Garcia & Artigliere Obtained a $1 Million Settlement Against a California Residential Care Facility for Unlawful Business Practices and Violations of Residents’ Rights

Garcia & Artigliere elder abuse attorney Stephen Garcia obtained a $1 million settlement for an elderly client who suffered financial hardship due to the gross understaffing and unlawful business practices of a Residential Care Facility for the Elderly (RCFE) in California.

According to the lawsuit, at the time the Plaintiff was admitted and throughout the course of their stay, the facility intentionally concealed that it had a long history of violating RCFE industry laws. Further, the facility did not have sufficient, competent personnel on duty or devote appropriate financial resources to provide necessary services to meet resident needs. Had these facts been disclosed to the Plaintiff, they would not have become residents or paid substantial money for the facility’s substandard care.
