The Law Offices of Lee Steinberg, P.C. is among Michigan’s elite nursing home neglect and elder abuse law firms. Led by experienced and aggressive trial lawyers and litigators, the firm leads the statewide battle to protect elderly and dependent adults from abuse and neglect.
An increasing elderly population has led to a larger nursing home population, and with this has come more instances of Michigan nursing home negligence and abuse. Governmental agencies such as the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services help oversee the care and services provided by nursing homes, and both federal and state governments have established uniform standards for nursing homes and to ensure the protection and safety of patients.
In Michigan, patients are protected by a “Patient’s Bill of Rights,” found in MCL 333.20201. The Patient’s Bill of Rights provides a framework for all hospitals, nursing homes, and assisted living facilities to follow to ensure all patients are treated fairly and provided with adequate and appropriate medical treatment.
Unfortunately, despite oversight by various governmental agencies, thousands of nursing home residents are injured or abused in some manner each year due to negligence. Whether the abuse consists of recurrent negligence or a single incident that causes injury, the victim and family have a right to money damages.
