Levin & Perconti files negligence lawsuit against Illinois nursing home for failing to prevent and treat pressure sores

Steven M. Levin and Margaret P. Battersby of Levin & Perconti filed a nursing home negligence lawsuit against an Illinois nursing home last week. The nursing home lawsuit was filed in Cook County and brought on behalf of a 77 year-old woman. The Illinois nursing home lawsuit alleges that the nursing home failed to monitor and treat pressure sores that ultimately contributed to the 77 year-old’s death.

Family members of the nursing home neglect victim recognized that she had pressure sores during visits to the Illinois nursing home. She was taken to a hospital where she was diagnosed with sepsis, dehydration, and pneumonia. She died from these illnesses weeks later.
