While the news that the spread of COVID-19 is slowing down in Ontario is hopeful, it doesn’t change the fact that our elderly population has been disproportionately affected. Canadian news outlets estimate that over 75% of Ontario’s COVID-19 related deaths have been within the long-term care population. This devastating death-toll has prompted a public inquiry into the province’s long-term care system, which is set to begin in September.

Gosai Law has represented families of elderly citizens who have suffered improper care, neglect, and/or death within a long-term care facility. Due to recent events, we have now been retained to represent family members who have lost their loved ones to COVID-19 at these same facilities. Gosai Law is bringing individual claims against long-term care homes that have failed to provide adequate care, social distancing measures, and/or responsive measures to prevent the outbreak of COVID-19. This includes both residents of the home that have been affected, as well as facilities’ staff.

If you believe that a long-term care facility may have been negligent in providing adequate care for your loved ones in the fight against COVID-19, we are here to help. Nital S. Gosai is providing free, video-conference consultations to families and individuals who have been affected by the COVID-19 crises. While our physical office location is currently closed, we continue to advocate for you remotely. Please reach out to us at (905) 595-2225 or info@gosailaw.com for more information.
