WRONGFUL DEATH

Wrongful death refers to a type of case in which someone else’s wrongful or negligent conduct results in untimely death.  In an Illinois wrongful death lawsuit, a family member acts as a representative for purposes of filing a lawsuit and recovering money damages for the death of their loved one.  Damages in wrongful death lawsuits include medical bills, pain and suffering, funeral expenses.  They also include the loss of love, companionship and affection each family member would have received from their deceased loved one. Although no monetary compensation can make up for the death of a loved one, bringing a wrongful death lawsuit is an important step towards gaining justice when you and your family have been wronged.   Please contact the Illinois wrongful death attorneys at Gibson Lewis for the one-on-one attention that your case requires.

NURSING HOME NEGLIGENCE

Your family members and loved ones in nursing homes deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.  With the aging population and expanding numbers of residents in extended care facilities, there are a greater number of cases of abuse and neglect.  While federal and state laws, like the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, exist to protect our loved ones in these facilities, the unfortunate reality is that nursing homes fail to protect their residents on a regular basis.  Common warning signs of abuse and neglect are: weight loss, unexplained bruises, wounds such as bedsores, and broken bones.  The elder abuse and nursing home negligence attorneys at Gibson Lewis have a long history representing residents of nursing homes.  We hold nursing homes and long-term care facilities responsible when they injure our family members and loved ones.
