Jury Verdict for Manor Care Largo - No Breach in Standard of Care

By: GDLD | 4.1.12 | Case Results

On April 10, 2012, Thomas V. Monahan, Jr. and Elizabeth A. Hafey obtained a defense verdict in favor of Manor Care Largo MD, LLC, a nursing home in Prince George’s County, after a six-day trial. In Lissa Ross v. Manor Care Largo, the 10 children of James Johnson alleged that their father fell from a wheelchair at Manor Care Largo, sustained an injury to his brain that necessitated surgery six days later and, ultimately, died less than 24 hours after the brain surgery. After hearing defense experts in geriatrics, neurosurgery and neuroradiology, the jury concluded that there was no breach in the standard of care by any nurses or staff at Manor Care Largo.
