Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers in Detroit & Southfield Michigan

The elderly are some of society’s most vulnerable members, and when declining health requires increased care and attention, nursing homes are there to assist them.

We entrust nursing home staff with the responsibility of tending to patients’ many medical, physical, and emotional needs, but all too often elderly residents are neglected or abused, suffer needlessly, though not always able to observe and report problems with their care or even their own symptoms.

Medical and professional negligence in a nursing home can take the form of:

  • Unsanitary conditions leading to infections
  • Nutritional neglect resulting in sudden weight loss and malnutrition
  • Neglect of medical symptoms
  • Failure to recognize and properly treat bed sores
  • Failure to properly administer medications
  • Falls resulting in fractured hips or legs
  • Sexual abuse
  • Nursing home negligence claims
