As trial was nearing, Garcia & Artigliere attorneys Stephen M. Garcia and Bill Artigliere acquired a settlement of $1.625 million against a Southern California Residential Care Facility for the Elderly that allowed an 83-year-old woman to develop a pressure injury on her left hip.
Garcia & Artigliere rejected many offers of settlement and, in fact, declined to deter from trial preparation to engage in a mediation until the full amount of the one-million-dollar insurance policy was tendered as an offer of settlement.
Artigliere stated, “It was important that the defendant facility reach into their own money rather than just insurance money, to settle the case. We are hopeful that in being required to do so, they will recognize the significance and pain caused by their misconduct and alter the way they care for our elders into the future.”
