Immunity From Suit

by | Mar 25, 2020 | Firm News

Governor Cuomo has signed an executive order which grants immunity to almost all health care professionals who are providing medical care during the current COVID-19 crises.  The Executive Order is broad.  It appears to offer immunity from suit even in cases where the medical treatment is for something other than COVID-19.  If the treatment is in support of the crises the treating medical professional will likely assert an immunity defense.
