Steven Malman Law Assists the Elderly
Chicago-based law firm channels its efforts into settling a record number of nursing home-related cases in 2011.
The Law Offices of Steven Malman & Associates PC announced that it successfully settled a record number of nursing home-related cases in 2011.
Steven Malman’s diligent law team targeted elder care facilities guilty of neglect, physical abuse and misconduct.
In response to the influx of nursing home-related suits, Steven Malman Law designated a whole team of lawyers to specialize in such cases.
“Such casework has become a huge part of our firm,” according to founding partner Steven Malman.“ There are over 5,000 nursing homes in Illinois and the majority is centered in and around Chicago. They’re run by a handful of families and large corporations that manage these facilities as cheaply as possible to generate the biggest profit, and as a result, in many cases, the patients are truly suffering.”
The law firm blamed drastic Medicare and Medicaid cuts as the culprit to the suffering of the elderly. Steven Malman explained, the insurance cuts have forced the nursing homes to minimize their expenses; causing nursing homes to assist the elderly in the most thrifty manner.
Poor training, insufficient supplies and generally inadequate care have left elderly patients to suffer everything from bed sores and malnutrition to physical and sexual abuse.
“This really stems from a lack of money provided by the government,” Steven Malman said. “But the truth is, most of these homes are putting profitability first.”
After learning about the “ongoing problem” at many Chicago-based nursing homes, Steven Malman Law created its Nursing Home Team, an act that pushed the law firm to the top in terms of nursing home-related lawsuits filed and successfully settled.
Steven Malman Law is ferociously continuing in its attack against poorly run nursing facilities and is hopeful to dispel of the misconduct in the coming years.
“This is about the proper care of our elderly parents and grandparents, and justice,” Steven Malman said. “It’s not going to be so easy for these profit-first managers anymore.”
