CoronaVirus Legal Issues

Bohren Law is advising clients on all aspects of the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic. As we enter this unprecedented time, many novel legal issues will arise, while established legal claims still stand. Many of the legal issues will involve insurance, healthcare, employment, and negligent exposure to the Coronavirus. If you have an issue related to the COVID-19/Coronavirus pandemic, please contact us immediately for a full case evaluation. Some of the legal issues arising out of the pandemic are as follows:
  • Social Distancing Violations

    The Coronavirus is an extremely dangerous and deadly virus. The most dangerous thing about it is the unknowns – we don’t know exactly what it is and what it can do, especially long term. That is why it is so important to socially distance from one another. As painful and inconvenient as that can be, our health and safety as a nation is depending on us following these social distancing guidelines. By keeping physical distance between ourselves during this tumultuous time, we can help “flatten the curve,” save lives, and get back to our “normal” lives sooner rather than later – and with as many lives as possible.

    It’s also important to consistently wash our hands and keep our hands away from our faces and mouths. If you do get the coronavirus, this is even more important in suppressing the spread. By social distancing, we can promote safety and prevention of the spread. By avoiding “clusters,” we can likewise prevent and suppress mass spread of this deadly virus.

    When businesses and organizations ignore the anti-cluster orders, they are risking not only the lives of the persons in the clusters, but all of the persons the clustered people will come into contact with. Many of these businesses such as cruise lines and nursing homes are packed with the people who are most at risk – our elderly population. These places are especially hot beds for the virus spread because of their close and intimate proximities. If a business chooses to actively ignore the anti-cluster warnings, and places people in danger despite knowing it’s unsafe to do so, they are putting profits before people. If any business or organization violates these social distancing guidelines, and causes harm, we plan on holding them accountable for their negligence.

  • Employment Rights

    The Coronavirus pandemic has hit businesses harder than anything we’ve seen before. The lifeblood of any business is its employees; without employees, there is no business to operate. The Coronavirus pandemic has revealed a new frontier in employee rights, but many of the same established principles apply.

    If an employee contracts the Coronavirus on the job, they may qualify for a disability claim under the American Disabilities Act (ADA). With this protection, an employee is barred from firing an employee or else may face harsh consequences. Additionally, there are other benefits to being classified as an ADA employee such as requiring the employer to provide reasonable work accommodations (working from home) and qualifying for paid leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA). Employees deserve to be treated with dignity and respect at all times, but especially when they are putting their own health and lives on the line to work. We plan on holding employers accountable for the treatment of their employees during this pandemic.

We have all of the capabilities of operating in a virtual world: client consultations are done over the phone, or via Zoom video chat; all of our documents are sent to clients for review and signature by electronic document signing; our clients have access to their files through shared computer files; all of our court filing and retrieval are also executed online. We even conduct depositions and court hearings through Zoom video chat. This is a strategic advantage as many of our clients live across the nation. Without the hassle and expense of travel, we can push cases to settlement without having our clients leave their own living room. We remain open and committed to ensure our clients get the justice they deserve through this pandemic and beyond. Please follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest news.
