COVID-19 Heroes Deserve our Protection
Pennsylvania’s health care providers and businesses large and small are incurring risk to provide life-saving care, equipment, and goods to get us all through the COVID-19 public health crisis. They deserve our gratitude and support. They also deserve our protection.
Front-line heroes aren’t only at risk for contracting the COVID-19 virus. They also face the unprecedented threat of liability from “Billboard Lawyers” looking to take advantage of the crisis. While businesses and health care providers are rising to the challenge of defeating this virus, trial lawyers are looking to cash in!
The Plaintiffs’ bar is already seeking clients interested in pursuing product liability and other civil and criminal liability claims related to coronavirus treatment and care. Even as businesses try to help individuals survive the COVID-19 pandemic, they may unwittingly expose themselves to crippling lawsuits.
Pennsylvania’s Legislature Must Act Now!
Pennsylvania needs a robust immunity statute to protect our COVID-19 heroes. Legislation must pass to provide broad immunity protections for health care practitioners and providers, PPE/health equipment, manufacturers and distributors.
Liability protections create incentives for private and nonprofit entities to join with government agencies to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies. Many states are enacting laws to protect COVID-19 heroes from lawsuits, but Pennsylvania is a standstill.

Members of the Pennsylvania House and Senate need to hear from you. Urge them to pass legislation to provide our COVID-19 heroes protections from greedy lawyer lawsuits.
