In the past, insurance companies seemed to place little value on the death or injury of an older person in a nursing home. Insurance adjusters argued that because elderly victims were not working or productive, they or their survivors deserved less compensation in cases of serious injury or wrongful death.
Fortunately, times have changed. Jurors who hear evidence of nursing homes neglecting or abusing their residents become incensed and often award significant damage awards for the victims. Elderly people may not have a long lifespan ahead of them, but it’s their life to live and enjoy. They may have fewer years to live, but we think that makes those years more valuable, not less.
