$700,000 Settlement For An Elderly Client

Garcia & Artigliere lawyers Stephen M. Garcia and William Artigliere were proud to have achieved an $700,000.00 settlement as the trial date was imminent for an elderly client from a Southern California skilled nursing facility for the elderly which allowed the Plaintiff to develop avoidable pressure injuries. Stephen Garcia commented, “time and again these facilities seek out those with complex medical care because the government pays more for their stays, and then fails to provide the most basic of care such as turning and repositioning to relieve pressure on bony prominences to avoid pressure injuries. Personally, and professionally, I am at the end of my rope with these profiteers and I remain honored every day to serve the victims of these facilities placing their own profits over the health and safety of those they promise to serve.
