Garcia & Artigliere Files Complaint Against Alta Vista Manor on Behalf of Nursing Home Abuse Victim
Over the last several decades, the legal team at Garcia & Artigliere has gained a nationwide reputation for providing top-tier representation in cases of negligence and elder abuse. Recently, our firm took on a client who alleged that the administration at Alta Vista Manor – a nursing home located in Vista, California – did not provide adequate supervision or assistance, leading him to sustain a serious head injury.
According to the complaint, the victim experienced an unwitnessed fall on September 14, 2017, and the resulting head injury was not discovered by a physician until well into the next day, September 15. The victim was visiting the doctor for an unrelated prior condition, when the doctor noticed that he was in an altered state due to his head wound.
Because head injuries need prompt medical care and attention, nursing home staff members have a high duty of care to ensure that their residents do not fall unattended – and that they receive a timely medical visit whenever a fall occurs. In this particular case, the staff of Alta Vista Manor failed to meet their duty of care, not only failing to monitor the victim, but failing to act on information that he had fallen.
At this time, our legal team at Garcia & Artigliere would like to invite anyone who has suffered similar injuries (whether at Alta Vista Manor or at another nursing home in California) to come forward and file a claim. Skilled at investigating nursing home abuse cases, our attorneys can help to hold negligent nursing home professionals and supervisors accountable for causing serious injuries.
