Michigan Nursing Home Abuse & Resident Neglect In Health Care Facilites

Our Michigan nursing home abuse lawyers handle cases involving nursing home negligence for residents who suffer injuries and resident's family members who have lost a loved one in a Michigan health care facility such as a nursing home, hospital, adult foster care facilities, and assisted living facilities. These lawsuits are filed against the health care facility and the nursing home doctors whose negligence in their care of the resident caused injuries or even wrongful death.
