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.

Client Reviews

  • Having worked in the medical field, I appreciated the way that Mr. Rosenfeld and his staff approached my family’s situation. The combination of medical knowledge and legal expertise was indeed the winning combination for our case.
    ★★★★★
  • While nothing can change the way our mother was treated at a nursing facility, I do feel a sense of vindication that the facility was forced to pay for their treatment. I am certain that they would never have done had my attorneys not held their feet to the fire.
    ★★★★★
  • I was very nervous about initiating a claim against my mother’s nursing facility, but Rosenfeld Injury Lawyers took care of everything from getting the medical records to going to court. I felt like I had real advocates on my side. That meant a lot to me.
    ★★★★★
  • After a horrific episode at a nursing home, my sister and I spoke to a number of law firms. No one took the time to answer our questions and explain the legal process like Mr. Rosenfeld. He did a tremendous job on our case and I can see why he’s earned the praise he has from clients and peers.
    ★★★★★
  • I liked the fact that I could call the office and ask questions about the legal process at anytime. I could tell that my case was in good hands. I think that this was reflected in my father’s settlement was more than I anticipated the case ever being worth.
