Our Michigan nursing home abuse settlements are amongst the highest in the entire state. We get substantial settlements for nursing home residents and their families in cases of abuse and neglect. Injuries include bedsores, fractured hips, broken bones, and death.
We can help you if you believe that you or your family member was the victim of neglect in a Michigan nursing home. The negligent provider may be liable for significant damages for the failure to provide appropriate treatment or care, especially when the injuries and the damages caused by the improper treatment are substantial.
How are Michigan Nursing Home Settlements Determined?
The amount of a nursing home settlement depends on a number of different factors. Some of these include:
- How strong is the case of negligence against the nursing home?
- Can it be proven that neglect or abuse caused an injury to the patient?
- What type of injuries or harm did the resident suffer?
- What kind of medical treatment was needed for the injuries?
- How much are the medical bills and expenses?
In cases involving death, a settlement also adds compensation for the loss of society and companionship of the family caused by the loss of the loved one.
