death at assisted living facility
Our client’s mother resided in an assisted living facility. Unfortunately, she passed away of natural causes; however, no one discovered her body for two and a half days, allowing the body to deteriorate significantly. The clients claimed intentional infliction of emotional distress. After a jury trial, the clients recovered 30 times more than what was offered in settlement prior to trial.
death at nursing facility
Our client’s elderly mother was a patient at a skilled nursing facility. The facility negligently allowed the patient to strangle to death in a wheelchair seatbelt. After filing suit and various depositions, the case settled for a confidential sum.
death at rehab facility
Our client’s mother was sent to a skilled nursing facility for rehab after a hospital stay. She was expected to return to her home where she had been living independently; however, she mysteriously passed away within 1 week of arriving at the rehab facility. After our investigation and numerous depositions, we were able to prove her cause of death and reached a sizeable settlement for our client.
