Falls in Hospitals & Nursing Homes - Michigan Medical Malpractice Lawyers

Falls in hospitals and nursing homes are a significant medical problem and can give rise to a Michigan medical malpractice lawsuit.  Hospital patients and nursing home residents often suffer significant injuries due to falls, ranging from fractured hips to even death.  Many times, these falls happen during transfers to bed, due to falls from bed, or due to a patient walking to the bathroom when a nurse does not come after the call light has been pushed by the patient.

Depending on the circumstances of the fall, the hospital or nursing home may be liable to the patient for the injuries suffered in the fall.  If the patient was left unattended, did not have a bed rail, or did not have other safety measures in place to prevent a fall injury, a lawsuit can be filed seeking money damages to compensante victim, as well as to pay all medical expenses related to the fall.  An experienced Michigan malpractice lawyer should be consulted on such a case.
