ABUSE & NEGLECT

NURSING HOME ABUSE

When a parent or loved one requires nursing home care, we expect that those at the nursing home where they will live will take good care of them.  However, this is not always the case.

In some instances, parents or loved ones are injured through nursing home or care facility neglect.  In other instances, they are injured through deliberate abuse.

Abuse of the Elderly Must Not Be Tolerated

Our firm and attorneys have long been involved with many organizations that seek to prevent elder abuse and neglect in nursing homes and long-term care facilities.  Our attorneys have also testified before the Michigan Legislature concerning nursing home and long-term care facility matters.

ASSISTED LIVING

Assisted living facilities may be thought of as those facilities that serve residents who can live somewhat independently, as well as those who may need some level of care that is below skilled nursing care.  Unfortunately, seniors at these facilities can suffer injury and death as a direct result of the negligence of these facilities, and even abuse at the hands of staff members.

When injury and death occur, we demand real answers and justice on behalf of our clients and their families. In seeking to hold facilities responsible, we take on the large corporations that often own these facilities and their teams of lawyers.  While no guaranty of success can ever be made, we have a strong record for obtaining full and fair compensation on behalf of our clients.

ADULT FOSTER CARE

Adult foster care homes typically consist of a traditional house where four or fewer adult residents live, all of whom require a similar level of care.  Usually each of the adults have their own bedroom and share common areas, and there is an on-site care person 24 hours a day.

Tragically, seniors are often injured or die from the negligent care in adult foster care as the result of dangerous conditions in the home, a lack of monitoring, or the failure to recognize that the senior is experiencing a severe medical event.  The profit motive to “keep beds filled” can lead to poor decisions about keeping a senior at the facility, rather than transferring the senior to a higher skilled-care facility that is needed.
