$500,000+ Settlement - Nursing Home Fall Causes Multiple Neck Fractures

Attorney Kevin Smith secured a $500,000+ settlement for a client who fell in an assisted living facility causing multiple neck fractures. The lawsuit alleged that the nursing home was negligent in the use and operation of a lift used by staff to help move the elderly patient. The client suffered from progressive dementia, and thus, Smith was faced with various challenges, e.g., determining how the incident occurred and obtaining evidence pertaining to the client's life before the injury. Moreover, videos of the client's life immediately before the incident were relied upon to show the impact of the injuries on the client. The case settled after mediation.
