Ina Grafton Gage Home Class Action Lawsuit
In Ontario, and across Canada, residents of nursing homes and other long-term care facilities have been disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Analysis released by the Canadian Institute for Health Information in late June showed that over 81 per cent of all fatalities from the virus occurred in long-term care settings, almost double the average of other OECD nations.
The findings came as no surprise to our experienced team of nursing home negligence lawyers. For years, Will Davidson LLP has represented long-term care residents, and the families of long-term care residents, who have experienced negative outcomes as a result of negligent or substandard care. For years, it has been an open secret that Ontario’s long-term care system is underfunded, understaffed, and unprepared to handle a major health emergency. The COVID-19 pandemic has made this one-time secret a provincial crisis.
“We must change the system,” Premier Doug Ford told the media in late May. “This tragedy must serve as a wakeup call to our entire country. … COVID-19 has exposed the deep, deep cracks in the long-term care system.”
Will Davidson LLP’s Class Action Lawyers Can Help
Our team of personal injury lawyers is currently investigating reports of negligence and substandard care at several Ontario nursing homes, including Ina Grafton Gage Home in the Toronto neighbourhood of Scarborough. By early May, there were 21 fatalities at Ina Grafton Gage, and dozens of additional infections among residents and staff. Our fear is that negligence, poor planning, and a failure to follow the province’s COVID-19 guidelines directly contributed to the elevated number of infections at the facility. An Ina Grafton Gage Home class action lawsuit would provide residents and their families the opportunity to seek compensation for the pain and suffering they have experienced.
