The recent coverage by NBC News of the Ebola case at a Dallas hospital included a quote from leading Dallas trial attorney Charla Aldous, the founder of the Aldous Law Firm. Nurses who caught the disease at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital would most likely have a difficult time obtaining compensation should they pursue legal recourse against the hospital. The same is true for the family of Thomas Eric Duncan, a man from Liberia who died at the hospital with Ebola.
Several leading experts and attorneys in Dallas were interviewed for the story. The interviewer contacted Attorney Aldous, who gave her opinion that the nurses and the Duncan family members would face a high bar in obtaining compensation. She also stated that our team at the Aldous Law Firm is currently investigating potential issues involved in the case.
