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 abuse include:

  • 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

  • White law had been very helpful in working with us.

    “White law had been very helpful in working with us. They explained everything in a way me and my family could understand, and overall seem to care about their customers.”

  • I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead.

    “My experience with White Law was awesome and I am definitely going to hire Jamie for my son’s case. Jamie did exactly what he said he was going to do and I appreciate that. I had a previous attorney from a different firm that didn’t do what I wanted him to do. It was frustrating. Jamie was great because he always left it up to me to decide. He would give me all my options and then let me make an informed decision. That’s what attorneys are supposed to do. You pay them money to help you out, not force you into deals. I was expecting to go to jail yesterday but, because of Jamie, I am home with my family instead – and that’s what is most important to me. I would recommend Jamie and his firm to anyone.”

  • I know that Mr. White put his heart and soul into my trial, and that he believed in meI know that Mr. White put his heart and soul into my trial, and that he believed in meI know that Mr. White put his heart and soul into my trial, and that he believed in

    “A friend of mine recommended White Law PLLC and attorney James White. They jumped right into my case and my situation. Mr. White opened my eyes and shined the light on my case; they did everything in their power to help me. They hired a private investigator and expert witnesses. The last week of my trial, I was in the office almost every day; I know that Mr. White put his heart and soul into my trial, and that he believed in me.”

  • Thank you White Law for what you did!

    “People v. A.D. (2014) - "My son was facing his third gun charge. His first lawyer died on Christmas Day. Jamie White took over the case when it was already in a late phase of the case. My son was serving a year from a prior gun charge and Mr. White had almost all of the charges thrown out. My son was sentenced to nine months with time served, nothing except a mark on his record. Mr. White got him from being in jail with a third gun charge looking at 10 to 15 years with habitual to a plea to a gun charge with time served for nine months. Thank you White Law for what you did!"”

  • Mr. White and his staff are second to none

    “Mr. White and his staff are second to none. They are courteous, respectful, and hard working advocates for your defense. Mr. White gave me my life back. You can't put a price on that.”
