How much time does it take for a nursing home case in Michigan?

A Michigan nursing home case can take several years from start to finish.  The first step in the process is for our legal and medical team to get all of the nursing home records and hospital records.  If there was a death involved, we need to get the Death Certificate and an Autopsy Report if an autopsy was performed.

After a careful review of the records, we determine if there is a basis for filing a lawsuit.  When there is case to be filed, a Notice of Intent To File Suit must be served on all potentially responsible nursing homes and medical providers.  This is required by Michigan statute.   The statute requires a 180 waiting period after the notice is served before a lawsuit can be filed.  During his period of time, we are putting together the case to ready for litigation.

Once the lawsuit is filed, a nursing home case generally takes one to two years to litigate depending on the county where the lawsuit was filed.  In some cases, the parties will agree to meet very early in the process to see if the case can be settled before spending too much time and money on litigation matters.  These meetings, or facilitations, are often productive and lead to excellent settlements.

Who receives settlement money in a nursing home case?

Our Michigan nursing home lawyers file lawsuits on behalf of injured nursing home residents and their families.  The cases are brought to seek compensation for injury and harm done to the resident due to the negligence of the nursing home staff.  These cases often result in substantial settlements.

Nursing home neglect and abuse cases are often the result of:

  • Pressure sores, bed sores, decubitus ulcers
  • Infections, including gangrene
  • Unexplained falls resulting in broken bones
  • Medication errors and mistakes
  • Sepsis, dehydration, and infections
  • Wandering and elopement from the facility
  • Death

Families who pursue these cases usually have two purposes in filing a lawsuit.  First, they want to get a fair settlement for their loved.  Second, they want the lawsuit to help prevent an injury from occurring to another resident in the future.  Both of these purposes are often satisfied in a nursing home negligence claims.

In a case that does not involve death, the settlement goes to the nursing home resident directly.  A portion of the settlement is often used to re-pay Medicare for monies that the agency spent related to the injuries.  Health insurers also frequently assert liens on a case for this same purpose.  When there is a high lien for insurance benefits paid, the total settlement amount is usually higher to account for money that will be paid  to an agency.  Special trusts are often set up before a settlement is paid to a resident in order to protect all government benefits.

In cases involving a death, the settlement funds are paid to heirs of the resident.  This is either pursuant to a Will, to the agreement of family members, or by determination of a judge.  These are referred to as wrongful death proceeds and there are strict requirements that must be complied with before the funds can be paid out.

Statute Of Limitations For Michigan Nursing Home Lawsuits

There are strict time deadlines for filing nursing home neglect and abuse lawsuits in Michigan.  These include cases for resident falls, bed sores, decubitus ulcers, wandering and elopement, and all other types of nursing home negligence.  The failure to file a case in a timely manner will forever destroy the right to sue the skilled nursing care facility.

In Michigan, the statute of limitations for a medical negligence case against a nursing home is two years after the negligent act which caused injury or harm to the resident.  In rare circumstances in which the claim involves ordinary negligence, it can be extended to three years. In cases involving unlicensed medical facilities and many assisted living facilities it can be up to three years after the injury.

When the injury involves death at the time of negligence or causes a death later on, the period can often be extended if a probate estate had not been opened.  This can give the family of a deceased nursing home resident additional time to file a wrongful death lawsuit.  These cases seek compensation for the loss of society and companionship of the loved one who was the victim of neglect.

If you suspect that a family member have been the victim of nursing home neglect, you should contact our law office immediately to discuss your case.  We will review all of the medical records and perform our own investigation to find the truth.  If there was abuse or neglect, we will file a lawsuit before the expiration of the statute of limitations.  Call us now at (800) 606-1717 or simply submit this contact form and we will get back to you quickly.
