Galesburg Nursing Home Abuse Attorney

Protecting the Rights of the Elderly

Nursing homes are highly regarded for the care they provide to our elderly loved ones. That is why when these institutions that we put our trust in fail us, or worse, cause harm to our family members, it is only right to seek justice. At Rehn Law LLC, we understand how devastating it is to learn that your elderly loved one has been a victim of nursing home abuse. In the two decades that we’ve been in practice, these types of cases are something that we feel strongly about. No one, especially those who just want to live out the rest of their lives quietly, deserves to be maltreated by the people who are supposed to care for them.

While there is no amount of money that can compensate for the possible trauma or even wrongful death that a nursing home abuse has caused, it is only just that you receive a fair settlement to at least help with your family member’s medical bills, financial losses, as well as pain and suffering.

Speak with our Galesburg nursing home abuse attorney immediately if you or someone you know is a victim of nursing home abuse or neglect!

Signs of Nursing Home Abuse & Neglect

Detecting abuse or neglect in a nursing home isn't also immediately apparent. It's important to know the signs so you can provide help to your loved one as quickly as possible. Some signs to look for include:

  • Unexplained injuries or bruises
  • Reports of refusal to take medication or overdosing
  • Changes in personality
  • Have they become uncharacteristically reserved?
  • Do they have an emotional or fearful reaction to a specific person?

It may also be helpful to observe their caregivers for some indications of intimidation or questionable behavior. Unfortunately, the state of Illinois is no stranger to nursing home abuse and neglect. A recent report even stated that Illinois is in the top five states with the most reported number of nursing home abuse and neglect cases. It is our duty and privilege to help you fight for your loved one's rights and protection!
