Injuries at nursing homes in Illinois allow lawyers to use statutory remedies not otherwise available to negligent actions generally. The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act provides for extraordinary remedies including actual out-of-pocket costs and attorney’s fees when a plaintiff is successful in bringing an action versus a nursing home that has injured or wronged the plaintiff. These two valuable tools in the arsenal of weapons that can be used to combat the increasing abuse our loved ones are undergoing at nursing homes are remedies our firm incorporates in nearly all of its nursing home litigation matters.
When a new matter is being investigated by our firm, the Law Offices of Craig L. Manchik & Associates, P.C., we determine first if there was an injury caused by the wrongdoing of the nursing home or its staff. If the injury is such a significant nature our office may undertake representation. Each and every significant injury sustained as a result of negligence or wrongdoing on the part of the nursing home or it’s employees should be investigated to determine if a valid cause of action exists. Please contact our office if you have any questions whatsoever relative to injury matters. Our law practice centers around catastrophic personal injuries and wrongful death cases. The majority of our cases have been referred to our firm because of our years of experience and past success.
