Negligence and Wrongful Death against 2-year-old

The family of 2-year-old, Evelyn Zagal, known as Evie who was born with a malformation that covered her face and neck, has filed a civil suit alleging seven counts of negligence and wrongful death. The suit is against EvieĆ¢€™s nighttime home-health-care nurse, Edna Briggs-Gunther, and the agency she worked for, Oak Park-based Independence Plus Inc. Evie survived in and out of hospitals for much of her short life and had started to improve after a risky 2005 surgery to remove the mass of lymph nodes and blood vessels. Her unexpected death on May 11, 2006, due to complications with her trachea tube led her family to file the lawsuit.
