How to Prepare for Potential COVID-19 Claims

Fowler Hirtzel McNulty and Spaulding have been closely monitoring the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the various orders and guidance issued by our local, state and federal government.

In accordance with the “stay-at-home” order, many businesses are closed, however, the life sustaining businesses remain open. We anticipate that there may be employees or consumers who will claim that they were exposed to and contracted COVID-19 due to improper or inadequate safety and cleaning protocols. There could also be exposure-related claims against a non-essential business that did not close when recommended to do so, or did not enact policies and procedures to enforce social distancing guidelines.

Jacqueline E. Campbell, Esquire and Zoe A. Otway from FHMS’s Causalty Department discusses the potential claims of COVID-19 exposure, how to prepare, and efforts to obtain immunity in this article. Please contact Fhmslaw@fhmslaw.com for a copy or for the latest updates.
