CHICAGO — A deceased man's family has filed a wrongful death claim against Beecher Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center LLC, alleging negligence in nursing home care.
Patrick Hisel, independent executor of the estate of Howard D. Hisel, filed a complaint on Jan. 30 in Cook County Circuit Court against Beecher Manor Nursing and Rehabilitation Center LLC, alleging the nursing facility failed to provide proper care to Howard Hisel.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges Hisel suffered a fall resulting in a head injury that contributed to his death. The plaintiff holds Beecher Manor responsible because the defendant allegedly failed to inform Hisel's attending physician that he suffered a fall.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against the defendant in an amount that exceeds the jurisdictional limits of this court. He is represented by Elizabeth A. Kaveny and Brian T. Monico of Burke Wise Morrissey & Kaveny in Chicago.
