Missouri Large 7 Figure Settlement
WOMAN DROWNED AT MISSOURI NURSING HOME
Dollar, Burns, Becker and Hershewe partner, Jill Kanatzar, recently recovered a large seven figure settlement for the family of a woman who died as a result of drowning at a Missouri nursing home. The woman was a resident of the nursing home for less than one year. She was left alone in a bathtub for an extended period by a Certified Nurses Aid who was employed through a staffing agency. The allegations against the facility included a failure to train and supervise the visiting aid and notify her of a change in the resident’s condition 5 days prior to the drowning. The settlement was with the facility and staffing agency.
