A McHenry, Illinois woman alleges that poor care at a Lake Zurich nursing home led to her mother’s shattered hip. Due to this elderly negligence, Levin & Perconti has filed a lawsuit against the facility. The nursing home negligence lawsuit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court against the Lexington Health Care Center of Lake Zurich, on behalf of Edna Kneidek who was 83. “We hope that our case will bring about changes at Lexington so that other residents don’t suffer like my mother did,” said Lisa. “We visited often, but there are so many residents who do not have family nearby to speak up for them. We do not want anyone else to go through what my mother went through.” The daughter alleges that her mother fell five times during 2007 while undergoing care at the nursing home despite staff member’s knowledge that she was at risk for falling. A fall in August of 2007 prompted the lawsuit when the woman allegedly fell and then complained to staff members of severe hip pain. However, staff members allegedly did not transfer her to a hospital for another five days. X-rays showed that the woman had shattered her left hip and realized she also had pneumonia.
