Garcia & Artigliere Helps Adult Abuse Victim Who Suffered Extreme Neglect
Garcia & Artigliere recently helped a victim take legal action against the care facility that failed to provide the necessary care and medical attention. As a result, the victim, a quadriplegic adult, suffered extremely severe bedsores, among other injuries.
The victim, a quadriplegic adult in need of care for mental and physical limitations, was a resident at a care facility specifically designed to house and care for elderly individuals and dependent adults. However, the caretakers provided poor care and failed to exhibit a standard quality of care that the victim and his family expected. The victim was neglected at the facility, which resulted in a stage 4 pressure ulcer—which is extremely painful and can lead to additional problems.
Not only did these painful sores develop, but the facility also failed to share its findings with the victim’s family, or with a related physician. Because the injuries were left unaddressed, and no medical help was called, the injuries became unnecessarily worse.
Due to extensive negligence and the withholding of care, the care facility and associated caretakers were accused of foul play. The experienced attorneys at Garcia & Artigliere filed a claim on behalf of the victim in an effort to hold the liable parties responsible for their actions. The damages requested include general damages, special damages, punitive damages, cost of legal fees, cost of suit, and any other further relief the court sees fit to award.
