elder abuse - REPRESENTATIVE CASES
- Plaintiff claimed her father developed severe bedsores while a resident of a Skilled Nursing Facility, which led to sepsis and his eventual death. Defendants disputed the cause of death and that they had breached the standard of care in any way. After resolving numerous discovery disputes, a settlement was negotiated.
- In a financial elder abuse claim, siblings claimed that their brother had stolen a number of their father’s assets. The brother denied wrongdoing, claiming that his father had made the transfers freely and that some of the funds claimed to be stolen were loans that had been repaid. Settlement was eventually achieved, mostly by persuading the brother to move out of the father’s home.
