Troy COVID-19 Nursing Home & Assisted Living Exposure Attorneys
The coronavirus has put nursing homes and assisted living facilities under heavy pressure to keep caring for vulnerable elders while minimizing their exposure to the virus. While this is a difficult responsibility, it is important to remember that it is still a responsibility – and one that needs to be taken seriously. If a nursing home or another type of group housing unit does not take reasonable steps to limit coronavirus exposure within its walls, and you or a loved one became ill, then it may be subject to civil claims that will result in compensation for the wrongdoing.

If they contracted the coronavirus due to neglectful safety procedures at their facility, then we want to know about it. Using our extensive legal experience handling complex, sensitive cases, we can help prove liability and calculate the damages owed to you.

Preventative Steps That Should Be Taken
If your loved one has contracted the coronavirus while staying in a nursing home or assisted living facility, then there might be grounds for a claim, but it is not guaranteed. Simply being diagnosed with COVID-19 is not enough to demand compensation from the facility. A successful claim should also integrate evidence that the nursing home or assisted living did not take reasonable steps to protect your elderly loved one from the virus’s spread.
