Neglect -- one of the most common forms of nursing home abuse

One of the more concerning issues in Illinois, as in the greater American society today, is the neglect of elderly patients in care facilities. The neglect of the elderly is considered to be one of the more prevalent forms of nursing home abuse. When a patient does not get the necessary standard of care, it constitutes neglect.

Nursing home abuse: Lack of care alleged in death of resident

The legal estate of a former occupant of an Illinois care facility has filed a civil suit against the facility, claiming lack of care resulted in the death of the occupant. The lawsuit claims that the deceased became dehydrated and malnourished. She also developed a urinary tract infection. These symptoms are all indicative of a lack of care and constitutes nursing home abuse.

Car accidents: Negligence may result in civil claims

When the negligence or recklessness of a driver of a motor vehicle results in injuries to other road users, the driver may find him or herself answering to personal injury or wrongful death claims. Many Illinois personal injury lawyers assist the victims of car accidents in the filing civil claims, based upon a contingency fee basis. In short, this means that there will be no initial costs to the client.

Bedsores may point to nursing home abuse and neglect

When elderly loved ones become incapable of caring for themselves, a nursing home is often the best option to choose. Generally one expects a care facility to provide patients with a reasonable standard of care. Unfortunately, regular reports of nursing home abuse and/or neglect portrays a completely different picture.  

Illinois focus now on car accidents due to distracted driving

Distracted driving is not a new concept. Car accidents due to drivers being distracted by their passengers, the radio or even eating and drinking have been happening for many years,. However Illinois officials are of the opinion that smartphones are the most dangerous distraction of all.
