War Veteran Seeks Justice in Elder Abuse Case Against Nursing Facility
CPM represents George W. Willis, an 88 year old veteran of the Korean War, in an elder abuse case against Culver West, a skilled nursing facility (“SNF”) in Los Angeles. As alleged in the complaint, while at Culver West, Willis suffered from terrible neglect and abuse. He developed a pressure ulcer which extended to his bone (his bone can be seen through the wound), as well as a neck abscess, among other conditions. The case was filed under California’s Elder Abuse Act which protects our State’s seniors from physical abuse and neglect, as well as financial abuse. CPM attorneys Anne Marie Murphy, Eric Buescher and paralegal Valerie De Los Santos are handling the case.
