COVID-19 Nursing Home Lawsuits
Information about Filing COVID-19 Nursing Home Lawsuits for Death Claims
However, sometimes even the best planning and intentions go awry. We are now learning that many nursing homes were ill-prepared to respond to an infectious disease like COVID-19, failing to put a reliable emergency plan in place. News reports depict chaos and a breakdown of ordinary containment practices, with staff failing to wear basic protective equipment, residents left to suffer unattended, and the failure to summon help in time to make a difference. If you have lost a loved one as a result of a nursing home coronavirus outbreak, our team is here to support you and help you get the justice your parents deserve.
If you lost a parent or another loved one to COVID-19 in a nursing home, you may have grounds to file a coronavirus nursing home lawsuit against the care facility. Filing a lawsuit allows you to seek compensation for medical expenses, suffering, and loss resulting from nursing home negligence. Filing a COVID-19 nursing home lawsuit will bring your family the compensation you deserve and gives you an avenue to seek justice on behalf of your loved one.
Negligence Results in Nursing Home COVID-19 Death
While no one could have imagined COVID-19 specifically, every facility should have emergency procedures for contagious disease in place. At the first sign that residents were rapidly becoming infected with severe respiratory problems, the facility should have enacted its emergency protocol.
Emergency plans include increased measures to isolate infected patients, testing of care providers, increased cleaning, and other standard measures for preventing the spread of disease. Failure to follow emergency procedures represents a failure on the part of the facility’s leadership, which can often be traced back to inadequate staff training, poor compensation, or other cost-cutting measures that impact the effectiveness of the facility and its staff.
If you have lost a loved one as a result of coronavirus in a nursing home, filing a COVID-19 nursing home lawsuit is the only way to achieve the justice they deserve.
