Goldberg & Goldberg Files Wrongful Death Lawsuit on Behalf of a 91 year-old Alzheimer's Patient Who Froze to Death Outside a Retirement Community
Date:2/8/2013

Chicago, Illinois (PRWEB) February 08, 2013

On February 6, 2013, Ian R. Alexander of the Chicago law firm of Goldberg & Goldberg filed a wrongful death case in the Circuit Court of Cook County, 13 L 1318, on behalf of the Estate of Genevieve Klimczak who died on February 12, 2012. Ms. Klimczak was a resident of McHenry Villa, a self described “retirement community” offering 24 hour a day security…”so residents can leave the worries of living alone behind them.” McHenry Villa and Home Instead, Inc. have been named as defendants in the lawsuit. McHenry Villa is located at 3516 W. Waukegan Road in McHenry, Illinois.

According to court documents, on February 12, 2012, Genevieve Klimczak a 91 year old resident of McHenry Villa with Alzheimer’s disease was allowed to elope from her room at McHenry Villa and walk out of the building through a self-locking door that could not be opened from the outside. Ms. Klimczak’s body was found the next morning by employees of McHenry Villa. The temperature overnight was as low as 7 degrees Fahrenheit. At the time, Ms Klimczak was being attended by caregivers from Home Instead, Inc. Ms. Klimczak is survived by her nephews, Donald Lorenz and John Lorenz, and her niece, Evelyn Marthalar.. Mrs. Klimczak was a lifelong resident of the Chicago area.

Goldberg & Goldberg is a Chicago law firm that concentrates its practice in representing the victims of Medical Malpractice and other complex personal injury litigation. To date, Goldberg & Goldberg has obtained in excess of 150 separate verdicts and settlements in excess of $1 million with an aggregate recovery total in excess of $1 billion. According to Ian Alexander, “Our senior citizens, especially those with memory impairment issues, are to be cherished. Allowing Ms. Klimczak to leave her room, exit McHenry Villa and freeze to death is unacceptable. The Klimczak family and the public in general rely on facilities like McHenry Villa to protect their loved ones. Ms. Klimczak should not have spent her last hours freezing to death on a sidewalk.”

Please contact Ian R. Alexander at 312-368-0255 with any questions.
