CHICAGO — A guardian is suing a group home for autistic residents over allegations of serious burns during a shower.
Syed Hussaini, guardian of one of the home's residents, is suing Rimland Services NFP, an Illinois corporation, alleging negligence and insufficient measures taken to prevent injuries.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that on Jan. 30, the resident suffered second-degree burns on her body. The plaintiff holds the defendant responsible for allegedly failing to provide adequate supervision during the resident's shower to make sure the water wasn't too hot.
