Our Michigan nursing home wrongful death attorney investigate cases on behalf of the families of nursing home residents who died due to neglect or abuse at the nursing home. When nursing homes fail to provide the best possible care for our loved ones, the consequences can be tragic. Often family members grieving over the loss of a loved one due to neglect at a nursing home or assisted living facility, seek our legal advice.
During this tragic time many emotions are experienced by the families of a nursing home resident who died. These emotions include anger, sorrow, and feelings of betrayal from the nursing home facility that they entrusted to care for their loved one. Two things are usually sought by family members when they contact our Michigan nursing home neglect attorneys. They want justice for themselves and the victim of nursing home neglect, by seeking compensation for the loss of their loved one. In addition, they want to prevent other families from going through the same experience by preventing another resident from an unexpected death at the nursing home.
