Michigan Wrongful Death Lawyers

Our Michigan nursing home lawyers at Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. handle cases involving wrongful death of a patient in hospital, nursing home and assisted living centers in Michigan. Under Michigan law, family members who have lost a loved one in a nursing home do have means to file a lawsuit against the nursing home facility and nursing home doctors whose negligence in their care of the resident caused a premature and untimely death.

This type of lawsuit is brought under the Michigan Wrongful Death Statute. The wrongful death lawsuits seek compensation for the family members and aim to prevent such a tragedy from happening to another resident.  Typically, the family will select a personal representative to bring the lawsuit for them. Other family members still participate in the case and work together to assist the attorney.
