Lawsuit filed against Chicago area nursing home

Levin & Perconti has recently filed a lawsuit on behalf of a woman who suffered several falls as a result of neglect at her Chicago area nursing home. The home, Wauconda Healthcare and Rehabilitation, acted neglectfully in that it knew that the woman was a risk for falls but failed to provide the necessary supervision and assistance to prevent them. The suit alleges that falls caused by the neglect of the nursing home eventually led to bruises, lacerations, a broken hip, a deterioration of her physical and mental condition, a loss of dignity and respect, and the loss of the ability to ambulate. Unfortunately, this woman’s story of inadequate supervision and assistance in light of her known risks for injury is all too common.
