Impact of Coronavirus on Nursing Home Patients

We have been contacted by numerous families regarding the legal implications when a loved one acquires Coronavirus during an admission to a skilled nursing facility. At this time, we are reviewing these matters on a case-by-case basis to determine liability on the part of the facility.

While many developments in this pandemic continue to develop, we now understand how the COVID-19 virus is transmitted and safety measures nursing homes can take to drastically reduce the risk of transmission. Knowing this, when facilities fail to implement these safeguards, they may open themselves to liability for damages when patients and staff become ill or even die.

While we continue to watch as this situation unfolds, we welcome you to contact us to discuss your legal rights and options.

We wish you and your family health and security during this time.

Jonathan did a great job helping my family navigate through a lengthy lawsuit involving my grandmother's death in a nursing home. Through every step of the case, Jonathan kept my family informed of the progression of the case. Although our case eventually settled at a mediation, I really was impressed at how well prepared Jonathan was to take the case to trial. Lisa

After I read Jonathan’s Nursing Home Blog, I decided to hire him to look into my wife’s treatment at a local nursing home. Jonathan did a great job explaining the process and the laws that apply to nursing homes. I immediately felt at ease and was glad to have him on my side. Though the lawsuit process was at times frustrating, Jonathan reassured me, particularly at my deposition. I really felt like Jonathan cared about my wife’s best interests, and I think that came across to the lawyers for the nursing home. Eric
