The Cochran Firm DC attorney secures trial victory for nursing home abuse and neglect victim’s family in Spotsylvania County, Virginia Circuit Court

The Cochran Firm, DC today announces the important trial victory secured by nursing home abuse and neglect attorney W. Charles Meltmar in a negligence case filed against a Fredericksburg, Virginia-based elder care provider.  Meltmar won a $1.28 million verdict, plus interest, for the family of a deceased client who suffered severe burns while under the care of a nursing home facility.

“This trial sends a message to the community that negligent and careless conduct by nursing homes will not be tolerated,” Meltmar, nursing home abuse and neglect attorney with The Cochran Firm DC, said.  “We hope this verdict will be a catalyst for positive change in the operational behavior of nursing home and elder care facilities throughout Virginia and the Washington, D.C. region.”
