COVID-19: Elder Care Concerns During The Pandemic

Contributed by Tony Lafazanis – Personal Injury Lawyer. As we progress through the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the key messages has been that the elderly and those with underlying health conditions are at the most risk. Our seniors in Ontario nursing homes and extended care facilities have been ravaged by this virus.  With a primary focus on these facilities and the most recent Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) report released on five long-term care facilities in the Toronto area, negligent care and harmful conduct has been highlighted as critical issues found throughout.

 
Victims of negligence or intentionally harmful conduct by nursing homes can file a claim for compensation against those responsible, for the suffering endured.  The province of Ontario has launched an investigation that could lead to criminal charges for the five homes evaluated in the CAF report.  Multiple class action lawsuits have been filed against some of these facilities highlighted in the CAF report. As an individual, you can also file a claim on behalf of a family member who has experienced negligent or harmful conduct.

 
What do I do if my loved one has been a victim of elder abuse?

 
An experienced personal injury lawyer can investigate the matter and advocate on behalf of the injured in order that they may receive the compensation they are entitled to.

 
It is important that the evidence of negligence be strong if a claim is to be made. Clear evidence of negligence improves the chance of receiving compensation.
