I was honored to speak at the Chicago Bar Association (CBA) recently about nursing home abuse cases. I enjoyed the opportunity to share tips, strategies, and experiences with the Tort Litigation Committee’s member lawyers.
Insurance companies and corporate defense lawyers work very hard to prevent nursing homes from being held responsible when their carelessness injures the elderly or disabled. Wrongdoing in a nursing home, whether by doctors, nurses, or staff, can cause immense pain for patients and families. And the well-funded corporations behind the nursing homes will be aggressive in their defense. This is why it’s so important to choose an experienced nursing home attorney if you or a loved one has been harmed. You and your family should have somebody you trust working for you, who knows the ins and outs of nursing home litigation.
