        Mentally Handicapped Resident Sustains Numerous Unexplained Bruises

        Recovered Favorable Settlement

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

        • The Case

          A mentally handicapped patient suffered from pneumonia that went untreated for an extended period of time. The resident died in the emergency room.

        • In Depth Look

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys filed a negligence action against the nursing home. The nursing home denied the allegations of neglect from the nursing home staff. The injury attorneys produced their client’s medical charts, which indicated that the staff failed to document any of their client’s incidents of vomiting, shallow breathing, and low blood pressure.

          Testimony from the client’s family member indicated that she was exhibiting signs of over-medication. They produced evidence of severe bruising on her arms, upper legs, and back, which they argued indicated that the staff had abused their client. Further, they argued the neglectful treatment of their client hastened her death.
