According to the complaint, Rogers was admitted to the defendant's facility in October 2016 for nursing home and rehabilitative services. The suit states she suffered an unwitnessed fall in November 2016 and February 2017 and also developed pressure ulcers. The suit states she died in May 2017.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendant for damages of more than $50,000. She is represented by Marc S. Weissman of The Law Offices of Steven J. Malman & Associates PC in Chicago.
