$1,000,000.00

CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT: The Shaked Firm settled a case for $1,000,000.00 on behalf of a young adult with various mental disabilities who was in an adult day care facility.  The adult day care facility knew that our client’s mental disabilities required that he be constantly supervised and not allowed to go to the bathroom alone.  Because of staffing problems at the adult day care facility on the date of the incident, they were short-staffed and did not have sufficient staff to watch and supervise our client when he went to the bathroom.  The adult day care facility allowed our client to go to the bathroom unsupervised which was contradictory to their own policy and procedures.   While in the bathroom our client suffered a fall resulting in a head injury which ultimately led to his untimely death.  As a result staffing shortage, the adult day care facility didn’t find our client in time to provide emergency care to our client and as a result he died from his injuries.  The adult day care facility attempted to cover up what really happened and try to convince the witnesses to change their story and cover up what really happened.  Fortunately, an employee who witnessed what really happened and refused to participate in the cover up, came forward and contacted our office and informed us of what really happened.  This employee also provided us with documents substantiating the truth.  We were able to utilize this information to convince the defendant and their insurance company that they had a real problem and need to pay the one million ($1,000,000.00) dollar insurance policy limits.
