(Worthy News) – The state of New Jersey has agreed to pay close to $53 million to the families of the 119 residents who died after contracting COVID-19 at the beginning of the pandemic at the Menlo Park Veterans Memorial Home, in Edison, and a second state-run veterans home in Paramus.
The families had been preparing to file lawsuits against the state accusing it of gross negligence. The out-of-court settlement, the first of its kind, is expected to total roughly $445,000 per family.
A New Jersey official said the state government hopes the settlement “will hopefully allow them (the families) to move forward without years of protracted and uncertain litigation.” [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
