$1.75MM Settlement for Nursing Home Abuse Victim


Estate of Jane Doe v. XYZ Nursing Home in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida (Names changed for Privacy Purposes)


Broward County Circuit Court


David W. Lipcon of Lipcon & Lipcon, P.A.

92-year-old nursing home resident was a victim of an assault and battery by an employee of ABC Nursing Home. We only know this because the family of our client spent a lot of time visiting their mother/grandmother. One day she was perfectly fine and the next day she was covered in bruises and could barely speak. Unfortunately, our client was not able to verbalize what had happened to her. The nursing home tried to blame her severe facial bruising and lack of cognitive ability on a “fall.” However, the record showed no evidence of a fall.


David Lipcon was able to open an investigation, secure statements by witnesses and prove that what in fact happened, was an assault and battery against our client by an untrained, unlicensed employee of the nursing home. In lieu of going to trial and being exposed to punitive damages, the nursing home settle the case for $1,750,000.00.
