Nursing Home Found Negligent After Resident Struck By Facility Bus

Posted By Meyerkord & Meyerkord, LLC || 29-Dec-2016

A lawsuit has been settled against a Wyoming nursing home after one of their residents suffered injuries after being struck by a vehicle driven by a member of their staff. The lawsuit was settled for an undisclosed amount after the legally blind victim was struck while waiting for a ride by the Poplar Living Center. The suit reported that the resident has reported pain and numbness in his arm since the accident. The Poplar Living Center has been sued six times in six years. The lawsuit claimed that the victim was left alone to wait for the bus because the facility is understaffed. The Polar Living Center released a statement that they are improving the care at their center.
