Timothy Conklin is suing on behalf of Florence Conklin in a wrongful death suit at a nursing home facility. The wrongful death lawsuit on February 3rd, 2014 in the Cook County District Court against registered nurse Susan Larson and Regency Rehabilitation Center LLC, Sir Management Inc. In addition, the lawsuit has also named Dr. Mitchell Kaminski Jr. as a respondent in discovery.
Our attorneys, Jordan S. Powell and Katherine Moorhouse, are representing Conklin.
Florence Conklin lived at Regency Rehabilitation Center LLC at 6631 Milwaukee Ave. in Niles from November 15, 2008 to February 5, 2012. We allege that the defendants did not take proper care of Florence, which resulted in sores that eventually became infected and needed surgery. This is a common form of neglect in nursing homes across the United States, i.e., sores that go untreated. When left untreated, the consequences can be dire and life threatening. Obviously, the latter was the case for Florence, and that is why we are representing the case, to fight for her rights.
IL Nursing Home Lawsuit
We assert that, due to the Regency Rehabilitation Center’s negligence, Florence died on February 2nd, 2012. We are therefore seeking damages as a result of her death in excess of $50,000, along with court costs. If Regency Rehabilitation Center had taken appropriate measures, Florence would not have died from sores that could have been been easily treated. Florence is not the only person who has fallen victim to a tragic, untimely, and unnecessary death.
In fact, our law firm handles many of these cases, because we believe families and their loved ones deserve to have a voice in the courtroom, especially when it comes to negligence, abuse, and wrongful death.
In addition, we also represent families who have loved ones who have suffered injuries from neglect. For instance, two other attorneys in our law firm are representing a man in a case that involves a resident who developed sores in his left heel. The sores eventually became gangrenous, the infection spread, and the man’s entire leg had to be amputated. Like Conklin, if this man had received proper care, he would still have a leg and foot. Our attorneys in this case are also seeking $50,000 in damages, as well as court costs and other fees.
Unfortunately, these cases are all too common across the United States. That is why we urge clients to take detailed notes on potential neglect and abuse. In addition to taking good notes, we also urge you to find the best representation in your time of need.
