Share this post

A disabled Region resident has received a 12-million dollar settlement -- said to be one of the largest in the state -- from a home health care agency based in Crown Point, after suffering burns and complications resulting in further brain damage, reports say, due to the actions of a home health care worker.  Family members say 47-year-old James Kosinski, who required 24-hour care due to multiple disabilities, was placed in scalding hot bath water. Reports say Kosinski currently lives in a chair near a nursing station at a Chicago nursing home.
