Texas businesses watched the 2021 Texas legislative session closely for the potential pandemic liability relief provided in Senate Bill 6 (SB 6), or the Pandemic Liability Protection Act. With the passage of SB 6, Jackson Walker litigation partner Brad Nitschke discusses the three primary effects of the bill in the areas of pandemic liability exposure, the protections of healthcare providers during a pandemic, and the additional products liability protections for manufacturers and distributors during a pandemic emergency. There are a few caveats to note about the liability test, but the bill overall will make suing Texas businesses for pandemic-related injury or death claims more difficult.
