Mother Sues Caregivers in Adult Son's Death
The Herald-News in Joliet reports that Teresa Gale filed the lawsuit Monday in Will County. She claims a caregiver for her 30-year-old son didn't seek help soon enough to prevent his death. The lawsuit states Eduardo Formanski died Sept. 17, 2011, six days after a fight with his roommate at a group home operated by Individual Advocacy Group.\
Attorney Robert Karr is representing the mother. He says the roommate - who was nearly twice Formanski's size - was on top of him during the fight and smothered him.
Charlene Bennett, executive director of Individual Advocacy Group, declined to comment on the lawsuit.
