$8.9 Million

A nursing home committed elder abuse resulting in the wrongful death of a 65-year-old resident. In addition to $2.9 Million in compensatory damages and attorney’s fees, the court awarded $6 Million in punitive damages.

$750,000

A 91-year-old woman fell repeatedly in an assisted living facility. On the last occasion, she fractured her shoulder and passed away while being hospitalized for her injury.

$565,000

An 82 year old woman was transferred to a Monterey Nursing Home following a surgery which paralyzed her. She entered the nursing home with small bed sores, one of which became far worse while at the nursing home. When the nursing home finally transferred her back to the hospital it was only because the pressure sore on her coccyx had become fist sized and was infected. She suffered a number of hospitalizations over many months because of the severe exacerbation of her bed sore’s condition which she claimed was from the nursing home’s abuse and neglect.

$450,000 settlement

A middle-aged woman suffering from severe multiple sclerosis sued her nursing home for dependent adult neglect and abuse arising out of the development of pressure sores (decubitus ulcers). Significant discovery and investigation revealed that the nursing home had failed to follow doctor’s orders, failed to follow California regulations, as well as its own policies and procedures regarding preventing skin problems and treating residents with pressure sores.
