Wrongful Death of Nursing Home Resident

A lawsuit has been filed for the wrongful death of a nursing home resident. The 33 year old victim, who had suffered a traumatic brain injury at a young age as a result of being beaten, died and the nursing home did not immediately inform the family. When the body was exhumed, it was found that he was likely to have died after being struck in the head with a shower head nozzle. The lawsuit for wrongful death as a result of this nursing home abuse was filed against the state, because he had been placed under the state’s care. The lawsuit is also against his caseworker for her negligence in monitoring his care. The victim had been in a near vegetative state following his brain injury and had been cared for by his mother and his half-sister, until the state determined the sister was not properly caring for him and placed him under the State’s care.
