James Beck secures $900,000 settlement from DSHS

Gordon Thomas Honeywell LLP, November 2018

The estate of a 74 year old woman who was neglected and abused while at Western State Hospital has settled with the Department of Social Services for $900,000. “She came into Western State ambulatory and left in a wheelchair after a significant fall,” attorney James Beck, who represented Struthers’ daughter Lisa K. Bowser, told The News Tribune. “Our position on it was that the poor treatment that she received there materially caused her demise.” For the complete story visit: https://www.thenewstribune.com/news/local/article221593595.html
