Cases filed in 2013

Every year our attorneys file a number of nursing home abuse and neglect cases on behalf of individuals and families throughout Illinois. 

Here is a list of some of our most recently filed lawsuits:

  • S.W. v California Gardens Nursing and Rehabilitation Center (Chicago) A nursing home fall case for a 47-year-old client who suffered a neck fracture in a fall at the facility. Our client was a known risk for falls and required supervision and assistance moving around.
  • S.G. for R.G. v Seminary Manor (Galesburg) This lawsuit was brought on behalf of the family of a 91-year-old nursing home resident who died two weeks after being admitted to the defendant facility. Our client suffered from constipation but staff failed to identify or treat her symptoms of a small bowel obstruction for thirteen days. As a result, she died as a result of septic shock.
  • M.S. v. Alden Town Manor (Cicero) Our 92-year-old client was documented to be a high fall risk when she was admitted to the defendant nursing home. The facility’s staff failed to provide appropriate supervision or assistance and our client fell, suffering an eye injury that required surgery.
  • R.J. for M.J. v. Rosewood Care Center of Joliet , Provena St. Joseph Medical Center, et al. Our 72-year-old client was discharged from the defendant hospital to the defendant nursing home with medication orders for herself and another patient. The defendant nursing home gave her both her medications for four days, causing her to suffer kidney failure. After being hospitalized, she returned to the defendant facility, where she suffered a knee injury in a fall.
  • J.P. for M.P. v. Claremont Rehab and Living Center (Buffalo Grove) This is a lawsuit involving a 75-year-old nursing resident who fell twice at the defendant nursing home. In her first fall she suffered a closed head injury and broken collar bone. She fell again ten months later and broke her hip. The suit alleges that staff violated federal and state nursing home laws by failing to properly assess her fall risk or develop, implement, and revise a care plan to address her risk, and these failures caused her injuries.

I want to send my heartfelt thanks to John Perconti and the Levin & Perconti staff in taking our case. Not only were they so professional but also so caring and thoughtful. It was very difficult going over the facts in our mother's case but they were so compassionate and understanding and allowed us to be with them every step of the way. We were able to sit in on the depositions and we were really able to see how hard they worked on our behalf. M.R.Z., nursing home client
