Wrongful Death of Nursing Home Patient Reaches Settlement

ERIK1Erik Heninger and Drew Haskins recently settled a wrongful death case against an Alabama nursing home for a confidential amount.  The decedent’s family brought the wrongful death claim after the decedent developed multiple Stage IV pressure ulcers in the nursing home.  The lawsuit alleged that the nursing home’s staff members who were responsible for overseeing the care of the decedent were negligent in their failure to properly recognize, diagnose and treat the pressure ulcers.  As a result of this negligence, the decedent developed severe sepsis which ultimately led to his death.
