Frederick Buckner filed a lawsuit March 24 in Cook County Circuit Court against suing South Suburban Rehabilitation Center LLC in Homewood, alleging negligence resulting in injury and violation of the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act by failing to exercise due care and caution in providing care, treatment and supervision.
