Of all the horrors that COVID-19 brought to families in the Bronx, none may be worse than the loss of a parent, grandparent, aunt, uncle or sibling who was a resident of a nursing home. Families trusted these institutions to care for their relatives, and these institutions failed. Now, your family needs to turn to the Bronx Law Firm of Feiner & Lavy to help you finally collect the compensation your family deserves for the loss of a loved one.
The wrongful death of your relative in a nursing home due to COVID-19 is personal to you, and it’s an outrage to us. As Bronx-based Nursing Home Abuse Lawyers who have turned our attention to COVID nursing home deaths, we have watched the evolution of the Justice for Nursing Home Victims Act and the $4 billion victims’ compensation fund to help families who have suffered a tragedy.
Many of these nursing home deaths were caused due to a combination of negligence by nursing home management and damaging decrees from Albany. The failure of nursing home management and government policy resulted in an estimated 15,000 needless and senseless deaths in New York due to COVID-19. As Bronx Nursing Home COVID Death and Abuse Lawyers, we are carefully monitoring the evolution of this Act and know that it can really help many people who are suffering in the aftermath of the wrongful death of a loved one from COVID.
We know that money cannot bring back the loved one you lost to COVID-19, but appropriate and fair compensation will benefit you, help you find closure, move on with your life and enable your family to live up to the legacy of the departed.
In addition to wrongful deaths, the shortage of staff and at times abusive behavior toward elderly residents of nursing homes resulted in unnecessary injuries that could indicate negligence on the part of the nursing home operator. Some common injuries that a loved one may have suffered include:
- Injuries from slip-and-fall accidents
- Severe weight loss that could indicate malnutrition
- Bedsores that could result from being left unattended in bed for long periods of time
- Health issues resulting from mediation errors such as the wrong dosage or incorrect medication being given to a nursing home resident
