Legal Answers
26 Questions Answered

Q. How long after the settlement does a person get the papers to sign for the settlement check?
A: The length of time to actually get possession of a settlement check can depend on a number of factors including, but not limited to: parties contributing to settlement, if Medicare is involved, if a court needs to approve settlement and satisfaction of any medical lien holders. Some states have enacted legislation that requires insurance companies to issue settlement drafts within a certain amount of time following the signature of settlement paperwork. If you have an attorney, I would suggest that you contact him or her to ask about the status of the draft. Good luck.
Q. My father was injured in a nursing home. Can I ask them for his medical records?
A: It depends of if you have power of attorney. If you do, you can request a copy of his records. If your father is alert and coherent, he may request a copy of his chart. Getting copies of medical records can be helpful in determining both how an incident occurred and what type of safeguards were or should have been in place to prevent an incident from occurring. Good luck to you. Jonathan
Q. My parent is at a care facility and I've witnessed what I think is neglect of another person who lives there.
A: If you witness abuse of a patient at a nursing home you may report the incident to the police and / or the Illinois Department of Public Health. Reporting an episode may help deter abuse of other patients. You will not be able to initiate a lawsuit against the facility because you do not have standing to pursue a case. Only a family member or appointed guardian may initiate a case on behalf of the mistreated individual.
Q. My husband is having a surgery soon that Workmans comp approved, however we have heard nothing about TTD pay?
A: You are referring to TTD or temporary total disability payments while your husband is temporarily impaired from performing his tasks due to his employment related injury. Under Illinois law, TTD provides for two-thirds of the employees average weekly wage when a physician deems him or her unable to perform their job-related tasks. If the insurance company is not making these TTD payments, I would contact the adjuster and ask why they are not being made. In some situations, the insurance company may not have confirmation from the treating physician and in others, they may be disputing the employee's inability to work. If you have an attorney, they can petition the commission to get the TTD benefits reinstated as well as past benefits that are unpaid.
Q. I am seeking advice on how to go forward with a suit for professional sexual misconduct by a drug counselor in a halfway
A: Sexual misconduct by a staff member at a halfway house or other type of treatment facility should not occur. In order to have a case against the facility, you will need to show that the facility knew or should have know of the behavior of this individual. For example, if the individual had acted similarly with other residents and the facility failed to take any intervention, such a situation would likely be deemed actual notice of the behavior. In other situations, perpetrators may have a record of similar incidents at other facilities. If the facility failed to conduct an adequate background search, they may also be exposing themselves to civil damages. You should consult with an attorney who can better address the circumstances in your case.
Q. My husband was in a car accident over the weekend, but he was driving the company car.
A: The answer to your questions depends on if your husband is covered under workers compensation related to his job. The crux of the issue will depend on his employment status: if he is an employee v. independent contractor and if he was 'in the course' of his employment at the time of the crash. If he indeed was in the course of his work (doing something for the company) then he would be covered under workers compensation which provides for: medical expenses, time lost from work and permanency. These determinations can be very fact-specific, so you should consult with an attorney who can better advise based on your circumstance. Good luck.
Q. I suspect my Dad might be being given too much medication at his senior home
A: Over medication of nursing home patients is a major problem. In some instances facilities intentionally provide the medication to sedate patients and make them easier to care for. In other instances, the over-medication may be less intentional-- in either respect, the over-medication of nursing home patients is a problem and is unacceptable. Determining if you should file a lawsuit against a facility is something that needs to be discussed with your family and an attorney. Unfortunately, there are many errors made with respect to the care of patients, but they may not necessarily require merit the filing of a nursing home negligence lawsuit as the damages may not merit the investment of time and money. Obviously, a determination needs to be made to see how your father is doing. Good luck to you.
Q. Can I file a wrongful death lawsuit even it if's just my aunt and not my mother that died?
A: Usually, immediate family members have the right to file a wrongful death lawsuit. Your ability or standing to file such a case will depend on if there are other immediate family member and if your aunt left a will. If your aunt left a will, the executor of the will would likely be the person who is entitled to initiate a case. If you were close with your aunt, you may have grounds to file a lawsuit. If there are other family members who also assert a right to file a case, a judge would likely have a hearing prior to the distribution of any settlement proceeds. As you can tell, these situations become complex and it is best to meet with an attorney who has experience with wrongful death litigation who can help advise you of your legal rights and options under Illinois law. Good luck to you.
Q. I suspect that the care facility is neglecting my Mother.
A: I am sorry to hear about your concern. Illinois recently passed a law that allows families to place a camera in the room of a loved one in a nursing home. Read more here http://progressillinois.com/news/content/2015/10/06/nursing-home-cameras-ensuring-safety-loved-ones
