A man has sued a Burnham nursing home for allegedly failing to treat his injuries after he was physically kicked out of his wheelchair by another resident. The nursing home abuse lawsuit claims that the man was “kicked by another resident and knocked out of his wheelchair,” which caused him to fracture his leg. The lawsuit was filed in Cook County Circuit Court and states that Burnham Healthcare Properties is liable for supervising its residents and failing to treat Gales’ injuries from the incident in a timely manner. The nursing home lawsuit alleges the nursing home knew of the violent tendencies of the resident and that he had a history of violence with other residents.
