Group, our personalized advocacy and dedicated litigation strategies deliver the compensation and peace of mind our clients deserve.
We have successfully prosecuted complex nursing home neglect and abuse cases involving issues such as the failure to prevent or treat pressure ulcers, failure to protect patients from falls, failure to provide sufficient staffing, failure to provide adequate nutrition, medication errors, and more. Federal government regulations, the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, and healthcare community guidelines have been established to protect nursing home residents. Our attorneys consult highly qualified experts and reference applicable state and federal regulations to fully prosecute our cases and obtain the best possible results.
