Nursing Home Premature Death

It is no defense for a skilled nursing facility to simply point to the patient’s age. Regardless of someone’s age, depriving them of one minute of life is tragedy that is potentially compensable via lawsuit. If circumstances in a nursing home result in a shortening of your loved one’s life expectancy then there may be an action available against the skilled nursing facility.

Settlement and verdict data for these types of cases are impossible to find because virtually all wrongful death lawsuits include a claim for premature death.
Historic settlements and verdicts range from $100,000 – nearly $1,000,000.
