When we place an elderly family member in a nursing home or assisted living facility, we trust that they’ll be properly cared for in a safe facility, free from harm and abuse.
Michigan law requires nursing homes and care facilities to maintain certain standards. Standards that ensure residents are safe, secure, and receive appropriate care and attention.
Unfortunately, not all are facilities live up to these standards and we intervene, on behalf of the families, to hold the facility accountable. When a resident is harmed in a care facility, they may have legal liability for the resulting injuries.
Nursing home injuries can result from negligence and inattention, such as:
- Bed Sores and Pressure Ulcers
- Physical, Mental, or Sexual Abuse
- Improper Care
- Medication Errors
If your parent or loved one has sustained injuries as the result of negligence by a nursing home or long-term care facility, contact us for a free consultation.
