talllady-17-foot-7, Sandy Allen, the world tallest woman died yesterday in an Indiana nursing home.  Sandy Allen was 53-years old.  Ms. Allen received care at Shelbyville Nursing Home for medical conditions related to her extreme height.  Poor circulation in her legs caused Ms. Allen to rely on a wheelchair for getting about.  Although Sandy Allen weighed just 6.5 pounds at birth, she developed quickly.  By the age of 10, she was 6 feet 3 inches. By the time Ms. Allen was 16, she was 7 feet 1 inch.

Justia Lawyer Rating for Jonathan Rosenfeld

Client Reviews

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa
After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
