Bed sore settlements in Michigan nursing home lawsuits are often substantial because of the serious harm caused by the condition. Our nursing home neglect lawyers frequently obtain sizable settlements for the resident. In cases in which a resident dies from an infected bed sore, we file a wrongful death lawsuit on behalf of the surviving family members.
A nursing home must assess a resident for the risk of developing a bed sore at the time of admission to the facility. The initial assessment is performed to determine whether the resident has evidence of skin breakdown, blisters, or any other problem with skin integrity. If a resident enters the facility without a bedsore and later develops one in the nursing home, it is often due to neglect and the failure to follow the resident care plan.
When this occurs, it gives rise to the filing of a nursing home neglect lawsuit. These bed sore lawsuits seek compensation for the injury and harm caused by the bedsore. The settlement value of a nursing home bedsore lawsuit is based upon the facts of each individual case, but includes the:
-Severity of bedsore
-Treatment used for the bedsore
-Pain and suffering caused by the bedsore
-Any disfigurements caused by the bedsore
-Medical expenses and bills related to the bedsore
