$3.279 Million Default For Elder Abuse

$3,279,463 Default Elder Abuse Judgment for pressure ulcers on behalf of an elderly woman and her daughter against a San Pablo nursing home.

The judgment was entered by a judge after an evidentiary hearing in which Felicia presented evidence of how the elderly woman had suffered when the nursing home repeatedly neglected her, causing her to develop a Stage 4 bedsore that covered her buttocks. The bedsore required multiple surgeries to save the elderly woman’s life. As a result of the nursing home’s neglect, the elderly woman is bed-bound for the rest of her life. Felicia also presented evidence that entitled the daughter to a damage award for her own emotional distress that was based on gross acts of mistreatment of her mother she observed during visits to the nursing home.
