        Recovered Favorable Settlement

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

        • The Case

          A female resident developed an ulcer on her right heel and required a two-person assist. In 48 hours, on 2 occasions, two CNAs improperly used a gait belt which caused a strangulated ventral hernia. For two days, no staff members tended to this injury. Once the resident’s husband insisted for a doctor to examines his wife, it was too late. The resident was taken to the ER where she was diagnosed with a severe infection. She was unable to tolerate surgery and died shortly thereafter.
