        Resident-on-Resident Violence Leads to Fractured Hip

        Recovered Favorable Settlement

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

        • The Case

          The last thing that anyone should have to worry about when choosing a nursing home is the possibility of resident-on-resident violence. Unfortunately, one family experienced this nightmare when their loved one was attacked by a wrongly-admitted female resident who suffered from long-term mental illness. The woman entered the man’s room as he was sitting in his wheelchair and beat him severely on the arms and face. She then pulled the man out of his wheelchair, fracturing his hip.

        • In Depth Look

          The family of the beaten man came to meet with Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys. Our injury attorneys recovered a confidential monetary sum for the family. They proved that the facility was at fault for not properly assessing the female resident when they were aware of her mental history. If the proper procedures and policies had been put into place, this unfortunate incident might never have occurred.
