COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions

Posted on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 at 3:38 pm    

Kirby Farris & Jessica Zorn answer your legal questions about how COVID-19 impacts you and your community. Check back regularly for updates.

Last update: March 30, 2020

Can I expect a stimulus check?

If you are single, you filed taxes for 2018 and you made less than $99,000.00 per year, then you will probably receive a stimulus check after Congress passed the CARES Act last week. Individuals who made less than $75,000.00 in 2018 will receive $1,200.00 (and for every $100 you made over that threshold; your check will be reduced by $5).

If you are married, you and your spouse filed taxes for 2018 and you collectively make less than $150,000.00, then you can also expect a stimulus check for you and your spouse.

People who owe child support will not receive stimulus checks. Check with an accountant to make sure you qualify.

Are my student loans affected by the CARES Act?

Yes. Not only has your interest rate plummeted to zero, but the national CARES Act passed last week says that student loans do not have to paid for six months. This delay applies only to federally-held student loans. Contact your loan servicer to find out whether your April payment will be required, but by May most providers will have stopped collecting from you.

What was the purpose of Governor Ivey’s March 27, 2020 Order suspending public gatherings?

Even though big urban areas of Alabama were already taking city-wide and county-wide precautions to keep everyone inside and safe, the smaller rural counties had less cases of the virus and therefore less guidelines on how to social distance and prevent the spread of COVID-19. On March 27, Governor Ivey signed an Order of the State Health Officer making it mandatory everywhere in the State for non-essential businesses to close their doors and events with more than ten people to be cancelled.

How is the coronavirus affecting my case with your firm?

If you are injured and currently treating for your injuries, your case is not expected to be delayed. Please keep talking to and seeing your doctors so that you can start to heal, and we will continue to track your progress as you are treated. Remember to take extra precautions when going into a medical facility, like washing your hands or keeping your hands away from your face.

If our office is currently ordering your medical bills and records, it is possible that your case could be slightly delayed. We have a dedicated team of people who communicate with health care providers to get copies of your records and bills, but many doctors’ offices are overwhelmed and therefore it may take a little extra time to compile all of your records.

If your case is currently being negotiated with an insurance company, you should not expect delays at this time. Our office is open for business, and many insurance adjusters are working from home to evaluate and investigate your claim. Negotiations have not been stalled by the coronavirus.

Lastly, if your case is currently in litigation, you can probably expect some delay. Alabama courts were closed state-wide, so hearings and trials have had to be postponed. Many lawyers are opting to cancel or reschedule depositions. However, written discovery and subpoenas are being issued like normal, so we may still need to contact you about your case. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to your lawyer.

I cannot pay my rent or my mortgage because I lost my job due to the COVID-19 outbreak. What should I do?

The first step is to contact your landlord or mortgage provider to explain the situation to them. Some landlords may work with you considering the unusual situation, and many mortgage carriers have forbearance programs for people who are experiencing temporary financial hardship.

If you own a federally-backed mortgage, the CARES Act stops the mortgage holder from foreclosing on you until May 17, 2020. It also gives you the right to request a forbearance – or a temporary hold – on paying your mortgage, whether you’re behind on your payments or not. The temporary hold on payments will last 180 days, and you can request an extra 180 days after that. Importantly, the forbearance will not affect your credit score.

Alabama law has changed recently to allow more people to file for unemployment. You can apply if you lost your job (even temporarily) due to the outbreak. Apply by going to the Alabama Department of Labor website, but go to the site early – it has been overwhelmed with applicants in the last two weeks.

There are resources around Birmingham that can help you if you live locally. United Way can connect you with organizations that can help with utilities and food so that you can save more money for rent. When the Jefferson County Civil Courthouse opens to the public again, the Volunteer Lawyers group hosts a free legal clinic once per week to help people who are being foreclosed upon or who have other legal issues caused by the pandemic.

The county and state health departments have issued regulations limiting gatherings of more than 25 people. Is violating a health department order an actual crime or are these just guidelines?

Violating a state health department order is a crime in Alabama. The state health department orders were adopted as emergency rules by the Alabama State Health Officer, which makes the orders enforceable by statute (Ala. Code § 22-2-14). Hosting or attending a gathering of 25 people or more, where people cannot stand 6 feet apart, is a misdemeanor punishable by fines of $25-$500 per day.

Do salaried workers still get paid during shutdowns? Are hourly workers entitled to be paid?

Not necessarily. If you are on a salary, your employer must pay you for the full day if you work any part of that day (from home or in the office). If the business is shut down completely, and you as a salaried worker cannot work any part of that day, then you may be required to use sick/medical/vacation leave in order to be paid for that day.

Hourly workers will likely not be paid during shutdowns. An employer is not required to pay an hourly worker if that hourly worker is not working.

Importantly, Alabama is an at-will employment state; employers can fire anyone at any time for any reason as long as that person is not in a protected class (based on age, race, religion, disability, etc.). If you are a salaried or an hourly worker and your employer is doing something to help you get through the shut downs – like giving you paid sick leave or saving your job for when the pandemic is over – then the employer is doing that voluntarily to help you.

