Coronavirus Lawsuits

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has had profound effects on virtually every aspect of society. Tragically, the virus has claimed tens of thousands of lives, and hospitalized many more. Millions have lost their jobs, while others have been asked to work in unsafe conditions. Various businesses have had to shut their doors – perhaps for good. Sadly, some have endured discrimination and threats because of where they’re from. 

The list of hardships goes on.

Amid all of this change, it’s understandable that you might be uncertain about your rights. Concerns that rarely before warranted consideration are now on the minds of many. For instance, what responsibilities do nursing homes have to keep our elderly loved ones safe during a pandemic?

Here’s what you need to know about coronavirus lawsuits – and how Morgan & Morgan may be able to help in this trying time.

Business Interruption

As a business owner, you likely have business interruption coverage included in your commercial insurance policy. This coverage is intended to replace lost income and cover various expenses in the event of a disaster. Therefore, if your business suffered losses due to COVID-19, you may have a claim.

The insurance company is unlikely to make things easy. They might cite certain policy language or take any number of steps to deny your claim. Whether or not you think they’re right to do so, give our attorneys a call. We’re happy to review your policy at no cost.

Wrongful Termination

Although most employers have navigated the coronavirus outbreak with the well-being of their workers in mind, others have instead responded by using this crisis to get rid of employees for unfair and unethical reasons. You may have grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit if you were fired for:

  • Bringing up health or safety concerns to your employer
  • Taking medical leave afforded under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)
  • Obeying a shelter-in-place order rather than going into work

Contact a Morgan & Morgan labor and employment attorney if you suspect you’ve been wrongfully dismissed.

Workplace Discrimination

False assumptions and biases can foster a hostile work environment. If an employer or coworker discriminated against you during the COVID-19 pandemic, we may be able to help. Examples of workplace discrimination include:

  • Firing an employee on the basis of national origin
  • Cutting a worker’s hours because of their age
  • Excluding applicants of a specific ethnicity in a job posting

Workers’ Compensation

Healthcare workers, bus drivers, police, and other front-line workers have displayed tremendous bravery during the coronavirus crisis. Sadly, many of these individuals have gotten sick, leading to missed work, medical bills, and other damages. 

If you or someone you love suffered physical, financial, or emotional hardship after contracting the novel coronavirus at work, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. If the insurance company has denied, delayed, or undervalued your claim, our attorneys may be able to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Nursing Home Neglect

Nursing homes play an essential role in keeping our loved ones safe. These facilities must take every precaution to protect their residents and front-line employees from being exposed to COVID-19. If you suspect a nursing home neglected the well-being of someone you love, contact our nursing home attorneys.

Funeral Home Negligence

Some funeral homes have been unable to manage the influx of bodies during the COVID-19 outbreak, and have thus struggled to handle them appropriately. Although it’s a difficult time for these businesses, that doesn’t excuse negligence or the abuse of a loved one’s remains. Cases of neglect during this crisis may include:

  • Mistreatment of a corpse, such as storing the body in an unrefrigerated truck
  • Mishandling, losing, or dropping the body
  • Leaving the body unattended for a long time
  • Delivering the deceased to the wrong burial plot
  • Piling bodies on top of one another

If you lost a loved one during the coronavirus outbreak and the funeral home failed to treat them in a dignified manner, contact our funeral home negligence attorneys.

Jerri
Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
