Preventable Falls Lawsuit Against Genesis

Written by

Sonja G. Anderson, as executor of the estate of Delores A. Anderson, filed a complaint in West Virginia against Heritage Center and Genesis Healthcare LLC, alleging violated a nursing home resident’s rights.

According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during Delores Anderson’s residency at defendants’ nursing home facility beginning in Dec. 16, 2017, she suffered multiple falls resulting in nondisplaced left inferior and superior pubic rami fractures, multiple left forearm contusions, skin tears and left frontal scalp hematoma. She passed away on March 14, 2018.

The plaintiff holds Heritage Center and Genesis Healthcare LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to provide an environment free from abuse, neglect and mistreatment and free from accident hazards, and failed to provide adequate and appropriate supervision and assistance.

The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks all damages, attorney’s fees, costs and such other relief that is fit to award.
