  • Trial Lawyers Are Already Trying To Cash In On Coronavirus
April 06, 2020

Trial lawyers have already sued cruise ship operators, soap manufacturers and insurance companies, but COVID-19 will give them plenty more opportunities to make money, according to a report in Legal Newsline. A handful of law firms have formed “Coronavirus Task Forces” to bring lawsuits over securities fraud, false claims, negligence and foreclosures, among other things.

Law firms that specialize in nursing home litigation are all over the internet in search of clients whose “loved one sustained a serious infectious disease” due to the novel coronavirus. Grocery stores and pharmacies are also likely targets for coronavirus lawsuits, simply because they have insurance and plaintiff lawyers have plenty of experience suing them over slip-and-falls and other injuries.
