Michigan Nursing Home Infections & Sepsis Lawyers
Our Michigan nursing home lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle cases involving injuries and death from infections and sepsis in hospitals, nursing homes and assisted living centers in Michigan. Sepsis infection is a severe illness in which the bloodstream is overwhelmed by bacteria. Common places where an infection might start include the bowel, kidneys, the lungs, and the skin. Each year, over 750,000 cases of sepsis are reported, according to eJustice. The sepsis in these reported individuals accounted for 215,000 deaths despite the sepsis treatment available. A resident who suffers from an infection or sepsis does have legal rights under Michigan law.
Sepsis infection can vary but bedsores from neglectful nursing home care can eventually cause this dangerous bacterial condition and an elder person is more susceptible to sepsis due to their worn out immune system not being able to fight the bacterial infection.
Depending on the individual, symptoms of sepsis infection can range. When elders in nursing homes develop bedsores, largely because of nursing home neglect, they will sometimes develop sepsis symptoms. Some of these symptoms include:
- Skin Rash
- Rapid Heartbeat
Many of times under qualified, under trained, underpaid nursing home workers, sometimes with previous records of abuse and neglect, are caring for the elders in nursing homes or health care facilities. Severe bedsores causing sepsis, and even wrongful death, is a serious issue and continue to be reported.
Our Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C.

These lawsuits seek compensation for the resident and the family for the injuries suffered. They also serve to prevent such a tragedy from happening to another resident in the future.
