Two Nursing Home Verdicts
against Kindred: $750,000 for emotional distress damages
Two patients were treated inhumanely at a local Nursing Home.
We brought a suit to hold the Nursing Home accountable. The nursing
home did not treat these cases seriously at first only offering
to settle one case for $10,000. Other law firms had rejected these
cases as having no or very low 'economic value'.
On June 4 two Plaintiffs represented by Hamill Law office were
awarded verdicts in Nursing Home Abuse cases:
Client Clara H. was a 105 Nursing Home patient who we were able
to prove was changed 'roughly' and inappropriately by a certified
nurse aid. The Judge found that the abusive change was 'not isolated'
and awarded her estate $300,000 for verbal
and physical abuse causing emotional distress. There was
no seperate claim for personal injuries.
Jim H. was an 86 year old Nursing Home patient who was also changed
'roughly' in a manner that was painful and inappropriate. The
Judge found that the abusive change was 'not isolated' and awarded
his estate $450,000 for verbal and physical
abuse causing emotional distress. There was no seperate
claim for personal injuries.
Both clients had been dementia patients who were deceased at
the time of trial. Both Verdicts were against Kindred
Healthcare in Franklin,MA.
These verdicts were significant because they were
awarded without a showing evidence of physical injuries; that
is they were essentially awards for EMOTIONAL
DISTRESS ONLY claims
WITHOUT SEPARATE Claims for personal injuries. They
included damages for the loss of dignity suffered by these helpless
dementia patients at the hands of a Franklin/Kindred staff member.
What the Judges say:
Here is what the presiding Judge said
about Attorney Hamill in his written decision awarding damages:
Hamill provided exemplary and professional
representation throughout the trial..."
