spacer image
Attorneys report that very few COVID-19 lawsuits filed against nursing homes have materialized, as the cases are hard to prove. According to plaintiff lawyers and other experts, there is a high bar to proving that a nursing home is at fault for the death of a resident from COVID-19, due to the complex nature of the pandemic. Despite the challenge in proving such cases, wrongful death lawsuits against nursing homes involving COVID-19 continue to be filed.

This week, a lawsuit was filed in Nevada against the maker of a magazine used in the Oregon District mass shooting that happened in Dayton, Ohio. The lawsuit accuses Kyung Chang Industry USA Inc (KCI) of recklessly marketing and selling the 100-round drum, which the lawsuit calls "instruments of mass slaughter." According to an attorney for the plaintiffs, "No civilian needs a 100-round magazine - it’s only useful for the military or mass shootings." During the shooting two years ago, a gunman killed nine people and injured 17 others in a matter of 30 seconds.
