Legal Answers
100 Questions Answered

Q. My teenage son got into a auto accident and was injured.
A: I am assuming your son was injured in this crash and that another driver was at fault. If that is true, I believe that you for your son if he is a minor may make a claim for his injuries.
Q. Do I have a case in that after filing for Medicaid Mother`s health rapidly failed, ending in death at a nursing home?
A: I suggest you contact the Illinois Department of Health and Human Services about this. It will investigate and file a report of its findings. Depending on what the cause of death was, you may want to consider whether to have an attorney review the hospital and nursing home records to see if there is a link between the neglect you describe and your mother's death.
Q. It was only by chance that I stopped to check in on my Mom
A: This occurrence should certainly get the attention of the Illinois Department of Health and Human services which you may contact to report this and file a complaint. The department will investigate this event. Whether there is a case to be brought under the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act depends on whether or not your mother suffered an injury. Was your mother able to explain how she was on the floor? I would notify the administrator of the nursing home if you haven't already about what happened to your mother and why it should never happen again.
Q. I wanted to thank you Kreismon, for his response. I've got my case number I'm sure that will help.
A: Yes. St. Louis would be the US District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri. With the case number and the defendants' names you should be able to get a status on the case.
Q. How do I check on a cases filed through a update alert via email.
A: I'm not quite sure about your question. But if has to do with a class action, state action or a case in the federal multi-district litigation (MDL) you should be able to follow the status if you have the caption of the case.
Q. Can I use transcripts from a Criminal case in a Civil case that I'm pursuing for damages?
A: You can use testimony given under oath in another venue or proceeding to impeach a witness or party. The transcripts you refer to may be available through the state's attorney's office who prosecuted the criminal case. At least someone there would be able to tell you who the court reporter was and how to obtain a copy of those transcripts.
Q. I suspect that the care facility is neglecting my Mother.
A: Under a law enacted in Illinois in August 2015, the Authorized Electronic Monitoring in Long-Term Facilities Act became effective on Jan. 1, 2016. Under its provisions, residents and their roommates have the right to consent to having a video or audio recording devices installed in their rooms. The cost of the installation and the equipment must be paid by the resident or the resident’s family or loved ones. Some refer to the video installed in nursing homes as “granny cams.” Illinois has become one of just a handful of states that allow the recording devices in nursing home residents’ rooms. The law is in response to growing numbers of cases of nursing home abuse that regularly takes place in these facilities at the expense of the most vulnerable of our citizens: the elderly, the ill and infirm. For more information see this link and page.
Q. My Dad came back from rehab with a bed sore and it's taken months to heal. Can we sue the place for neglect?
A: If the bed sore was caused or arose while your dad was rehabbing at this facility, he may have a good cause of action for negligence. I would encourage you to photograph the wound and to be sure that your dad is receiving medical care given the dangers of an open would has to infection. I assume he may be on oral antibiotics already. Some individuals who have other medical issues such as diabetes, kidney function disorders are very slow healers. The Illinois Nursing Home Care Act is designed to protect the rights of those who have been neglected, abused, etc. at Illinois nursing homes and long and short-term facilities. I cannot be certain that the facility your father rehabbed at would be one of the type of facility the act was designed to include. The Nursing Home Care Act allows nursing home residents a private statutory cause of action for actual damages and costs.
Q. How do I find the corporate office number for Primark LLC, a company that sells a memory-enhancement product called Prov
A: I think if you search on Google, Yahoo, etc. you will easily find the home page of the company that will list the company's home office and very likely a phone number. There's a Primark LLC registered in Delaware.
