Nursing Home Neglect

Michigan Nursing Home Neglect Lawyers

Too often, the nursing homes we count on to provide loving care for our aging parents end up neglecting or even abusing their residents instead. If your parents have been injured due to nursing home neglect or abuse, you may have a compensation claim against the nursing home. Our nursing home neglect lawyers offer a free consultation to evaluate your case.

We represent clients throughout the Detroit metro area and surrounding communities in southeast Michigan who suffer nursing home injuries such as:

  • Fractures and broken bones
  • Bed sores
  • Dehydration
  • Injuries caused by the patient being allowed to wander around unsupervised
  • Injuries caused by lack of medical care
  • Injuries caused by restraints or bed rails
  • Injuries caused by abuse
  • Wrongful death

What is Involved in Filing a Nursing Home Neglect Claim?

The foundation of a nursing home injury claim is providing proof that the neglect of the nursing home caused the accident and the resident’s injury. Like medical malpractice cases, nursing home neglect claims involve careful analysis of medical records and the appropriate standard of care.

At Hopkins & Forhan, our nursing home neglect lawyers have over 70 years of combined personal injury law experience. We know how to evaluate your case and gather the needed evidence to bring an effective claim. We will fight to get just compensation for the victim’s pain and suffering, including compensation or reimbursement for medial treatment and hospital expenses.
