Obtained Defense Verdict in Deep Tissue Injury Case

Obtained a defense verdict after an arbitration on behalf of one of the nation's largest long term care providers in case involving the development of a Stage III sacral deep tissue injury. The Plaintiff alleged that the nursing standards of care were breached after a resident developed a large sacral deep tissue injury shortly after she was discharged from the nursing facility. The defense team was able to persuade the three-attorney arbitration panel that the nursing standard of care was not breached and that it was unlikely the wound was caused by any act or omission on the part of the nursing facility staff.
