About the Mass Tort and Compensation

Details of the Good Samaritan Society

The plaintiffs include residents and family members of residents. They claim the Edmonton-based Good Samaritan Society senior care home was negligent in its response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Specifically, the plaintiffs say Good Samaritan Society administrators failed to properly care for residents, leading to the unnecessary spread of the disease. Further, the home was negligent in the care of residents who contracted Covid-19 and died as a result.

If a loved one has been a victim of insufficient care, elder abuse or contracted the virus as a result of being a resident at the Southgate Care Centre, you may be able to secure compensation for the abuse.

Frequently Asked Questions


A mass tort does not have one representative plaintiff, rather multiple lawsuits that are settled on an individual basis.  A mass tort allows the individual to have complete control over their own case and can decide their own settlement.  The common denominator is that the defendant is usually the same in all mass torts.

Mass torts are typically handled on a contingency fee basis. This means that counsel handling the lawsuits are only paid if the lawsuits are successful at trial or settled. In the event that they are successful, 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.
