    Answered . I am not licensed in IL and can provide you only with general advice. You need to contact a local nursing home malpractice lawyer to make sure that your statutory period has not run, and to determine whether you are the person who would have standing to bring such an action. There are specific laws that apply to nursing homes and wrongful death in most states. Call right away to get specific information.
