Chicago Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
An individual and the family of a person living in a nursing home expect the person to be treated with dignity and receive the appropriate care. The aging process does not include nursing home abuse. Nursing home facilities need to create and implement a plan for the person who is placed in their care.
Failure to properly attend the needs of its residents is found in facilities across the country. There has been an influx of corporations that are purely motivated by profit. Nursing staff is trimmed. Less-experienced staff, who will work for lower wages, are hired. More abuse, neglect and patient injury is being realized.
Families are in the best position to recognize signs of nursing home negligence. The symptoms sometimes present themselves gradually. Warning signs include withdrawal from friends and family, loss of weight, appetite loss, anger or change in demeanor, and unsanitary conditions. The Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers have nursing home attorneys who have been recognized as nursing home litigation leaders. Nursing homes that are responsible for abusive or poor care are held accountable.
Chicago Birth Injury Lawyers
Birth injuries are often permanent. Lifelong therapy, counseling, and special education needs may be required. Getting an attorney involved early is important in birth injury cases to primarily preserve evidence and records.
Labor induction errors have caused permanent injuries and death. Misuse of the drug, pitocin, is often the cause. When not properly administered, serious risk for both the fetus and the mother are prevalent. Close monitoring to detect fetal distress or warning signs of the mother is required. When the dosage is too high, the mother is subject to possible cardiac arrhythmia, rupture of the uterus, subarachnoid hemorrhage or death.
Each of these can present severe consequences to the child yet to be born. In addition, overdose can slow the fetal heart rate, cause a lack of oxygen to the fetus, incite liver failure or kill the baby. These things are possible, even if no harm is experienced by the mother. A surviving child may be left with brain, liver or heart damage. Cerebral palsy, caused by lack of oxygen, is possible.
About half of pregnant women opt to have an epidural injection that is used to reduce discomfort and pain. The risk is low when administered correctly. When an anesthesiologist makes an error while administering the pain blocker, serious injury to mother and child is possible. Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers handle these difficult cases at no charge to the family. In these types of cases, a fee is never charged unless a financial recovery is made for the client.

How Long Do I Have to Bring a Pensacola Personal Injury Lawsuit and Wrongful Death Claim
Individual claims depend on the type of case and which state it occurred. For example, if an auto accident occurred in Pensacola, Florida, then the injured person would have four years to file a lawsuit for injuries not resulting in death, but a two-year limitation period if the auto accident caused death. If the car accident was caused by a governmental entity, claims procedures must be filed six months before a lawsuit is filed, with a maximum limitation period of three years. In professional negligence cases resulting in injuries or death, the limitation period in Florida can be as short as two years and there are certain procedures that must be followed before the lawsuit can be filed.
There are numerous factors that determine how short of a period you have to file a pensacola injury lawsuit, including what state the injury or death occurred, the type of injury sustained, whether the opposing side is an individual, company or governmental entity, when you became aware, or should have become aware of the injury.
The most important thing is that you immediately seek legal advice when you become aware of a potential injury, even if you decide not to hire a lawyer. We will provide you a confidential and free consult, even if you decide not to hire us. This way you at least can determine your rights, and how long you have to pursue those rights.
