Gwinnett County Mother Secures Bell Law Firm After Scalding Water Leads to Son’s Wrongful Death
Mary Anne Downing, mother of the deceased Bradley Downing, secured Lloyd Bell of Bell Law Firm, to file a wrongful death action in Dekalb County against Complete Care at Home, LLC — a home health care company. In April of 2018, an employee of Complete Care inflicted severe burns to Mr. Downing, leading to complications that ultimately caused his death.
Family members say that despite living with a disability, Bradley Downing had a good life. The 41-year-old graduated from North Gwinnett High School and was well-known and loved in his community.
“The case is really about shedding a light on improper training and supervision of the home health care professional,” comments Lloyd Bell. “This never should’ve happened.”
The lawsuit, filed in DeKalb County State Court, says the Dunwoody-based company Complete Care at Home was negligent and caused the wrongful death of Downing. Plaintiff Mary Anne Downing seeks the full value of the life taken from Bradley Downing, as well as damages for funeral costs and other damages including physical, economic and emotional injuries.
