Partner Talks to the Houston Chronicle About COVID-Related Lawsuits in Texas


In an interview with the Houston Chronicle, Joe Gagnon discusses recent efforts to shield Texas businesses from COVID-19 lawsuits with a push for legislation that would limit coronavirus-related litigation. Joe describes the hurdles that exist in pursuing a COVID-related lawsuit, and he explains that “to prevail under current laws, plaintiffs must prove not only that the business failed to take adequate precautions, but also that the careless conduct was the actual source of infection or injury.” In addition to causation, Joe reminds readers that another hurdle to COVID-related lawsuits is that they are expensive with the risk of being “crippling for large businesses and mom-and-pop shops alike.”
