Why should I file a COVID-19 lawsuit against the nursing home?
Any facility that takes others’ lives into their hands, from a nursing home to a hospital, has a responsibility to plan for disaster. Having an emergency plan in place is only the first step; carrying the plan out effectively is the obligation of the business’ management. When there is a failure to implement an emergency plan, the lives of the facility’s dependents are imperiled. The companies that own and manage these facilities simply must be held accountable. It is a sad fact that it takes the threat of litigation to motivate business owners to make needed changes. Filing a COVID-19 nursing home lawsuit holds the company accountable for its failure to ensure a safe and quality experience--and is the only means to obtain compensation for suffering and loss.
Are coronavirus nursing home lawsuits just class action lawsuits where the plaintiff receives very little money?
No, coronavirus nursing home lawsuits are not class action lawsuits. When the facility’s failure to follow emergency protocol results in the death of residents as with the COVID-19 outbreak, nursing home lawsuits may result in significant compensation for the family.
Are there time limits for filing a nursing home lawsuit for coronavirus death?
Most states do have time limits that will apply to coronavirus nursing home death lawsuits; however, the majority of all persons seeking to file a claim will fall within those time limits if they contact an attorney in the near future. For specific time limits for your claim, please fill out the form at right and one of our attorneys will contact you promptly.
