Kalamazoo / Battle Creek Nursing Home Neglect Attorneys With Decades of Combined Experience
Negligence in nursing home care can harm your elderly loved one in a variety of ways — medication errors, bedsores, wandering and physical abuse.
If you suspect that your senior relative is being abused or neglected in a nursing home or assisted living center in west or southwest Michigan, the caring Michigan personal injury law firm can help.
Ford & Murphy, P.C., in Kalamazoo are lawyers who fight on a variety of fronts, every day, for a safer Michigan. James B. Ford and William K. Murphy are skilled, caring attorneys with decades of experience and a solid record for improving clients’ lives.
Americans with elderly relatives depend on nursing homes, long-term care and assisted living facilities to provide a dignified lifestyle for our aging population. We expect them to be looked after in a compassionate, competent manner. Despite those expectations, many nursing homes in the U.S. continue to fall short of the mark.
A number of factors have contributed to the abuse or neglect of residents: poorly screened, unqualified and inadequately trained staff; short-staffed, overworked personnel; staffs with a history of violence; isolated, neglected residents; and the understandable reluctance of frightened residents to report abuse, due to the embarrassment or fear they feel.
If your loved one has suffered an injury or a decline in his or her condition, and you believe neglect or abuse by a nursing home played a prominent role, that facility may be held liable. Contact Ford & Murphy, P.C., to discuss the situation with the attorneys in a confidential consultation.
