10 Feb Family Sues Private Medical Company and Arapahoe County for Death of Inmate
Holland, Holland Edwards & Grossman, along with co counsel, recently filed suit against Correct Care Solutions, LLC, Arapahoe County and related Defendants for the death of Jeffrey Lillis.
Mr. Lillis was allowed to die on the floor of Arapahoe County Jail from bacterial pneumonia — a treatable condition. Mr. Lillis was known to be coughing up blood and to need medical help but instead he was abandoned during this medical crisis. Jail and medical staff watched Mr. Lillis on video on the floor of his cell while he died.
The lawsuit brings claims for unconstitutional medical care as well as wrongful death on behalf of Mr. Lillis’ estate and his family.
