In an article published on May 27, 2020 by the Daily Business Review, Orlando attorney Michael J. Bittman discusses how COVID-19 has led to the filing of numerous lawsuits and how the Florida Courts will address them. Further, he discusses the health risks and legal liabilities businesses should consider as they begin to reopen.
“In cases where plaintiffs successfully establish the other elements for negligent transmission, juries can award economic and noneconomic damages,” writes Bittman. “Economic damages are financial losses from the defendant’s negligence: medical bills, lost wages, etc. Noneconomic damages are more difficult to measure and can be subjective: pain and suffering, emotional distress, etc.”
