Charleston, IL Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers
Fighting for Victims of Elder Abuse & Neglect Since 1996
Our senior citizens deserve to be treated with kindness, dignity, and respect. Nursing homes are supposed to provide a safe haven for our aging parents and elderly relatives, providing them with healthcare management and onsite nurses and doctors to provide needed attention and care.
Despite strict state and federal guidelines that nursing home facilities are required to follow, caregivers and administrative staff commit egregious wrongs. Each year, thousands of senior citizens suffer abuse, neglect, and exploitation in nursing homes and elder care facilities.
At The Tapella & Eberspacher Law Firm, we believe in standing up for victims of abuse. Someone needs to fight on behalf of seniors who have suffered harm by the very people entrusted with their care. With over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience and the resources to face off against any opponent, our Charleston, IL nursing home abuse attorneys pursue real results that change our clients’ lives and help prevent others from suffering similar fates.
Call (217) 394-5885 today for caring and knowledgeable insight regarding your nursing home abuse case. Your consultation is free and strictly confidential.
