With Garcia & Artigliere attorneys Stephen M. Garcia and Rosie Baladejo having secured a priority trial setting date, a $700,000 settlement was reached on behalf of a 79-year-old woman who was allowed to develop avoidable pressure injuries in a Southern California skilled nursing facility.
Garcia noted, “It always saddens me when our elders are entrusted to the care of these facilities and effectively ignored. As our client is alive, this was a case which we wanted to, and did, settle as soon as possible for a fair number so that she could benefit and enjoy the settlement proceeds in her lifetime. While this will not alter the pain she suffered due to the reckless neglect of the defendants, it will allow for her to pay a properly attentive caregiver and enjoy her golden years. That is important to us.”
