Elderly Resident of Assisted Living Facility Receives $5.35 Million from Jury After Attack By Fire Ants
A Madison County jury rendered a verdict in favor of 79-year-old Lucille Devers, a resident of an assisted living facility, in the amount of $5.35 million dollars, for injuries she suffered in a horrifying fire ant attack.
Ms. Devers called her daughter one hot summer day and told her she had “stickers in her legs.” Subsequent events revealed that Ms. Devers was attacked by fire ants, an event which was not disclosed to her family by the assisted living facility.
A thorough investigation also revealed that the company responsible for controlling pests at the facility, Terminix, performed its duties negligently.
