Recovered Favorable Settlement
Injury attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates negotiated a favorable settlement incurred in favor of their client.
- The Case
A female resident fell from her bed and fractured her hip. She endured surgery to repair the fracture.
- In Depth Look
Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys filed a negligence action. The defendant filed a motion to dismiss the negligence action. It argued that the facility had abided by the state rules and regulations and did not breach its duty of care.
Horwitz injury attorneys argued in response to this motion under the doctrine of res ipsa loquitur. The defendant knew that his client required complete assistance and, thus, relied exclusively on the defendant’s staff toe care for her and prevent injury. Because the defendant did not develop an individualized care plan, implement goals, place a floor mat near her bedside, ensure the call light was functioning and within reach, or put a bed alarm on the client’s bed, her fall and subsequent hip fracture implies negligence from the defendant.
