Valuing My Manor Care Nursing Home Lawsuit – What is my Manor Care Case Worth?

There is no set way to determine how much a Manor Care lawsuit is worth. Every Manor Care case is valued separately based on the case facts. Here are some past Manor Care lawsuit verdicts and Manor Care case settlements involving nursing home neglect:

  • $91.5 Million Verdict against an Illinois Manor Care facility.  An Eighty Seven year old female was admitted to an Illinois Manor Care nursing home. She was capable of independently ambulating (walking). Within 25 days of her admission to the Manor Care facility, she died due to nursing home neglect. Even though she could walk on her own, Manor Care staff kept her in a wheelchair. Manor Care staff failed to provide her basic needs such as water, food and bathing. The Manor Care neglect lawsuit was so enraging that the Illinois jury awarded a verdict of $11,500,000 in compensatory damages, plus an additional $80,000,000 in punitive damages and $11.5 million in compensatory damages.
