Have You Lost a Loved One to the COVID-19 Coronavirus?
The COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic has devastated the United States. But even more devastating is the unexpected and untimely death of a loved one to the coronavirus—especially since it did not have to happen.
After losing a loved one because of the actions of another, seeking compensation is often the furthest thing from your mind. But seeking compensation for a wrongful death is a vital action for many families. It is often crucial for surviving family members to secure compensation to be able to grieve without worrying about being ruined financially.
One potential source of compensation is the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program (CICP) administered by the federal government. The CICP compensates surviving family members whose loved one perished as the result of certain medical treatments known as “covered countermeasures.” Several Covid-19 medical treatments are “covered countermeasures” under the Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program. CICP benefits include a death benefit of $365,670 (increasing to $370,376 for deaths after October 1, 2020), up to $50,000 in unreimbursed lost wages, and reimbursement of out-of-pocket medical expenses.
The good news is that a Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program claim does not require you to file a lawsuit, nor is it a claim against your medical providers. But time is of the essence. A CICP claim must be filed within one year after a covered countermeasure was administered to your deceased loved one or the claim is forever waived. Analyzing medical records, preparing an effective a CICP benefits claim, and securing its approval after a rigorous review process requires the assistance of lawyers adept in presenting compelling scientific and medical evidence. We are those lawyers.
The Countermeasures Injury Compensation Program, however, is not the only possible source of compensation. Other potential targets include the various governments responsible for unleashing this needless tragedy on the United States. That said, we do not sue hospitals, doctors, or nursing homes.
