At Allen Saltzman, LLP, we are proud that our experienced advocacy on behalf of our clients have netted positive results. Some of those results include:
- $2,000,000 for elder abuse committed against our 78-year-old client. Our client was allowed to fall while transferring from her wheelchair to her bed. She fractured her femur (upper leg) and patella (kneecap). Screaming and crying, she begged to be sent to the hospital, but was kept at the residential care facility for the elderly for another 12 hours.
- $1,600,000 (partially structured) for a traffic accident involving our client. Our client was traveling on a rural section of the California interstate when a low flying crop duster forced him off the road and caused his car to flip over several times. He suffered a significant brain injury with amnesia.
- $1,500,000 (structured) for a car versus horse accident. Our client’s father was traveling on a Southern California freeway when a horse bolted in front of his car. The impact threw the horse in the air. It landed on and crushed the passenger compartment of the car, causing a spinal fracture to our client, who was then paraplegic.
- $500,000 for elder abuse to the family of our deceased 97-year old client. Our client was the victim of failed medical care including medication errors, failed diagnoses of acute medical conditions, fluid overload, and malnutrition. He also was allowed to develop serious bedsores.
- $450,000 for elder abuse to the family of our 85-year-old client. Our client was allowed to develop serious bedsores which first developed at an acute level hospital, and then worsened at the skilled nursing facility.
- $320,000 for elder abuse to the family of our deceased 80-year-old client. Our client, who had a number of co-morbidities, was allowed to fall from his wheelchair and strike his head. The fall was not reported to our elder’s physician or responsible family member, and no diagnostic tests were taken.
- $225,000 for elder abuse to the family of our deceased 76-year-old client. Our client suffered a number of undiagnosed pressure ulcers (bed sores) which the skilled nursing facility attempted to hide from family members. By the time they were discovered at the acute care hospital, they already were at a Stage III, almost the most severe type of bedsore.
- $175,000 for elder abuse to the family of our deceased 102-year-old client. The skilled nursing home where our client was a long-term resident failed to report serious weight losses to the client’s responsible party or physician, which contributed to a series of infections.
