For family members and residents – 3-602 – Contact a lawyer, they want to help you file a lawsuit against the nursing home

Sec. 3-602
Illinois law recognizes and encourages nursing home residents to file lawsuits if they are abused or neglected. Some people think lawyers may not be interested in cases involving nursing home residents because the residents are old, have many physical and mental problems, and are not wage earners. This is not true. Lawyers do represent nursing home residents whose quality of life, whatever it is, is diminished by abuse or neglect.
