Legal Answers
5 Questions Answered

Q. Can I sue my place of business if I contract covid?
A: These are new questions facing the court, but depending upon your injuries or specific facts, one of two scenarios is likely. Either, (1) you can file a suit for something like negligence, personal injury, or wrongful death against the employer, or (2) you can file a workers' compensation claim. The elements for negligence may slightly differ depending on where you are, but typically in order to establish a cause of action for a negligent conduct, a plaintiff must establish that (1) the defendant owes him or her a duty; (2) there was a breach of that duty; (3) there is a causal connection between the defendant’s conduct and the harm incurred to the plaintiff; and (4) damages to the plaintiff. Additionally, you may have the grounds for some form of personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against an employer if: through intentional actions – like the failure to provide PPE or to follow health and safety mandates – the employer created a work environment that caused the employee to become ill, and significant injury, such as severe and long-term complications or death, resulted. You might want to reach out and contact an attorney.
