How to Win Your Michigan Nursing Home Lawsuit
The nursing home injury attorneys at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. frequently represent patients injured in a Michigan nursing home, residential care facility or hospital. Often times, victims of nursing home abuse and neglect can file claims when a facility or caretaker strayed so far from what is accepted as “standard” care and treatment that Michigan law considers them to have been “negligent.”
Some of the most common types of abuse and neglect that arise in Michigan nursing home lawsuits include:
- Bedsores and pressure sores causing Sepsis
- Medication mistakes and errors
- Dehydration and malnutrition
- Falls out of beds, chairs, and toilets
- Wandering away from the facility
- Choking and asphyxiation leading to death
- Bed rail entrapment leading to death
When an elderly person moves into a nursing home, the family places a tremendous amount of trust in the facility and its staff. If the patient is injured or dies due to improper treatment and neglect, that person or his or her family should explore taking action against the facility. At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our attorneys have had great success in handling and representing nursing home patients who have been abused or neglected while residing at a health care facility or home.
