As trial was nearing, Garcia & Artigliere attorneys Stephen M. Garcia and Bill Artigliere acquired a settlement of $800,000 against a Southern California skilled nursing facility for the elderly that allowed an 82-year-old woman to suffer a fall and fractured hip despite allegedly being cared for as a “high fall risk” resident.
Artigliere stated, “The defense adopted, effectively, the “old people fall” defense. We were gratified to expose the assertion as specious through many depositions and aggressive discovery. Our client was neglected and we were pleased to see that reality was eventually accepted by the defense in settling the case as trial rapidly approached.”
