At Buckfire & Buckfire P.C we have the most experienced Michigan nursing home injury lawyers. We represent residents, patients and their families against nursing homes who have been negligent. Often, patients suffer injuries when dropped from Hoyer Lifts during transfers at the nursing home. These injuries are completely preventable, but frequently happen because the medical staff is careless while using the lift when the resident is not properly secured in the lift.

If your loved one suffered a fall from a Hoyer lift, you should family should seek a nursing home negligence lawsuit against the facility for the injuries suffered by the fall. These lawsuits often result in substantial settlements because of the serious nature of the injuries and the lengthy course of medical treatment and rehabilitation.
