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.

Infected Bed Sore in Michigan Nursing Home

Our Michigan nursing home attorneys have significant experience in representing residents with infected bed sores and pressure sores.  Residents develop pressure sores because the nursing home staff failed to take the proper precautions to prevent and treat the sore at the early stages.  Many residents are at high risk for developing bed sores due to a number of different factors and medical conditions.  It is the position of the nursing home staff to assess the patient and develop a care plan to prevent them from developing.

Infected bed sores are a life threatening condition.   Most bed sore infections are sepsis infections, which are caused by bacteria in the bloodstream. These bacteria frequently enter the body through open wounds, like bed sores, that are not properly diagnosed and treated early on in the process.  Nursing home patients are often more vulnerable to a sepsis infection because their immune systems are worn down. Sepsis is a serious illness, which in severe cases can lead to death. Other serious medical conditions can be caused by sepsis as well, including, organ failure.

Infected Bed Sore in Michigan Nursing HomeInfected Bed Sore Symptoms

Many infected bed sores have the following symptoms:

  • Fever above 101.3 F (38.5 C) or below 95 F (35 C)
  • Heart rate higher than 90 beats a minute
  • Respiratory rate higher than 20 breaths a minute
  • Probable or confirmed infection
  • Slough appearance

The nursing home staff, including both doctors and nurses, should be highly qualified and able to identify and diagnose these symptoms immediately.  If untreated or not properly treated, the bed sore infection will worsen and cause significant injury or even death. (more…)
