Fighting For Victims Of Nursing Home Negligence

Nursing homes and medical facilities are entrusted with the care of their residents and patients. When their negligence hurts the people they are supposed to help, they must be held accountable. At Becker, Schroader & Chapman, we have extensive experience in nursing home negligence and medical malpractice cases. We focus on righting the wrongs that have been done to victims and their families.

Our firm represents clients in Granite City and throughout the Metro East, as well as Central and Southern Illinois. With a combined 100 years of experience, our attorneys fight for individuals and their families in all types of nursing home negligence and medical malpractice cases.

Was Your Loved One Injured In A Nursing Home?

Elderly people in nursing homes need the services and assistance provided in those facilities. If you or a loved one has instead been neglected and injured, we can help you bring a lawsuit against the staff or the nursing home company.

We can help you with cases involving:

  • Bedsores
  • Falls (Improper use of bed rails)
  • Malnutrition or dehydration
  • Prescription errors
  • Improperly secured doors
  • Inadequate security

We will investigate whether the facility has been negligent in under staffing, providing inadequate resident supervision, or improperly training staff. Whatever the causes of the mistreatment, we will help you fight back.

Did Medical Malpractice Occur In Your Case?

Mistakes can occur at all stages in the medical system: during a checkup, in the issuing or filling of a prescription, during surgery or surgery preparation, and in post-operative care.

If you or your loved one has been the victim of a medical professional's error, we can help you seek justice.

We can help you with cases involving:

  • Failure to diagnose
  • Medication errors
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Incorrect surgery performed
  • Postoperative infections
  • Birth injuries

Whether your case involves negligence by a doctor, nurse, or pharmacist, we will help you protect your rights and seek the compensation you need.

If you have lost a loved one due to a health provider's negligence or error, we can help you pursue a wrongful death claim for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and loss of family income.
