Yes, often times, nursing homes try to “cover up” the real truth behind the cause of death of a resident. However, by hiring your own county medical examiner they will be able to identify evidence of trauma and findings of a brain bleed consistent with a fall. This evidence can later be used in a nursing home neglect lawsuit to seek damages under the Michigan Wrongful Death Statute.
