Miami Coronavirus Injury and Wrongful Death Lawyers
Florida nursing homes and assisted living facilities are already the subject of several lawsuits and investigations over their handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Many failed to properly monitor the potential for infection, or to control infection in their facilities. As a result of this and staff not being properly monitored, many vulnerable residents of these assisted living facilities in Miami and throughout the state of Florida contracted coronavirus through no fault of their own.
For many families, they fear that their loved one may contract the coronavirus and ultimately die or have to be placed on a ventilator or undergo other surgeries. Many of these elderly adults are already vulnerable with other underlying medical conditions. As soon as the assisted living facilities became aware of the risk for infection of the residents of their facilities, they should have taken immediate precautions to protect their vulnerable residence and patience.
Those facilities who failed to protect their residents may be held negligent for any injury or wrongful death as a result of a resident or patient contracting coronavirus at their facility.
Some nursing homes and ALFs are already trying to seek help from the state of Florida to become immune from any liability. Hopefully, this will not become a law and victims can see their day in court. Recently, a daughter filed a lawsuit against Life Care Centers of America and many more are likely to follow.
Atria Willow Wood Coronavirus Cases
Several news reports found that Fort Lauderdale assisted living facility, Atria Willow Wood, has had a significant number of residents test positive for COVID-19. Several residents have already died from the virus with several others having tested positive. ALFs generally have an obligation under the law to keep their residents safe. It is likely that others outside of the facility may not have been properly screened and were allowed access with residents, despite warnings from the CDC and other government agencies.
