Statement from Hughgill family attorney Timothy Kenlan of Berman & Simmons

The family of Mary Hughgill appreciates the outpouring of support from friends and family since she passed away on September 3, 2020 due to complications of COVID-19. Mary contracted the virus while a resident at the Maplecrest nursing home in Madison, Maine. Initial indications point to this infection being caused by the early August wedding held at the Big Moose Inn in Millinocket

Berman & Simmons attorney Timothy Kenlan is representing Mrs. Hughgill’s family and is in the process of investigating claims against the Big Moose Inn because of its failure to follow health and safety laws and guidelines. This failure led to the spread of the virus, the illness and death of multiple Maine residents, and it continues to place the public at risk.

Attorney Kenlan is also investigating new reports that Maplecrest and its staff violated the law and health and safety rules, further contributing to the  spread of the virus and illness and death of several residents.

The Hughgill family continues to grieve and have asked that all media inquiries be directed to attorney Kenlan of Berman & Simmons.
