Wichita Nursing Home Coronavirus Lawsuits

Over 40 Years of Dedication to Our Clients 

COVID-19 is making a global impact. While currently anyone is susceptible to being infected by the coronavirus and possibly dying, there’s no denying that older adults are at a higher risk of infection due their weaker immune systems and preexisting conditions. Unfortunately, residents of nursing homes have accounted for a staggering proportion of COVID-19-related deaths in the U.S. during the outbreak. In Connecticut, for example, 194 of 2016 nursing homes have had at least one COVID-19 case, and in New Hampshire, 72% of all COVID-19 deaths have been nursing home residents. If you or a loved one was infected by the coronavirus in a nursing home, you deserve to seek justice. To determine if you’re eligible for financial compensation, reach out to our Wichita nursing home lawsuit attorneys. At Hutton & Hutton Law Firm, LLC, we’re committed to standing by your side during these unprecedented times.

We Help When Nursing Homes Fail

U.S. federal law mandates nursing homes across the country to have infection control programs to maintain a safe and sanitary environment for residents and to prevent the development and spread of diseases and infections, including the coronavirus.

According to these federal laws, infection control programs have several requirements, including:

  • Investigating and preventing infections in nursing homes
  • Deciding which procedures must be applied to individual residents
  • Recording infection incidents and corrective actions

There are specific procedures nursing homes must follow in order to prevent the spread of diseases and infections throughout their facility, and nursing homes can be held liable for damages when they fail to adhere to these procedures.

Infection control program procedures include:

  • Requiring staff members to wash hands after direct contact with residents
  • Isolating residents when they need it to prevent the spread of infection
  • Prohibiting employees with diseases from having contact with residents if it will lead to disease transmission

Past failures have shown that nursing homes can neglect procedures if their staff isn’t properly trained, if homes are understaffed and/or overworked, and if some procedures are enforced and others aren’t.

Call our Wichita nursing home lawsuit attorneys if you’ve been infected by COVID-19 at (316) 688-1166. Our team moves swiftly to secure the compensation you need to recover from injury or illness and works on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid until you do.
