EDWARDSVILLE — A Madison County woman is suing multiple health care defendants, alleging their negligence caused the wrongful death of her father.
Peggy McKinnon, as executor of the estate of Dorse McKinnon, deceased filed a lawsuit July 12 in Madison County Circuit Court against Stearns Nursing and RehabilitationCenter LLC, Aurora Cares LLC, doing business as Tara Cares, Stearns Company LLC, Brent Hoffman, Jerry Nelson and Arthur Crowl, alleging violation of the Illinois Nursing Home Care Act.
According to the complaint, on July 13, 2014, Dorse McKinnon, who suffered from Alzheimer's disease and was a resident at defendants' facility at 3900 Stearns Ave., Granite City, was caused to fall by Crowl, resulting ultimately in McKinnon's death July 23, 2014.
The plaintiff alleges the defendants failed to provide a safe environment, failed to provide proper personal care for their residents, failed to provide adequate supervision and failed to adequately monitor their residents.
Peggy McKinnon seeks a trial by jury, judgment of more than $50,000, attorney fees and legal costs, plus all other appropriate relief. She is represented by attorney Shaun M. Lieser of Lieser Law Firm LLC in St. Louis.
