Holding Home Health Care Agencies Accountable

Having to turn to in-home services to care for a close family member is hard enough. But it becomes truly terrible when the provider you pay and allow into your home fails so severely that your loved one is harmed.

At Steinberg Goodman & Kalish, we understand your outrage and sadness at this turn of events. Lawsuits against home health care agencies for abuse or neglect are possible, and we can help you evaluate your options for bringing a compensation claim. From our offices in the Loop, we represent clients throughout the Chicago area.

What Happened and Who Is Responsible?

In Illinois, home health care neglect happens far more than it should. Unconscionable instances of abuse, including physical or sexual abuse, are also far too common. Just as in nursing facilities, the consequences of this can be devastating.

When you contact us, we will quickly gather the facts to shine a light on what happened and identify the parties responsible for causing harm. For example, if your loved one suffered a fall or falls, we will investigate to determine what the fall risk was and what steps the home health agency took to prevent them.

The same is true of other types of harm. If a medication error occurred, it’s important to be clear about which medications a home health aide was authorized to administer in the first place.

Our goal is not to demonize home health aides. In many cases, these workers do not receive proper training in how to do their jobs and are thrust into situations they never should have had to face. In such cases, it is the agency, not the front-line worker, that bears the greater responsibility.

We will investigate to identify who is responsible for your condition and be available to you whenever you need us as your case progresses.
