A Recently Resolved Case Illustrates Our Effectiveness in Handling Nursing Home Neglect Cases
A recent case demonstrates both the extent of negligence that can occur in nursing homes and our skill in obtaining fair results for our client.
Our clients’ loved one entered a nursing home to recuperate from an operation. Nursing home staff was warned of the possibility of injuries due to falls.
After just two days in the nursing home our clients’ loved on left her bed and had fallen seven times. At no time was the patient restricted or restrained and at no time was so much as a mattress placed on the floor along side the bed to provide protection from injuries.
After the seventh fall the patient died from fall-related injuries. Our investigation and handling of the case resulted in a substantial $7 million settlement.
