A Coronavirus expert witness testifies about Infectious Disease, Epidemiology, Critical Care, and other aspects of Coronavirus (COVID-19) infection. Novel Coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) already affects the lives of billions of people, yet it didn’t even exist as a designated entity until the World Health Organization (WHO) named it “COVID-19” on February 11, 2020. COVID-19 has since claimed a rapidly escalating number of lives, decimated economies, and changed the way of life for nearly everyone on the planet. It is also a Black Swan event that has affected the legal system in unimaginable ways from closing the US Supreme Court to cancelling every trial across the nation. COVID-19 is also making its first appearance in civil litigation where it will test novel legal theories and require the strategic insight of expert witnesses from myriad fields and disciplines. A Coronavirus expert witness, or perhaps Coronavirus expert witnesses from a range of disciplines, is required for complex litigation in multiple sectors:
It took only a few months for the terms “social distancing” and “N95 mask” to become commonplace, and the pace of Coronavirus litigation will likely parallel the trajectory of this unprecedented global crisis. Attorneys from both sides of the bar will advance their clients’ interests by proactively developing strategies and resources to scrutinize these complex cases.
