Troy Coronavirus Attorneys
The coronavirus pandemic has made life difficult for virtually everyone in the country, but matters get even worse when professional negligence and wrongdoing arise. From elders staying in nursing homes to prisoners behind bars, people from all walks of life are facing increased hardships and coronavirus dangers due to the mistakes or intentional misconduct of various parties. Even some people who simply want to be tested for COVID-19 or have the opportunity to a safe environment in shared quarters are shocked to find that their civil rights may have been violated.
At Oliver Law Group P.C., we believe that standing together is the only way we can be stronger by the time the pandemic ends. If we want to be united, then we have to address negligence and wrongdoing directly and through legal channels. Our attorneys in Southeast Michigan are proudly bringing various coronavirus claims and lawsuits on behalf of people just like you who need justice now more than ever.
We Are Currently Accepting the Following Types of Claims:
- Coronavirus deaths in assisted living facilities: Across the country, nursing homes, assisted care facilities, and group housing units are being accused of taking inefficient safety measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus within their walls.
- Coronavirus dangers and issues in prisons: Coronavirus outbreaks in prisons have unreasonably put prisoners at risk of contracting the disease. Some have demanded early release to maintain social distancing, only to be denied due to discriminatory reasons.
- Denial of business interruption insurance: Companies big and small are fighting with insurance companies to collect business interruption insurance payments as promised and paid for through their policies.
- Civil rights violations caused by selective COVID-19 testing: Widespread COVID-19 testing is necessary to bring the virus’s spread under control, but many are struggling to get access to a test due to discrimination that constitutes a civil rights violation.
- Federal CARES Act benefits filings: You might be able to get various benefits through the CARES Act, but actually obtaining those benefits can be harder than it seems due to complications in the process.
- Irresponsible business practices leading to COVID-19 infection: In a desperate attempt to remain operational, some companies have wrongfully claimed their business is “essential” and ignored stay-at-home orders. Many businesses that are actually essential have forced their employees into unsafe working conditions. Because of this, workers are at high risk and many have become ill.
