Nursing Home Case With Award of $13.2 Million Goes To New Trial

A new trial is underway for a nursing home case reaching an award of $13.2 million for abuse of a nursing home patient. A judge overturning the ruling stated that the jury did not receive sufficient instructions. The case involved claims on a negligence count, a violation of the state nursing home act and a wrongful death claim.

The plaintiff’s attorney believed the jury was correct in their verdict. "We set out to get justice for [injured party’s] family for the pain and suffering, and ultimately, death because of substandard care given by this defendant," said the plaintiff’s attorney. "We believe the jury got this right." For more, read the story.
