This pandemic has illuminated the shortfalls within our nursing homes that have been going on for years. When our elderly are infected, they tend to experience the symptoms on a larger scale than the rest of our population. The problems are compounded by the fact that management has failed to properly protect the staff with PPE equipment or develop in-house processes which mitigate against risks. Media reports have shown many workers walking out on the job as they have felt that their health is at risk. These nursing homes have had ample warning to prepare for the effects of this pandemic and, as such, ought to have been aware of the many issues that could potentially arise as a result.
If a loved one has contracted COVID-19 as a result of being a resident of a nursing home facility, you may be able to secure compensation.

A class action is a lawsuit which provides a method for a large group of people with common claims to come together to advance one claim on behalf of the group. Class actions are more efficient and cost-effective and allow for groups of people with common claims to gain access to the legal system and seek justice on their behalves.
Class actions are typically handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that the class counsel are only paid if the class action is successful at trial or settled. In the event that it is successful, class counsel fees may be paid by the Defendants owners and operators or out of either the settlement or judgment proceeds, as approved by the court.
