Nursing Home Verdict and Maryland Law

This is another “anywhere else than Maryland” wrongful death nursing home verdict. A jury in Kentucky awarded $42.75 million to a 92 year-old man’s family who claimed neglect during a nine day stay at a nursing home, saying the home’s neglect led to the man’s death, according to court documents.

Put this in context. In Maryland, the maximum recovery in this case – excluding any medical bills – would have been $812,500.
