We have obtained significant settlements and jury verdicts for our clients throughout the entire State of Michigan. In fact, we settle over 97% of our medical negligence and nursing home abuse and neglect cases before they ever go to trial. We can do the same for you. We use our experience, skill and knowledge accomplish these results. Below is a representative sample of our past successes:
There is no set formula used to determine the amount of a nursing home abuse settlement. Many people research for “average settlement amounts,” but there is really no such average.

We are often asked this question when contacted by a new client and it is a difficult one to answer. Many lawyers will tell you an unrealistically high amount so that you hire their firm, only to be disappointed later that the result did not meet your expectations.
We believe the best approach is to tell our clients that they have a strong case, but we will not know the actual worth until we have reviewed medical records and determined liability in the case. This is the honest approach and most clients would prefer honesty over false promises.
Our lawyers will give you an approximate, realistic settlement range for your case once a full evaluation has been performed. We discuss our settlement strategies with you and get your input so you are fully satisfied with your compensation award. There is never a settlement without your approval.
To find out if you are entitled to a nursing home abuse settlement, contact our office today to speak with a top-ranked attorney. We charge no legal fees whatsoever unless you receive a settlement. If your case is unsuccessful for any reason, then you owe us nothing. We put that in writing for you.
