Common Injuries Caused By Nursing Home Abuse

Nursing home abuse can take various forms, resulting in serious physical and emotional harm to residents. Some common injuries may include:

  • Physical Abuse: Seniors may suffer from physical harm due to the intentional use of force, such as hitting, pushing, or restraining. Unexplained bruises, fractures, and injuries may be signs of such abuse.
  • Neglect: Failure to provide proper care, including assistance with personal hygiene, medication, and nutrition, can lead to serious health issues, infections, and deterioration of physical and mental well-being.
  • Emotional Abuse: Verbal insults, humiliation, isolation, and threats can cause emotional distress, leading to anxiety, depression, and a decline in overall quality of life.
  • Financial Exploitation: Seniors may fall victim to financial scams, unauthorized use of their funds, or coerced changes to their wills or estates, resulting in significant financial losses.
  • Sexual Abuse: This deeply disturbing form of abuse involves non-consensual sexual contact, which can cause physical injuries and profound emotional trauma.
  • Medical Malpractice: Inadequate medical care, improper administration of medications, and failure to address medical needs promptly can result in serious health complications or sometimes even death.

What Damages May Be Recovered in a Nursing Home Abuse Claim?

Depending on the circumstances of the case, potential damages that may be recovered include:

  • Medical Expenses: Compensation for medical treatment, hospital stays, medications, therapy, and rehabilitation.
  • Pain and Suffering: Damages for the physical pain, emotional distress, and diminished quality of life resulting from the abuse.
  • Loss of Companionship: If the abuse has led to the death of a loved one, surviving family members may be eligible to retrieve damages for the loss of companionship and for emotional support.
  • Punitive Damages: In the case of gross negligence or intentional harm, punitive damages may be awarded to penalize the offender and deter similar behavior in the future.

What is the Statute of Limitations for a Nursing Home Abuse Claim in Michigan?

It's crucial to take timely action if you suspect nursing home abuse. In Michigan, the statute of limitations for filing a nursing home abuse claim may vary depending based on the specific circumstances and the type of claim. Generally, the statute of limitations is within three years from the date the abuse occurred or when it was discovered, but exceptions may apply.

However, waiting too long to take legal action can hinder your ability to seek justice. Evidence may be lost, memories fade, and crucial witnesses become unavailable. That's why it's essential to consult our experienced Michigan nursing home abuse attorneys as soon as possible to ensure your case is handled with the utmost care and diligence.
