Three Women Indicted in Oregon Nursing Home Death


D’Amore & Associates filed a lawsuit on behalf of the family of Linda Ober who was dropped at a nursing home while being transferred from her bed to her wheelchair.  She suffered serious fractures to both legs in the fall and was left in bed without medical care for days.

Her repeated cries for help were ignored or dismissed by the staff as a “bad dream”.   She died shortly after finally being sent to the hospital.  Criminal charges have been filed against some of the nursing home staff as well.  Many news outlets have done articles about this case.  Please visit the links below for their full stories.
