        Stage IV Pressure Sores Lead to Resident’s Leg Amputation

        Recovered Favorable Settlement

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

        • The Case

          A female elder entered a nursing home after she had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. During her stay, she developed Stage IV pressure ulcers on her right foot and MRSA. The family discovered these pressure ulcers and took her to the hospital. The staff was not aware of the severity of the bedsores. The woman had to have her right leg amputated.

        • In Depth Look

          Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates’ nursing home abuse and neglect attorneys filed a negligence action against the nursing home, alleging that it breached its duty of care it had contracted with the client to provide. The defendant responded to the complaint on procedural grounds.

          Injury attorneys at Horwitz, Horwitz & Associates rebutted this claim by asserting that they abided by the Illinois Code of Civil Procedure and the defendant’s motion was baseless. Thomas Kelliher, an injury attorney at Horwitz, Horwititz & Associates, stated that the facility had breached its standard of care, in violation of the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act, and it follows, as a matter of law, that the facility be held liable for the client’s injures.
