HUNTINGTON – A Pritchard man has filed a suit against a Barboursville nursing facility and another medical facility over allegations they failed to provide a resident with adequate supervision to prevent accidents.
Peter Freeman, power of attorney of John Freeman, filed a complaint in Cabell Circuit Court against Chateau Grove Inc., doing business as Chateau Grove Senior Living; 101 13th Street Operations, doing business as Heritage Center; and Genesis Healthcare LLC alleging negligence and reckless misconduct.
The suit states John Freeman was a resident of Chateau Grove Senior Living in Barboursville from Sept. 1 through Sept. 27, 2018. On Oct. 3, 2018, Freeman was admitted to Heritage Center for rehabilitation.
The plaintiff claims that due to the defendants' lack of adequate supervision, John Freeman fell and suffered fractures to his pelvis and neck area while at Chateau. The plaintiff also alleges Heritage failed to provide a safe environment that led to Freeman's dehydration, which resulted in his fall and injuries.
The plaintiff seeks damages, a trial by jury and all other just relief. He is represented by Jeff Stewart, Andrew Paternostro and S. Stonestreet of Stewart/Bell PLLC in Charleston.
The case has been assigned to Circuit Judge Paul T. Farrell.
