Practice Area:Nursing Home Abuse - Neglect
Outcome:Settlement with a nursing home for $860,000
Description:My client was placed in a local nursing home for two weeks. During that time his blood sugar count was essentially unmonitored, although he was diabetic. His elevated sugar caused his leg to become amputated above the knee. The nursing home staff denied they did anything improper. Various members of the staff were charged with criminal neglect felonies in Madison County. This case was placed on the expedited docket due to my client's age. The case settled very quickly.
