The managers and owners of any type of property or building (or even a cruise ship) where Legionnaires Disease has been detected and determined to have occurred, including those responsible for the repair, maintenance, installation, manufacture, construction, engineering, design and/or development of commercial building systems identified as the confirmed source of an outbreak, have faced potential claims against them and legal liability from the victims confirmed to have the disease. Over past years, this has included corporations and persons involved in the maintenance, management, operation and ownership of condominiums, shopping malls, nursing homes, cruise ships, senior housing facilities, hospitals and hotels. In order to make such a claim successfully, you really need a Compensation and Claims for Legionnaires Disease Attorney like those at Carabin Shaw. Give us a call. We can help.

Since a single outbreak can cause a death rate of between 20 percent and 40 percent, and just one source which exposes people can infect at least dozens, or possibly even hundreds of people, the liability exposure potential for any one party can be significant. Reported jury awards and settlements have ranged from between $225,000 and $5.2 million dollars. Such large awards are intended to compensate the survivors of victims who died. They are also intended ensure that victims who survived get fair and full reimbursement for the pain and the suffering which they have endured. Legionnaires Disease suit and claim settlements also include amounts for disability, lost past and future wages medical expenses and any other legally available damages. An award of punitive damages from the defendant awarded to punish past and deter future “gross negligence” also adds to the exposure of potentially liable entities and parties.
