How much time does it take for a nursing home case in Michigan?

A Michigan nursing home case can take several years from start to finish.  The first step in the process is for our legal and medical team to get all of the nursing home records and hospital records.  If there was a death involved, we need to get the Death Certificate and an Autopsy Report if an autopsy was performed.

After a careful review of the records, we determine if there is a basis for filing a lawsuit.  When there is case to be filed, a Notice of Intent To File Suit must be served on all potentially responsible nursing homes and medical providers.  This is required by Michigan statute.   The statute requires a 180 waiting period after the notice is served before a lawsuit can be filed.  During his period of time, we are putting together the case to ready for litigation.

Once the lawsuit is filed, a nursing home case generally takes one to two years to litigate depending on the county where the lawsuit was filed.  In some cases, the parties will agree to meet very early in the process to see if the case can be settled before spending too much time and money on litigation matters.  These meetings, or facilitations, are often productive and lead to excellent settlements.
