Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Lawyer
Featured: Attorney Uche secures $1.18 million against Chicago police for wrongful death.
Every year millions of Americans entrust nursing homes with the care of their elderly loved ones. Unfortunately, in spite of the millions that nursing homes receive through medicaid and medicare, and in spite of tough laws such as the Nursing Home Care Act, corruption and bad care are rampant in the nursing home industry. Thousands of reports and statistics show that nursing homes are plagued with under-staffing problems and lack of training of personnel. This breakdown in staffing and training is the common cause of most of the injuries associated with nursing home abuse. Perhaps, even more troubling, is the fact that most patients in nursing homes are defenseless either because of their age, illness or injury.
Some of the most common injuries associated with nursing home abuse are bedsores, fractures from falls, brain injuries and poor treatment and mistreatment. What is even more troubling is that most nursing homes fail to take responsibility for any harm caused to patients. A general cover-up ensues and the nursing home spends thousands of dollars defending any allegation as opposed to spending the money on quality care and prevention of injuries.
At Uche P.C. we have the resources and the experience to ensure that families and their loved ones receive justice. We ensure that nursing homes are held accountable and are subject to high monetary awards to assist patients and to punish for an abuse.
