California Nursing Home Settlement Approved

Skip Navigation LinksHome > Practice Areas > Premises Liability Litigation > California Nursing Home Settlement Approved

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, a California judge has agreed to a $63 million settlement between Skilled Health Care Group, Inc. and current and former patients of the facility. Earlier this year, a Humboldt County jury had awarded the plaintiffs $677 million.

The company claimed the enormous verdict would send it into bankruptcy, indefinitely prolonging the time until victims received compensation. As a result, the victims agreed to the settlement, which will provide $50 million to the 32,000 patients who were harmed as the result of nursing home negligence, as well as $12.8 million to comply with state-mandated staffing levels.

Nursing home abuse is a particularly tragic form of abuse. When we place our loved ones in a home, we expect them to be respected and cared for. Too often they are neglected and abused. In order to cut costs and increase profits, many nursing home facilities – such as the one in this case – fail to provide adequate staffing.

For more information, or if you are concerned a loved one has been receiving negligent care, contact Sette Law Office, dedicated to helping those injured due to the recklessness or carelessness of others for more than 20 years.
