Nursing home wrongful death lawsuit filed against Alden Lakeland

While a resident of Alden Lakeland Rehab and Healthcare center, an 80-year old man developed multiple bed sores, became malnourished and septic and eventually died from complications of these injuries. The man’s family has decided to proceed with a wrongful death lawsuit against the Chicago nursing home on behalf of the 80-year old man. The family is represented by attorneys Michael F. Bonamarte and Steven M. Levin, two Chicago attorneys from the law firm Levin & Perconti, who have been representing victims of nursing home abuse and neglect since 1992. The lawsuit alleges the nursing staff members at Alden Lakeland were negligent in failing to assess the resident for his risk of developing pressure sores and in failing to provide treatment to the man’s pressure sores once they developed. The home also allowed the man to become malnourished during his residency at the facility.
