Our Michigan nursing home lawyers are called by family members grieving over the loss of a loved one due to death caused by neglect at a nursing home or assisted living facility. Families of a nursing home resident who died due to neglect or abuse at that facility experience many emotions after such a death. These include anger, sorrow, and feelings of betrayal from the nursing home facility that the entrusted to care for their family member.
Family members are usually looking for two things when they contact our Michigan nursing home neglect attorneys. First, they are looking for justice for themselves and the victim of nursing home neglect. They want compensation for the loss of the loved one. Second, they do not want any other family to go through the same experience and want to prevent another resident from an unexpected death at the nursing home. We can often help the family accomplish both of those goals.
Our experienced nursing home injury lawyers file wrongful death lawsuits for family members who have lost a loved one in a nursing home. These lawsuits are filed against the nursing home facility and nursing home doctors whose negligence in their care of the resident caused a premature and untimely death. These lawsuits not only seek compensation for the tragic death of a loved one, but also serve as notice to the nursing home that they need to improve their patient care or they will face other lawsuits in the future. We have achieved excellent results for both of these goals.
