New York City bedsore lawyer Samantha Kucher releases a new article (https://www.rrklawgroup.com/how-much-is-a-bedsore-lawsuit-worth/) discussing the factors that can make a bedsore lawsuit worth more. The lawyer explains that bedsore lawsuits can be valued anywhere between low five figures and several million dollars depending on the particular case. However, nothing is guaranteed.
“The value of a bedsore lawsuit can be affected by many things, such as the location where the lawsuit is filed, the resident's overall health, relationships with family members, the insurance coverage available, and the skills of the attorney. A case that is otherwise strong could be made less so by a specific set of facts,” says the New York City bedsore lawyer.
The lawyer explains that every bedsore case is unique so there is generally no standard procedure as to what makes the lawsuit worth more. The stronger the case the plaintiff has, the more likely that the nursing home will settle the matter. There may also be other cases that can make the case worth more.
Attorney Samantha Kucher adds that the nursing home may be able to defend itself by claiming that the resident was unable to avoid the injury because of an underlying health condition of the resident. However, the case may be stronger for the plaintiff if the resident does not have any comorbidities at all.
In the article, attorney Kucher adds, “Judges and members of the jury also respond to the residents' lives in the community, as well as the family of the victim. Nursing homes are more likely to be more willing to settle if the resident's family is very involved in the resident's life and has cared for them for a long time. These family members may make better witnesses should the case reach court.”
Lastly, New York bedsore attorney Samantha Kucher urges family members to be observant. Once a family member spots a sign of neglect, they should report it right away in order for their loved one to avoid any form of suffering.
