Asked by user in Virginia.
My husband had been in the hospital since October 13, 2020. He was supposed to come home on January 9th. On January 8th, they called me and said he had tested positive for COVID-19. He died on October 18th. He had been to the hospital twice in the week before he died. While he was in hospital, the doctor gave him two medications that had a major interaction. I have seen nurses and patients walking around without masks. I have also seen and experienced them opening the windows during visits. Do I have a case ? If so, who should I contact?
I am so sorry for your loss.
There have been a number of COVID-19-related medical malpractice cases filed throughout the country. Without more information, it’s impossible for me to know whether you might have a valid claim.
I would recommend meeting with an attorney immediately. You can find one near you here. Fortunately, initial consultations are almost always free. The attorney will be able to discuss your specific situation and tell you whether you have a case worth pursuing.
I wish you the best of luck.
