Yes, surviving family members may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against a Michigan adult foster care home if their loved one’s death was a result of the AFC’s negligence. When a resident resides at a Michigan adult foster care home, it is the liability of the facility and its staff to provide appropriate care, protection, and supervision. However, when the AFC fails to do so and as a result death occurs to a resident, the home and staff may be held liable and a Michigan wrongful death lawsuit may be able to be filed.
Some of the most common causes of adult foster care home abuse and neglect that our attorneys file wrongful death lawsuits for include medication errors, fall injuries, wandering and elopement, poor or not adequate supervision, drowning, and more.
