Nursing Home Neglect

We fight for what’s right.

At Michigan Accident & Injury Law, we understand how hard the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility can be. Many times, you may spend a great deal of time researching the best facility to place your loved one, only to have that facility fail to meet the appropriate standard of care. When an injury or unexpected death happens, you may feel angry, frustrated and betrayed by the nursing home you trusted. Too many Michigan nursing home residents are victims of nursing home abuse or neglect. Even more troubling is that many Michigan nursing home residents who do fall victim to nursing home abuse or neglect do not report it.

 

It’s important to look for warning signs of abuse when visiting a loved one in a nursing home or assisted living facility. These signs can range from complaints of physical injuries and bedsores to poor hygiene, unattended soiled bedding and malnourishment or dehydration. When you suspect that abuse or neglect to a loved one has occurred at a nursing home or assisted living facility, there are two types of actions that can be taken against the facility: you can file a complaint with the State of Michigan licensing board and also file a civil lawsuit against the nursing home for compensation for the injury or unexpected death that occurred.

 

You may have questions about what signs to look for when you suspect nursing home neglect. You may have questions about what actions constitute neglect. You may have questions about taking the first steps toward considering a case.

 

Let Michigan Accident & Injury Law be your guide to what’s right.
