Plaintiffs Awarded $250,000 in Nursing Home Injury Case

The family of a woman who survived a two-story fall out of a nursing home window has been compensated for their nursing home negligence. The nursing home accident happened six years ago. The 57-year-old cognitively impaired woman tried to leave the nursing home to be with her family. While doors and elevators were kept locked at the facility, the attorney says the windows were kept open. One day a staff member left the victim alone and she climbed out of the window falling thirty feet. The jury found that the nursing home had committed nursing home negligence and awarded the family more than $250,000. Nursing homes must be extra cautious in order to avoid nursing home accident such as these. To read more about the nursing home negligence, please click the link.
