Our Michigan lawyers have significant experience when it comes to filing a lawsuit against a Michigan adult foster care home (AFC) on behalf of an injured resident and their family. Many times, we are able to settle a claim before ever filing a lawsuit, but on occasions the best way to achieve the maximum settlement is to file a lawsuit at the courthouse.
There are several things that our award winning attorneys do before we file a neglect lawsuit against a Michigan adult foster care home. First, we fully investigate the case to prove that the injury or death was a direct result of the AFC’s negligent nursing staff. This requires extensive examination of medical records involved in the resident’s care as well as any investigation reports by a responsible public health agency. Our Michigan lawyers will collect and gather all that information for you.
Once that information is collected and reviewed, we will be able to determine if negligence did take place, and the specific acts of abuse, neglect or negligence that caused you or your loved one to suffer injuries at the home.
If it determined that neglect and abuse was present, and due to that negligence injury or death resulted, a lawsuit is filed against the Michigan adult foster care home.
However, in Michigan there are very strict time limits and procedural guidelines for filing a case. Unlike many other states, a “Notice of Intent To File Suit” must be sent to all negligent parties (the facility and negligent staff) before a lawsuit can even be filed in the court. Due to this reason and the strict time limitations for filing a claim, it is really important that if you or your loved one suspects that injuries or death was a result of abuse and neglect, that you speak to one of our expert and qualified Michigan adult foster care home lawyers to discuss your case and learn your rights. Missing a deadline could mean that your case could be barred forever and you will not be able to collect compensation.
