A lawsuit alleging that a resident of the Eddy Heritage House nursing home in Troy who had history of falling died as a result of injuries she received in a fall has been settled.

According to a lawsuit filed against the nursing home and its parent company, Northeast Health, Yvette Dall fell in September 2005. As a result, the suit says, she received numerous injuries, including fractures, lacerations and contusions.

Dall died in June 2007. The suit alleges that her death was a direct result of the injuries she received in the fall.

A recent entry on the court’s Web site indicates that the case has ended with a settlement. Details of it will be obtained shortly and added to this story, which will then be re-posted.
