Spinal cord injuries are serious, life-altering ordeals. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury in the nursing home , you and your family are now faced with financial burdens and increased medical needs. A spinal cord injury often results in a loss of mobility and, depending on the location, can leave you permanently paralyzed.

At Harvey L. Walner & Associates  we don't work for the money, we work for you. We can negotiate with doctors, insurance companies, even Medicare/Medicaid to help you keep more of the settlement and recover a fair compensation for your spinal cord injury.

If you believe a loved one could be suffering from abuse or neglect, you do have options available to you. First off, The Illinois Department of Public Health is in charge of enforcing the Nursing Home Care Act throughout the state of Illinois, and all facilities that fall under the definition of a long term care facility are required to comply with the Act.  First off you can file a complaint with the long-term care ombudsman, who is legally required to investigate your complaint and ensure that the facility complies with the acts required.  If a long-term care facility violates the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act and fails to comply can result in a more in-depth investigation, fines, and other penalties for any violations found.

To learn more about the options you have when you suspect that your family member could be the victim of nursing home abuse and neglect, we recommend consulting one of our experienced attorneys.
