We like to take note of outstanding verdicts and settlements from around the country on our blog. Today an Arizona jury awarded $11 million to the widow of a 36 year old victim of a traumatic brain injury that occured at an assisted living facility.
While a resident at the facility his caregivers force fed him plastic bags, catsup packets, paper towels and candy wrappers which caused an obstruction of his GI tract. These foreign body obstructions directly caused the patients death.
Every patient at every facility deserves to be cared for in a humane and dignified way.
