HOUSTON – A widow is seeking damages from the operators of San Jacinto Manor over her late husband's care.
Joyce Ann Summerlin, individually and on behalf of the estate of James Robert Summerlin, filed a complaint on Dec. 1, 2017, in the Harris County District Court against Pinnacle Health Facilities XXX LP, Preferred Health Facilities GP V, et al. alleging negligence.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff alleges that during James Robert Summerlin's residency at defendants' San Jacinto Manor facility throughout 2015 and 2016, he did not receive the very basic and necessary services he needed. As a result, the plaintiff alleges he suffered injuries and damages and died on Dec. 8, 2016.
The plaintiff holds the defendants responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to sufficiently staff the San Jacinto Manor to meet residents' needs.
The plaintiff seeks economic and non-economic damages, post-judgment interest, costs of court and such other lawful and equitable relief. She is represented by J.T. Borah of The Carlson Law Firm PC in Austin.
