Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers

Passionately Protecting Families Throughout Detroit

Nursing home abuse

Governmental agencies such as the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services help oversee the care and services provided by nursing homes, and both federal and state governments have established uniform standards to ensure the protection and safety of patients. Unfortunately, despite these governmental agencies, over one million nursing home residents are abused in some manner each year. In fact, in the state of Michigan, nursing homes have the ninth highest rate of serious violations per capita, meaning patients or residents living in nursing homes are being neglected and abused every day.

Some of the most common types of nursing home abuse cases include:

  • Bedsores (also known as pressure sores or decubitus ulcers)
  • Fall injuries
  • Malnutrition and dehydration
  • Broken bones and fractures
  • Restraint injuries and strangulation
  • Wandering away from the facility or elopement
  • Medication mistakes or errors
  • Lack of supervision or poor care
  • Infections such as sepsis and gangrene
  • Wrongful death

Patients or residents abused or neglected in a Michigan nursing home do have legal rights and may be able to pursue a lawsuit against the facility. If you have a loved one who suffered injuries or even death as a result of the care they were receiving in a nursing home, turn to Goodman Acker P.C. to discuss your case and preserve your rights. Our Detroit nursing home abuse lawyers will listen to your case and determine whether or not your loved one and family may be entitled to compensation. We also represent our clients under a contingency fee basis, which means no fees or costs whatsoever until we win a settlement or recovery on your behalf.

Why Hire Goodman Acker P.C. to Represent You?

Whether the abuse consists of recurrent negligence or a single incident which causes injury, the victim has a right to damages if a lawsuit is filed. In this type of claim, you must be able to prove that a staff member of the facility or care provider was negligent and their negligence was a direct result of your loved one's injury or death. This can be very complicated as many facilities will either deny any wrongdoing or claim that your loved one did something to cause their injury. For this reason, it is important that the attorney you hire to represent you has significant experience in handling these types of claims.

Our firm understands the anger and frustration you may be feeling when you discover that your loved one has fallen victim to nursing home abuse. Our firm has more than 75 years of experience in representing patients and their families who were injured or killed as result of nursing home neglect. We are devoted to helping our clients and have successfully represented clients with multi-million dollar results.
