Many nursing homes have unfortunately neglected their residents, even before the coronavirus pandemic. Although there are laws that have been put into place to protect the rights of the elderly against abuse, it still happens across Texas. Neglect can include failure to provide adequate medical attention, medication, or failure to respond to a medical emergency in a timely manner, if at all.
Care facilities know that they are responsible for many high-risk individuals, but were severely underprepared in the face of the coronavirus pandemic. Nursing home administrators should have had crisis plans in the event of widespread illness, but unfortunately many of them did not implement or adhere to their plan. If you have lost a loved one due to negligent nursing home coronavirus practices, we can help you find closure and justice for your family.
Here are steps that can help you figure out if negligence played a role in you or your loved one’s contraction of coronavirus:
- First, contact our attorneys so we can go over your legal options and answer any questions you have.
- We will then conduct an investigation of the nursing home in question. We will ask questions about how you or your loved one contracted the virus, what safety measures did the care facility put into place, and who in particular can be held responsible for negligence?
- Once we have determined who is negligent, we will look into all of the various factors that will go into the damages you may be able to claim. We will be sure to prevent any future harm by holding the guilty parties accountable.
