See recent, important Case Results, Verdicts and Settlements for Dalli & Marino’s clients below.

A jury awarded $3,000,000 to the estate of an elderly man who confused a chemical cleaner for cranberry juice left out in a kitchen next to his dementia unit at a Brooklyn assisted living facility. He died five days after drinking the cleaner in this case of clear resident neglect by the staff.
A $1 million settlement was given to the family of a 99-year-old Staten Island man who died from injuries he suffered at the hands of health care aides in his home. A hidden camera recorded various acts of negligence by the attendants, including sleeping on the job and ignoring the man’s cries for assistance. The camera also caught disturbing incidents of abuse including a fall that caused broken ribs and instances of the man being thrown to the floor. The verdict highlights the importance of reaching out to a nursing home abuse lawyer when families become suspicious of health care providers.
A jury awarded $750,000 to an elderly paralyzed man who suffered from neglect and abuse at a skilled nursing facility in Bronx County. The resident was often left in a wheelchair without being moved as required by his care plan. The chair had improper cushioning, promoting once-closed bedsores to re-open. The jury determined that the staff failed to follow proper protocols around these difficult-to-treat sores, and that the unfortunate incident was indeed nursing home neglect.
A female resident immobile with multiple sclerosis was sexually assaulted at a New York City nursing home by an attendant who had blocked entry to her room with a chair. A nurse on rounds realized she couldn’t enter that resident’s room. By the time she gained entry, the assault had ended. But the resident was able to tell staff what had occurred. Later, another resident came forward to reveal that the same attendant had raped her repeatedly for several months. The unsupervised employee, who had been assaulting patients for six months, went to jail. The initial female resident received $700,000 for suffering this extreme example of patient abuse in a nursing home.
$400,000 was awarded to the estate of an elderly woman whose fractured hip was determined to be the result of nursing home neglect and abuse at a Bronx facility. The staff failed to properly assess her as a fall risk when she first arrived and then failed again to sufficiently monitor her during her stay. She later fell, fracturing her hip. Falls are the #1 cause of injuries to senior citizens. Nursing home falls are the result of poor staffing as well as a lack of preventative measures such as protective floor mats, lowered beds and bed alarms. Residents’ falls in these skilled nursing facilities are a common but tragic result of nursing home neglect.
$350,000 was recovered on behalf of the estate of an elderly woman who was fatally injured from an improper diet in her Bronx County nursing home. The resident was on an all-puree diet due to her swallowing issues. Unfortunately, one day the prescribed diet was not followed, and the resident choked on a piece of meat, dying from the staff’s error. The entire incident was a sad example of nursing home negligence.
A Queens nursing home had to pay $300,000 in punitive damages for having multiple and inconsistent medical records for a patient who had sued because of bedsores. The nursing home had provided records upon request prior to the lawsuit filing. When asked the same request in litigation several years later, the nursing home delivered a set that were different from the original batch. The jury penalized the facility for this attempted deception, underscoring the importance of nursing home abuse lawyers in these types of cases.
A jury awarded $400,000 to the estate of an elderly Nassau County man who fell three times in his first week at a nursing home. The last fall caused a fractured hip, requiring surgery. Sadly, the frail patient did not survive the surgery for an incident that was caused directly by the type of nursing home negligence that frequently leads to falls.
A settlement of $450,000 was given to a former female resident at a Brooklyn skilled nursing facility where staff failed to monitor her levels of Coumadin, a blood thinner. This medication error led to swelling, bleeding and the need for blood transfusions. The case reaffirms that families should contact a nursing home abuse lawyer if they suspect errors or negligence.
$490,000 was awarded on behalf of the estate of an elderly female resident in a Brooklyn nursing home who suffered from a bedsore and medication error. The staff failed to monitor her medication, causing the patient to have too much of the blood thinner Coumadin in her system. Coumadin must be monitored because too much can cause patients to bleed out. The blood thinner can also be a potentially lethal co-factor if a patient falls then bleeds.
An elderly male patient entered a Nassau County skilled nursing facility for residential care. However, the staff failed to turn and position him properly, allowing painful bedsores to develop. The facility had to pay $550,000 in a clear case of nursing home neglect.
