Nursing Home Resident Awarded $4.4 Million

This is a settlement for the Personal Injury lawsuit.

Los Angeles, CA: A $4.4 million settlement has been awarded in a negligence lawsuit brought by a resident of a nursing home who was injured while living there.

In 2009, 79-year old Samuel Nevarrez was admitted to San Marino Skilled Nursing and Wellness Centre for rehabilitation after several falls at home. He stayed at the nursing home for six weeks and during that time he fell a further nine times, which, he claimed in his lawsuit, caused him to suffer a subdural hematoma and a subsequent stroke.

Nevarrez later returned to the facility where he suffered a further two falls and following the last fall he was placed in hospice. Nevarrez sued the nursing home and its management company, the Country Villa Service Corp, claiming that the staff at the facility did not prevent his falls. The jury hearing the lawsuit found the nursing home 40 percent at fault and Nevarrez 20 percent comparatively negligent.
