JSH partner Michael Ludwig authored the Arizona chapter of USLAW NETWORK’s COVID-19 General Liability Quick Guide Compendium of Law. This multi-state resource addresses general liability considerations in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. The Quick Guide includes information on statute of limitations, negligence, standard of care, causation, premises liability, violation of statute/executive orders as evidence of negligence, contributory negligence, assumption of the risk, statutory cap on non-economic damages, death cases, and punitive damages, plus best practices for avoiding/reducing future liability for COVID-19 claims.

Written by USLAW NETWORK member attorneys, the 34-state compendium takes advantage of local knowledge and experience in each of the jurisdictions in which USLAW firms practice.
