As we plunge further into the global pandemic caused by this Coronavirus, we are now seeing the first of what will likely be a wave of Coronavirus-related lawsuits. The lawsuits will involve wrongful termination, wrongful death, and other legal claims.

In late March 2020, Walmart employee Wando Evans tragically passed away due to Coronavirus. His family has filed a lawsuit and alleges that Walmart did not have the necessary safety precautions in place to keep Mr. Evans and other employees safe from Coronavirus.
