  • Confidential Settlement Alleging Wrongful Death Due to Nursing Home’s Negligence

Sommers Schwartz secured a confidential settlement for a nursing home’s failure to properly prevent and treat decubitus ulcers. According to the allegations, a 95-year-old woman residing in the defendant nursing home developed bedsores that became chronic, non-healing, and infected, ultimately contributing to her demise. The woman’s estate claimed that had the nursing home staff appropriately and timely treated the bedsores, she would have avoided the unnecessary pain, suffering, and wrongful death.
