The estate of a 90-year-old woman who died after a fall in a nursing home received part of a $125,000 settlement of a lawsuit against Northeast Health Inc.

According to legal papers, Helen L. Remington was a resident of the Eddy-Ford Geriatric Center in Troy in 2005 when she fell, fracturing a hip. She died in Samaritan Hospital six days after the fall, allegedly as a result of her injuries.

In 2008, the claim of negligence was settled. After legal fees of $36,264 and expenses totaling $16,209, the estate received $52,477.

The lawyer for the estate was Sean J. Doolan of Windham, Greene County. The defendants were represented by Thorn, Gershon, Tymann & Bonanni of Albany.

The only result produced by a search of the Times Union archives was Remington’s obituary.
