Lawsuits involving seniors homes, airlines, universities and ticket providers affected by COVID-19 could tie up Canadian courts for years, says a litigation lawyer.
Michael Smith, a partner at the Bennett Jones law firm in Toronto, says it has been tracking all proposed class-action claims related to the pandemic.
From the end of March to June 1, the firm recorded 19 such lawsuits across Canada, including eight against long-term care facilities.
“What you find with COVID is the breadth of the sectors it touches,” Smith said in an interview.
“You’re seeing many industry sectors affected simultaneously. We will have COVID-related cases in the courts for many years.”
