Two lawyers from small California firms worked together to prosecute a nursing home neglect case and won a $28 million settlement.
The attorneys, Edward Dudensing and Jay Renneisen, took on the case of a 79-year-old woman who lost her life after a fractured hip and bedsores went untreated in her nursing home.
Horizon West, which owns facilities in California and Utah, failed to diagnose and treat Frances Tanner for eight days after she fell and fractured her hip. She developed the bedsore during that eight-day span.The victim also suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia.
Dudensing and Renneisen claimed in their case that the nursing home was severely understaffed and had a faulty structure set up that prevented patients from being properly cared for.
