HUNTINGTON – A Huntington woman has filed suit against a nursing home over allegations that its negligence contributed to her decedent's death.
Maria Webber, as personal representative of the estate of Katherine Foley, filed a complaint on June 30 in Cabell Circuit Court against Seventeenth Street Associates LLC, doing business as Huntington Health and Rehabilitation Center; SavaSeniorCare Administrative Services LLC; and SavaSeniorCare Consulting LLC alleging negligence, wrongful death and other counts.
