A Michigan nursing home lawsuit can be brought by the resident, a family member, or a court appointed representative like a guardian or conservator. If the resident is not competent to bring suit, then the lawsuit is typically filed by a son, daughter or sibling. In some circumstances, a court appointed guardian is appointed to file the case. In all circumstances, it is the rights of the resident that are being asserted in the case.
