The COVID-19 pandemic has been especially devastating to nursing homes, which have been referred to as “ground zero” for the public health emergency.  Already legal actions are in the works, with the courts addressing new legal theories and defenses with drastically conflicting points of view.  

This program examines the current state of COVID litigation, the unique challenges posed with litigation, emerging issues and what the future may hold in a post-pandemic world.

The Causation Conundrum: Building and Proving (and Defending) a Case 

  • Standard of care & indirect claims during the pandemic
  • Infection control
  • Elements of a lawsuit 
  • Challenges addressing causation
  • Increased risk of harm limitations
  • Proving damages

Juror Attitudes and Perceptions in the Wake of Covid
