Ms. Doe was a resident of an assisted living facility. She was an elderly woman who suffered from severe dementia. While residing at this facility, Ms. Doe experienced several falls.
A month after suffering fractures from one of the falls, she passed away. The family brought a lawsuit against the assisted living facility for choosing not to perform timely fall risk assessments of its residents, including Ms. Doe.
The case settled before trial for $250,000.
