Statistics reflecting incidents of abuse involving elderly residents in nursing homes and care facilities in Missouri and throughout the United States are both staggering and disheartening. More than 2 million cases of elder abuse are reported annually, and almost one out of every ten elderly individuals will experience some form of elder abuse. Additionally, the overwhelming majority of elder abuse incidents remain unreported.
When nursing homes assume their responsibility of caring for an elderly individual, a trust relationship is created by the facility and the elderly person and his or her family members. When that trust relationship is broken, the elderly individual and his or her family members may have a right to file a lawsuit against the nursing facility to recover damages for injuries. Nursing home care facilities owe both the elderly individual and their family members a duty of care, and if said duty is breached by way of negligence or perhaps criminal intent, ensuing damages can be sought against the nursing home facility.

I recently recovered $75,000.00 for an individual injured in an automobile accident in the City of St. Louis. Our client suffered a shoulder injury. The insurance company offered $45,000.00 prior to filing suit, and during litigation, I was able to obtain $75,000.00 for resolution of the case.
I also recently resolved a case against a boat rental company. Our client was injured when the boat seat that he was using collapsed, causing injury to his left ankle. I was able to recover $90,000.00 for our client’s damages.
