Richardson County Board tables tort claim
08/04/2022

(KLZA)-- Richardson County Commissioners tabled a tort claim filed against Richardson County and Community Medical Center, Incorporated of Falls City when they met Tuesday.

The tort claim was filed by the Atwood, Holsten, Brown, Deave, Spier and Israel Law Firm on behalf of Robert Howard of Falls City. The claim states that Howard has a tort claim against one or both entities in regard to acts and omission of their officials, employees, contractors and agents in failing to properly assess, examine and care for Howard from November 2017 to January 19, 2022.

The claim says a failed diagnosis of the signs and symptoms of Mr. Howard's medical issues will lead to his life being cut short and that Howard would accept $1 million for the conscious pain and suffering and medical negligence.

Richardson County received the tort claim in June, but Richardson County has no ownership of Community Medical Center which is a non-profit corporation.
