Hospital Negligence

An 87 year old woman slipped and fell while a patient at a local hospital. As a result of the fall, she died 17 days later. Her adult daughter alleged that when her mother was admitted to the hospital, the hospital was instructed that she could not be left unattended and had trouble getting around on her own, but a nurse’s aid had left the elderly woman standing alone. The hospital denied the incident and our investigation of the hospital records revealed three different descriptions of how the accident occurred. After further investigation and extensive litigation, we settled the case in an amount in excess of $450,000. The Wynn and Wynn team that handled this case was Catherine M. Douglas, Paul F. Wynn and Thomas J. Wynn.
