HUNTINGTON – The daughter of an elderly woman who died while in the care of an assisted living center filed a lawsuit alleging wrongful death and negligence against the facility and its two predecessors in interest.
Toni G. Milmoe, executrix of the estate of Thelma Marie Sturgeon, filed her complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Paramount Senior Living at Ona LLC; its predecessor, Passage Midland Meadows Operations LLC; and that company's predecessor, Midland Meadows Senior Living LLC, which was the facility's identity when Sturgeon went to live there.
Sturgeon was found on June 10, 2017, on a roadside and was transported to St. Mary's Hospital for treatment, the lawsuit said. She showed signs of injuries from falls during the time she left the facility and before, the lawsuit said. Those injuries eventually contributed to her death, the lawsuit said.
The defendant had allegedly been negligent in maintaining watch over the decedent and as a result of their negligence she was caused to slip and fall repeatedly during her time at the facility, which eventually led to her death.
Milmoe, demanding a jury trial, seeks compensation, all reasonable sums due, attorney fees and court costs. She is represented by W. Stephen FlesherLLC in Huntington.
