Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter: $925,000 settlement with HCR ManorCare

A $925,000 settlement achieved by Steven Levin and Michael Bonamarte of Levin & Perconti was reported in the July 2007 issue of the Illinois Jury Verdict Reporter. The plaintiff was a resident of Manorcare at South Holland and as a result of neglect in the nursing home, the resident developed serious bed sores. The pressure sores became infected, causing the resident to suffer from osteomyelitis, sepsis, malnutrition and dehydration. As a result of these injuries, the patient ultimately died.
