Our Michigan nursing home lawyers recently settled a lawsuit against a skilled nursing facility in Michigan. The suit was filed after a nursing home resident died from a fall in a transportation van. She was being transported from the nursing home to a medical appointment off-site at the time of the incident.
The resident was placed in the transportation but fell out of her wheelchair during the ride and struck her head. She also suffered a fractured hip from the fall. The hip fracture required surgery, but due to complications during the surgery, the resident passed away.
The lawsuit alleged that the CNA responsible for securing the resident in the van was not properly trained and did not properly secure the resident or her wheelchair in the van. The suit also alleged that the nursing home management failed to properly train the CNA on the proper methods of securing patients and their wheelchairs in transportation vans. A Michigan Wrongful Death Lawsuit was filed on behalf of the children of the decedent. The parties agreed to a confidential settlement prior to trial.
