        Female Resident Dies of Malnutrition and Dehydration

        Recovered Favorable Settlement

        Injury attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates negotiated a favorable settlement incurred in favor of their client.

        • The Case

          A female elder was admitted to a nursing home by her family to recover from septic shock. While receiving rehabilitative services at the nursing home, our client became dehydrated and malnourished.

        • In Depth Look

          The defendant argued that the facts were insufficient to support a wrongful death claim.

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ wrongful death attorneys rebutted this argument with evidence that she had not received her dialysis treatments, as ordered by a physician, nor was she receiving her oxygen. These factors contributed to and hastened the client’s death.
