Confidential Settlement Reached in Assistant Living Case for Failure to Prevent Fall

Fannie Dillard lived at Springfield Residences, an assisted living facility.  After she fell, she developed sepsis and a Stage IV decubitus ulcer on her sacrum, which led to her unfortunate death more than a year later.

She was survived by her daughter.  Dillard’s daughter sued the facility, alleging claims of wrongful death and a survival claim.

Before trial, the Dillard family and assisted living facility reached a confidential settlement for an undisclosed amount.

The attorney successfully representing Dillard’s family was Andrew Ominsky.

Dillard v. Carrington Place of Chestnut Hill LLC, No. 19-11884 (Pa. Ct. Com. Pl. Montgomery County).
