Flint Nursing Home Lawyers: Lawsuits & Settlements

Flint Nursing Home Neglect Lawyer

Our Flint nursing home abuse lawyers represent nursing home residents and their families in lawsuits against nursing homes and residential care facilities. There are strict laws and regulations to protect the safety and welfare of these residents. Unfortunately, nursing home patients do not always receive appropriate care and the results can be severe and are often deadly.

When an elderly person moves into a nursing home, the family places a tremendous amount of trust in the facility and its staff. If the patient is injured or dies due to improper treatment and neglect, that person or his or her family should explore taking action against the facility.

  • Failure to turn or move immobile patients
  • Failure to bathe patients

  • Failure to use bed rails
  • Verbal abuse of residents
