The challenges we face today are unprecedented. Business is confronted with a worldwide public health crisis that already has tipped the economy into recession on a scale some are comparing to the Great Depression. The world’s top scientists are studying the origins and causes of the unfolding coronavirus pandemic, and how to stop it. In a US election year, pundits are also evaluating and debating the adequacy of the Federal Government’s crisis response. Businesses at every level of the economy are struggling to protect employee health, while continuing essential services and conserving cash.
Understandably, amidst this crisis, today’s focus is on how to stem the infection rate and restart the economy. Over time, more and more attention will turn to assessing the resulting physical and economic injury, whether compensation for such losses is adequate, and how third parties could be held responsible for covering or mitigating such losses. Few commentators have yet reflected on the anticipated wave of litigation that will follow in the wake of this health crisis and its resulting economic devastation, and what can be done to prepare for it.
