Robert S. Miller and Julianna Merback Burdo, partners in the firm’s catastrophic injury team, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Teaneck Nursing Center and others after a 61 year-old resident was left overnight, unattended, and froze to death on February 15, 2022. After having been noted to be absent from his resident room for hours, staff found George Foster on the ground next to his wheelchair on the Facility’s outside patio. Temperatures that night fell below 15 degrees. News reports detail the grief felt by his family following his unnecessary death, the staff’s flagrant violations of written protocol, and the nursing home’s utter disregard for Mr. Foster’s safety and wellbeing.
