Our 82-year-old client was moved to a nursing home due to advancing dementia. During his first week at the nursing home, he was allowed to fall twice with the second fall causing a severe brain injury, and his eventual death.
Initially, the insurance company tried to deny liability and refused to make an offer. It became clear that the insurance company was going to have to pay and they made a low-ball $90,000 offer. Attorney Terese Halfmann proceeded to file a lawsuit, and settled the case for $235,000 before trial.
