A woman of Blue Lake, California visited her Alzheimer’s-suffering father on almost a daily basis and it was not uncommon for her to find him wearing clothes soaked in urine, a New York Injury Lawyer has learned.
The woman claimed that it would take sometimes more than twenty minutes for the staff to find time to help her clean her father. And, she told a New York Injury Lawyer, he was not even the worst case of negligence.
“A lot of times I walked out of there crying because of the things I saw,” she said. Her testimony turned out to be very important when a jury hit the owners of a nursing home with a $677 million verdict, causing immediate calls for tort reform.
The 58-year-old woman quoted above was part of a class-action lawsuit representing 32,000 patients who blamed nursing home staff shortages for inadequate care of their loved ones.
The company intends to appeal, but parties challenging a trial court decision are required to post 150 percent of the verdict as a bond, according to a New York Injury Lawyer. It is doubtful the company can pay the original judgment without going into bankruptcy, let alone the more than a billion the bond will cost.
Litigation is usually the last resort, but it is sometimes necessary. If you or a loved one are suffering due to someone else’s maliciousness or negligence, it’s time to call a New York Injury Attorney. You will need proper representation in court and a New York Injury Attorney is the best person to provide it.
