Skilled Advocacy For Victims Of Nursing Home Abuse Or Neglect

Families have a right to expect that their loved ones will receive appropriate levels of care and medical treatment from nursing homes, assisted living centers and other elderly care facilities. Unfortunately, the quality of the care provided at some nursing homes is not always acceptable and instances of neglect and abuse can result in serious and even fatal injuries for vulnerable adults.

At the law firm of John J. Hopkins & Associates, our lawyers and staff believe that victims of nursing home neglect and abuse, as well as their families, deserve experienced and dedicated representation. Give us a call for a no-cost consultation about your circumstances. From our office in Alton, we serve clients in the Metro East area and across southern Illinois.

For nearly 40 years, we have helped those who have endured mistreatment and injury at the hands of negligent nursing home staff. Our attorneys work hard to hold care providers accountable for their actions.

What Caused The Injury In Your Case?

Many nursing homes provide service that is up to reasonable standards and our firm thoroughly evaluates all potential claims to ensure that we do not pursue cases that are frivolous. When instances of nursing home abuse or negligence have occurred, however, a successful lawsuit can provide closure, accountability and justice.

Common nursing home errors and neglect may involve:

  • Medication errors
  • Assault and sexual assault
  • Dehydration and malnutrition
  • Bedsores
  • Infections
  • Falls

Many cases of nursing home abuse and neglect happen as the result of poorly trained or insufficient staffing. Patients are left for a long time without care and their health is allowed to deteriorate. While actual abuse does occur and should be taken seriously, many instances of nursing home injuries occur due to neglect or incompetence.
