We recently settled the case for Peccola Tippett, who was dropped and sustained injuries at a local nursing home. Peccola was in her eighties and had significant health issues. However, she should not have been dropped. This caused a closed head injury. Like with any older person suffering such an injury, she was more susceptible to pneumonia and other results of this type of injury, and succumbed to them unfortunately. This case settled for a confidential sum against both the physician and the hospital.
