Case Conclusion Date:January 1, 2011
Practice Area:Nursing Home Abuse - Neglect
Description:As part of a partial mediated settlement, our client agreed not to disclose the names of the parties to this elder abuse litigation. In this case, our clientâ€™s rights were violated at a skilled nursing facility. Defendants included the facilityâ€™s agents and owners, including this â€œMedical Director.â€ Defendantsâ€™ elder abuse and neglect was confirmed in a lengthy investigation report prepared by the California Department of Public of Public Health. Nonetheless, defendantsâ€™ denied any and all liability. This partial mediated settlement only involved the facilityâ€™s Medical Director, who maintained separate lawyers and separate insurance from his facility. The case proceeded against the other defendants as they still claimed they had done nothing wrong.
