Pennsylvania Jury Finds Nursing Home and its Management Company Liable for Resident’s Death.
Drug and alcohol addiction and overdose has become a national crisis. On the heels of this epidemic, a new industry has emerged – one designed to capitalize on the desperation of those who seek to break free from the clutches of addiction. Poorly run, profit-focused drug treatment centers and unregulated sober homes are popping up all over the country, creating a world of nefarious patient recruiters, drug-testing mills, and blatant health care fraud. Injuries can include relapse, untreated withdrawal symptoms, lack of supervision, physical or sexual assault, force prostitution, overdose, suicide attempts, patient shopping, insurance fraud and more. We can help.
A Lancaster County jury reached a unanimous verdict on May 3, 2018, in a case where a woman was sexually assaulted in a nursing home. The jury awarded $7.5 million in compensatory damages, but the parties reached a settlement before the punitive damages portion of the trial could begin. Our firm was honored to help the Brace family find justice.
