$1M Nursing Home Negligence Settlement IL

November 8, 2008

One of Lake County’s largest nursing home negligence lawsuits ended this week with a $1 million payment to the family of a Mundelein woman.

Lake County agreed to pay the seven-figure settlement to the family of Helen Menneke, an Alzheimer’s patient who died at 83 while a resident at Winchester House in Libertyville.

A lawsuit filed on behalf of Menneke’s husband and three daughters claimed the county-operated nursing home failed to take proper measures to prevent Menneke’s continuous falls.  SEE LINK BELOW
