        Recovered Favorable Settlement

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

        • The Case

          Our client was admitted to a hospital and experienced a significant change in her health status. During the course of her stay in the facility, the staff did not follow up on any of her changes, including unexplained weight loss, and, as a result, her condition worsened.

        • In Depth Look

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys filed a negligence claim against the nursing home. The facility denied liability on the grounds that it had abided by all the State and Federal regulations for nursing homes. Horwitz injury lawyers rebutted this argument by stating that the nursing home staff breached its duty of care to their client when it failed to inform caregivers of their client’s care plan goals, failed to comprehensively assess the client’s physical well-being, and failed to provide the staff that demonstrated competency and could meet the needs of their client. The client needlessly suffered as a result of this breach of standard care.
