Dylan Braverman and Brian Andrews Obtain Dismissal of COVID-19 Wrongful Death Action in the Supreme Court, Richmond County

By October 13, 2023No Comments

Partners Dylan Braverman and Brian Andrews obtained dismissal of all claims brought against the firm’s Staten Island nursing home client. The nursing home was among the hardest hit in the darkest days of the COVID-19 surge in New York City. Plaintiff claimed that the nursing home’s infection control failures allowed the patient to be exposed to COVID-19, and that the nursing home improperly treated the COVID-19 patient once he came into contact with the virus. The COVID-19 team moved to dismiss pre-answer based on the COVID-19 immunities afforded to healthcare providers. After oral argument, the court dismissed all claims.
