In November 2013, Lloyd & Lloyd obtained a $769,000 judgment against a Bartlesville nursing home for neglect that caused a Stage IV bed sore. This judgment was one of the largest judgments in Washington County for medical negligence in recent memory. Lloyd & Lloyd took this case to trial despite the fact that the nursing home is uninsured.
Many attorneys will not take a nursing home case unless the nursing home has insurance. For this reason, many nursing homes have dropped insurance in the belief that they are basically immune from lawsuits for their abuse. But Lloyd & Lloyd believes that nursing homes – and the owners who siphon the nursing home’s corporate assets – must be held accountable.
