Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath Announces Press Conference for Wednesday, May 18 at 10:00 a.m.

Wife of Retired Michigan State Representative who died from alleged negligence in a local Boca Raton facility will hold a press conference


Trial Attorney Darla L. Keen, a partner at Lytal, Reiter, Smith, Ivey & Fronrath, will be conducting a press conference on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. at the firm's West Palm Beach office.

Decedent was a U.S. Army veteran and a U.S. State Representative from Michigan for 18 years, where he fought for the rights of our elderly.  Decedent's wife was former Deputy Mayor of Boca. When the wife needed a short-term placement for her husband, she turned to a facility in Boca to keep him safe.

Instead, the facility allegedly allowed him to wander off two miles away, where he suffered a fall and a head injury. According to the decedent's wife, the owner of the Boca facility convinced Decedent's wife to transfer her husband to its sister facility in Lantana for daily 24-hour supervision.

Once transferred to Lantana, he began suffering seizures and was placed in a chair unattended in the dining room while having seizures. Foreseeably, he fell out of the chair, hit his head, and died two days later from a brain hemorrhage.

Attorney Keen will provide further information at the press conference and will be making an announcement on behalf of the family. Decedent's wife will be present.
