Negligence: Jury Verdict

In 2015, Rico Alvendia and his trial team won a jury verdict of $1,750,000 in New Orleans, LA, for the family of a elderly woman, Mrs. Francis Robinette, who died in a nursing home soon after Hurricane Katrina struck the city. The nursing home staff failed to evacuate Mrs. Robinette and over 100 other people as Katrina approached, despite the fact that many of the Nursing Home’s own staff and organizational members were previously evacuated safely.
