Nursing Home Abuse Attorneys in Okemos

Unyielding Support for Neglected Elders

extensive research to find the right home and even more logistical work to finalize the move. When moving a loved one into a nursing home, you want to feel confident that the facility will serve his or her needs and treat him or her respectfully. Nursing home abuse is a truly horrible offense – and all instances of negligence must be properly addressed.

If your family member was neglected or abused while under the care of nursing home staff, you have the right to seek damages and pursue legal action against the facility. White Law PLLC is here to help you navigate that legal process. We are passionate about helping the innocent victims of abuse get the help they need and the compensation they deserve.

To request a consultation with our team, please call (517) 316-1195 or contact us online.

The Signs of Neglect

Sometimes, a senior may not properly communicate the abuse they are suffering – or they may not be able to due to disabilities or other incapacitations. If you have a loved one in a nursing home, it is important to stay vigilant and to be aware of the signs of potential neglect or abuse.

Warning signs may include:

  • Wounds or cuts
  • Unclean conditions in the facility or your loved one’s room
  • Frequent sickness
  • Significant weight loss
  • Unexplained injuries
  • Bed sores
  • Change in personality, attitude, or demeanor

If you have any reason to believe that abuse has occurred, it is important that you document your findings – take notes, take photographs, and seek medical attention for your loved one if necessary. Then, call our Okemos nursing home abuse attorneys.

Forms of Abuse & Neglect

Without much ability to seek recourse, far too many elders experience neglect and abuse at the hands of nursing home staff.

Examples of nursing home abuse:

  • Starvation/not providing enough food or water
  • Excessive restraints
  • Preventable falls
  • Bed sores
  • Physical abuse (hitting, kicking, etc.)
  • Sexual abuse
  • Letting residents wander out of the facility
  • Over-medication

These are just some of the many ways that nursing home staff can mistreat residents. If your loved one suffered any of these or some other form of abuse, our team is ready to investigate the incident and build a strong case on your behalf to hold the nursing home accountable.

To get started on your case, please give us a call at (517) 316-1195. We look forward to serving you and your family.

Real Testimonials
From Previous Clients

  • Attorney Jamie White and his legal team are amazing.

    “Attorney Jamie White and his legal team are amazing. Although my situation did not end up in actual court, this team was well prepared in the event that it did. I was notified and in the loop on every step that was happening and it was very comforting to know that this team was well prepared to handle my situation. If I ever need legal counsel again, or know of anyone who does, White Law PLLC is my first choice.”

  • Great team of lawyers

    “Great team of lawyers here who are well connected with prosecutors in the area that look out for their client's best interests. They also provide alternative pricing for those who can't afford the top lawyers in the firm (and the top lawyers still work with the associates despite the lower price), so yeah great law firm.”

  • I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense

    “People v. D.B. (2016) - "When we got the news that our grandson was facing very serious charges, we were devastated. We didn’t know any criminal defense attorneys and didn’t know who to turn to. After speaking to a few people, three of them recommend attorney James White. Mr. White was able to meet with us right away, which was a relief because we had so many questions. The whole ordeal of what our grandson was being charged with was very stressful on us, both emotionally and financially. Mr. White was kind and understanding. He kept us informed and was available throughout the case for any questions or concerns we had. Mr. White fought hard to achieve the best possible outcome for our grandson, and in the end his efforts and determination brought our grandson the best results we could have hoped for. What stood out to us is how down to earth Mr. White is. He handles himself in a professional and respectful manner and will work hard to get the results his client needs. I’d also like to thank the support staff of White Law PLLC who were kind, polite, and helpful whenever we called. I would recommend Mr. White and White Law PLLC to anyone seeking any type of criminal defense." ”
