LV Files Second Lawsuit Against Mount Carmel

The attorneys at Leeseberg & Valentine just filed its second lawsuit against Mount Carmel, Dr. William Husel, and other medical staff on behalf of the family of Troy Allison. On July 15, 2018, Troy Allison went to the Mount Carmel ER for shortness of breath and an infection in his leg. He was admitted to the ICU and within 3 hours was declared brain-dead.

He was pronounced dead within minutes of receiving the deadly dose of dentanyl. He was 44 years old at the time of his death.
