Businesses Fear Onslaught Of COVID-19 Lawsuits As Nation Reopens

One of the biggest fears businesses have right now is that they will be the target of lawsuits related to COVID-19, Harold Kim, president of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Institute for Legal Reform, told Chamber Business News.

“I’ve been doing legal reform for nearly 20 years now and I have never seen a groundswell of concern about the liabilities that are going to emerge out of the coronavirus outbreak,” said Kim. “It doesn’t really matter if you are a Fortune 500 business or a coffee shop in downtown Phoenix. These are real issues and the fear and the concern and the cloud of liability is something that policymakers in Washington — but also throughout the country —  are taking a really close look at because it’s a huge, huge issue as the country starts to reopen and restarts the economy moving forward.”
