Levin & Perconti Files a Nursing Home Abuse and Neglect Lawsuit Against Summit Assisted Living Naperville North

Levin & Perconti have filed a nursing home abuse and neglect lawsuit against Summit Assisted Living Naperville North for the wrongful death of an 87-year old woman under the Illinois Assisted Living Act. The woman entered the Summit Assisted Living center in 2005 with a condition called Meniere’s disease which disrupts a person’s normal balance in the inner ear, making her more susceptible than a normal resident to falls and losing her balance. However, the assisted living facility did not accommodate for her disorder and she fell 7 times in a 5 month period, leading to a fractured hip, multiple lacerations, and injuries to her right knee and back. This is an assisted living wrongful death action because the woman’s injuries – her fractured hip, damaged knee, lacerations and back injuries – precipitated her death.
