Neglect and abuse at adult foster care homes is unfortunately not an uncommon occurrence. In fact, according to Michigan state officials, there have been over 122 AFC licensing violations since January 2000 in facilities operated by one corporation alone. Imagine what that number would be if it included all violations committed by every adult foster care home in Michigan.
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our lawyers represent AFC residents and their families in lawsuits against Michigan adult foster care homes. When a resident moves into such facility, the family places a tremendous amount of trust in the home and its nursing staff. In fact, under Michigan law licensed adult foster care homes should provide 24 hour personal care under the following elements:
- Personal care - i.e. bathing, dressing, eating
- Supervision – guidance of a resident in activities of everyday living
- Protection – measures to ensure residents are protected from physical and emotional harm
- Room and Board – providing adequate housing and meals
Therefore, when a family places their loved one in a facility they expect he/she to receive adequate treatment that protects their safety and welfare. However, if a resident is injured or dies due to improper treatment, abuse or neglect that person or his or her family should explore taking action against the home.
If you believe you or your loved one is a victim of abuse and neglect, you need an experienced lawyer to sue the Michigan adult foster care home. These types of claims are very complex and require extensive knowledge on both medical and legal issues.
At the law firm of Buckfire & Buckfire, P.C. our Michigan lawyers have significant experience in these cases. We have helped our clients win the maximum settlement for their injuries and have a track record of successfully proving that injury or death to a resident was caused by the negligent care of an AFC nursing staff.
