The attorneys of the O’Connor Law Group, LLC have significant experience handling nursing home neglect and abuse cases. Under the direction of attorney Bryan J. O’Connor, the attorneys of the O’Connor Law Group have recovered millions for nursing home neglect victims including:
- $2.25 million jury verdict for a 78 year-old female nursing home resident who was sexually assaulted by an aide who fled the country following the assault. There was no apparent physical evidence of assault. We were able to locate the assailant in Mexico, and were able to take his deposition in remote area. Although the assailant denied he sexually abused our client, we were able to find an ex-employee who confirmed our client’s testimony. Bryan J. O’Connor was the trial attorney.
- $1 million settlement to family of 93 year old woman sexually assaulted in nursing home in Melrose Park. Our client had severe Alheimer’s Disease and could not speak, but because she was acting strangely the family insisted that she be taken to the hospital, where evidence of rape was found. Although it could not be established if an employee or someone else committed the assault, the case settled on the eve of trial. Bryan J. O’Connor handled this case.
- $610,000 jury verdict for family of 91 year old nursing home resident who fell or was dropped on her head during transfer from bed to wheelchair. She died some 9 months later. This case was hotly contested, and we were able to prove that the nursing home staff violated the Nursing Home Care Act, and that resident’s death was caused by head injuries sustained in the incident. Bryan J O’Connor was trial counsel.
- $800,000 settlement to family of a 78 year old nursing home resident who was sexually molested in nursing home by unidentified assailant. Again, because of the client’s mental condition, it could not be established whether the client was molested by a nursing home employee or someone else, but the case settled shortly before trial. Bryan J O’Connor was trial counsel.
