DeBlasio & Gower Pursues Medical Malpractice Lawsuit Against DuPage County Rehab Facility After Patient Falls / Suffers Permanent Brain Damage, Dies.

The law firm of DeBlasio & Gower is representing the estate of a woman in a medical malpractice and negligence lawsuit in the Circuit Court of DuPage County.  The decedent / patient sustained serious injuries, including permanent brain damage, when she fell and hit her head on the floor at a rehabilitation facility located in DuPage County.  She later died.

In the lawsuit, the estate claims that the Defendants knew or should have known that the patient was at serious risk for falls because of her recent knee surgery and other medical conditions limiting her ability to stand and/or walk without assistance.    The estate also alleges that, despite these known risks, the Defendants left the plaintiff standing alone in the facility without adequate assistance.
