Garcia & Artigliere lawyers Stephen M. Garcia and Bill Artigliere teamed to acquire a $550,000 settlement on behalf of an elderly man who was allowed to suffer from falls and a fracture in a Southern California skilled nursing facility.
Mr. Garcia noted, “These defendants and their lawyers played the delay game of arbitration, apparently believing that would deter our efforts to acquire justice on behalf of our client. They succeeded in some respects as the Plaintiff died during the arbitration delays. However, they clearly thought we would wane in our efforts to hold them accountable for their abuse of our client. They were wrong; we waited them out and stayed diligent. This abuse of the arbitration process by long-term care providers to delay litigation and disallow abused elders from acquiring justice is shameful but ultimately, in the face of strong and diligent advocacy, ineffective. We will continue to fight these improper tactics on behalf of our clients and eventually, over the efforts of the defense, acquire justice on their behalf.”
