The initial consultation in a #NursingHomeNegligence case serves two important purposes. First, it gives your Illinois nursing home abuse attorney an understanding of your case. Second, based on the information you provide, it allows your attorney to help you and your loved one understand your legal options.

Many Illinois #NursingHomeNeglect cases are settled outside of the courtroom. However, whether you should settle depends on the unique characteristics of your claim. Ultimately, your settlement should take into account the facts and circumstances of the case, the amount of the offer, and the personal decision of whether you want to settle or try the case. +Stephen Phillips

Almost all  #PersonalInjury cases require expert witnesses, including nursing home abuse cases.  Because direct evidence is often unavailable in claims of abuse or neglect, Chicago  #NursingHomeAbuseAttorneys often rely on testimony from medical experts to build a strong and persuasive case.

#ElderAbuse in assisted living facilities is not just a problem perpetuated by abusers, but by staff members and other professionals who fail to report abuse. Illinois requires and mandates under penalty of law that individuals report instances of nursing home or assisted living facility abuse or neglect to the Illinois Department of Public Health. +Stephen Phillips

While every #NursingHomeAbuse case is different depending on its unique facts and circumstances, at Phillips Law Offices we typically tell our clients to plan for a case taking 2-4 years. During that time, we may approach the nursing home or its insurance company and see if they are interested in settling the case, either through private mediation or mutual agreement. But remember, just because a nursing home offers a settlement, doesn’t mean it’s a fair one.

When you file an Illinois #NursingHomeNeglect case, the most important step you can take is to contact an experienced nursing home lawyer. While it can be tempting to file a case on your own to save money, doing so seriously jeopardizes your chance at obtaining compensation in even the most clear-cut cases of abuse and negligence. +Stephen Phillips

When an elderly person is the victim of #NursingHomeAbuse in Illinois, they may be entitled to several types of compensatory non-economic damages, including pain and suffering. In some cases, however, heirs of victims may also be able to seek damages. When a nursing home abuse victim dies, his or her immediate family members may be awarded compensation for loss of society, which represents the loss of love, companionship, and closeness they would have enjoyed had the victim survived. If someone you love has been injured or killed as the result of nursing home abuse or neglect, speak with a Chicago #NursingHomeAbuseAttorney today to discuss your options for legal action and financial recovery.

Abuse in assisted living centers and nursing homes can be especially difficult to identify as many elderly people suffer from dementia and communication difficulties that limit their ability to report #NursingHomeAbuse . Often times, it’s up to a perceptive family member – coupled with the help of a good #IllinoisNursingHomeAbuseLawyer – to put a stop to the abuse and hold the assisted living center accountable. +Stephen Phillips

There’s a common misconception that hiring a #lawyer for your #IllinoisNursingHomeAbuse case will cost a fortune. In fact, you won’t have to pay a dime until your #attorney wins your case. +Stephen Phillips

When we first met the lawyers of Phillips Law Office we were touched by their sincerity in the loss of our family member. They were proactive in investigating our case and made sure that we were informed every step of the way. Their attention to detail and thoroughness was impressive. This group of lawyers is a credit to their profession.

Steve Phillips and the entire Phillips law offices team were there for us at every step of the way during our tragedy. From the very beginning when my husband died unexpectantly following routine knee surgery until the day the case was finally resolved they not only protected me and my family but befriended us to help us through these stressful and wearing times. Steve showed genuine concern for me and my boys while he kept pushing the defendants to give us all the facts to show their negligence. If it weren’t for Phillips law offices the defendants would have covered up the truth. I strongly recommend Steve Phillips and his office to anyone with a serious injury claim.
