Senseless death at transitional home

Location: Fulton County, Georgia
Plaintiff: Confidential
Defendants:  Confidential
Amount: Confidential settlement
Alleged Injuries: Wrongful death due to hyperthermia caused by a dysfunctional air conditioning system


A 55-year-old man became a resident of a transitional home located in the metropolitan area of Atlanta, GA. In June of 2015, he was found deceased in his attic room because of an abnormal heart rhythm brought about by prolonged exposure to a hot indoor environment.

The evidence revealed the extreme temperature of the room was caused by a dysfunctional air conditioning system, which the Defendant knew to be in disrepair prior to the plaintiff’s death. Despite possessing knowledge of the deficient air conditioning system, the Defendant failed to repair the air conditioning in a timely manner and failed to warn the plaintiff about the dangers of remaining on the premises.
