Our Michigan group home lawyers filed a group home in Brownstown, Michigan on behalf of a resident. He suffered serious burn injuries to his back and buttocks at the facility. The burns caused significant damage to his skin and nerves and he required substantial medical care.
The 46 year old resident lived at the Lillian Manor of Browstown in Wayne County, Michigan. He had epilepsy and had borderline mental status and could not live independently. He moved into the group home so that he could receive proper supervision and care.
On or about August 7, 2012, the resident was observed to have a "wet looking shirt" by a staff member. Upon closer inspection, it was discovered that he had significant burns over his back, buttocks, and legs. The group home claims that it does not know how the burns occcurred or when the burns occured. However, it is undisputed that injuries occurred whil under the care and supervision at the group home.
Our client received treatment for his injuries at several medical facilities, including the Detroit Receiving Hospital Burn Center. He has been left with significant scars and has a number of disfigurmenents. His skin is still sensitive to pressure and water.
The lawsuit was filed in the Wayne County Circuit Court in Detroit, Michigan. It seeks compensation for the pain, suffering, and disfigurment caused by the burn injuries. It also seeks payment of medical expenses and costs. No trial date has been set by the court.