How do the school closings affect my custody agreements for my kids?

Custody agreements are governed by the specific order entered in your case, so any questions would be answered by reading the official custody order entered when the agreement was made. Although no official orders have been issued in Alabama, higher courts in other states have issued some guidance on how orders will be interpreted amidst the COVID-19 pandemic; for example, in Tennessee, the school calendar will control custody (i.e. if you have your kids for spring break, but the break is extended because of the virus, then you still have to give the kids to the other parent at the end of the week because the school calendar controls). The best thing to do is to contact your family law attorney and ask how your custody agreement would be interpreted if a problem arises.

Will workers’ compensation insurance cover me if I catch the virus at work?

It depends upon how the exposure occurred. To get the benefit of workers’ compensation benefits, you need to prove that you were injured during active employment. It is very difficult to prove that you definitively caught the virus at work (and not at the grocery store or at a gas pump, for example). However, medical workers may have a stronger case to gain workers’ compensation insurance benefits because their job involves likely mandatory exposure to the virus.

I feel like my neighbors are not taking the virus seriously, and they keep hosting parties. If my elderly mother gets sick, can I sue my neighbors for failing to follow the health department regulations?

Whenever a civil lawsuit is filed for damages, you must prove (1) that your neighbors had a duty to act reasonably to protect you, (2) that they breached that duty and acted unreasonably, and (3) that your mother got sick as a result.

In these uncertain times, people likely do have a duty to follow state law and avoid large gatherings. It is also pretty clear that they breached that duty by continuing to hold parties of more than 25 people. Although it may be difficult to prove your mother got sick as a result of the parties, you’d have a stronger case if your mother was completely quarantined and the only interaction, she had with the public was your neighbor’s parties. Talk to a personal injury lawyer who offers free consultations if you believe you or a family member got sick due to the negligence of someone else. During this epidemic, the entire public has a responsibility to take reasonable measures to contain the novel coronavirus.

I am away from my office because of a temporary shutdown, but I cannot pay my bills. What can I do?

File for unemployment. The State of Alabama has relaxed regulations on unemployment benefits because of the coronavirus epidemic. If you are legally quarantined by a doctor, your employer shut down because of the epidemic, or you have a confirmed case of COVID-19, then you are entitled to apply for your full income up to around $550 per week. If you are away from work because you are caring for a family member with COVID-19, then you may also apply for benefits of 2/3 of your income up to $200 per week.

Other restrictions on unemployment benefits have been lifted, too. There is no “waiting period” before you apply, and you are no longer required to prove that you are actively looking for work while you are receiving benefits.

You can apply for unemployment benefits on the Alabama Department of Labor website but start early and stay patient because the website has been overloaded with requests in the past week. Some reports indicate that it has taken members of the public seven or eight hours to complete the application due to website issues.

As of March 23, 2020, there is a potential third stimulus package being negotiated in Congress to help individuals while they are laid off. The stimulus package may have additional measures to help you, like individual or family payments in cash, slight increases in social security payments, breaks in payroll taxes or relief from student loan payments. Details on this stimulus package are unknown and nothing is guaranteed, but there is potentially more help coming on the federal level.

While you’re waiting for relief, talk to your mortgage provider, landlord, or other company collecting a bill. Many businesses have introduced measures to help customers who cannot afford to stay current on their bills.

If my child’s day care closes down, am I still responsible for paying my child’s tuition?
Each day care has a different contract with their parents, so the answer to this question can be found in your initial contract with the day care. Generally, however, day cares have the right to continue to charge during closings that are outside of the day care’s control. Most day cares are small, local businesses in Alabama and continuing to pay tuition will not only help your local community, but it will also guarantee your child’s spot when the epidemic is over, and it will help ensure that there is a day care to return to.

I had a contract with a customer, but I couldn’t perform my duties because of the coronavirus. Does the customer still have to pay me?

Contract questions are always governed by the terms of contract; read the wording carefully and focus on any portions of the contract that address cancellations (whichever party had to cancel for whatever reason).

Generally, when someone cannot perform under a contract because of an unpredictable event or a new regulation prohibiting performance, then legally there was an “act of God” (i.e., natural disaster, epidemic) or “mutual mistake” (i.e., you both assumed beaches would be open) that cancels the contract. If a contract is cancelled, you are excused from performing your end of the contract, but the other party is also excused from paying you. Non-refundable fees are still generally non-refundable, but most contracts will provide for some sort of refund to a customer if a contract is not completed. Talk to a business, personal injury or contract lawyer if you have more specific questions.

I run a small business in Birmingham and the pandemic is hitting my business hard. What are my options?

You are not alone in struggling to keep your business running. The City of Birmingham Director of Finance said that the City is expected to lose $9 million in revenue over the next four months due to the virus affecting local small businesses.

This question is best saved for a business or financial advisor, but from a legal perspective you may want to keep an eye on Major Woodfin’s proposed Birmingham Strong initiative. It’s a large fund intended to help offset losses and provide low-interest loans to small businesses up to $25,000.00 to help them stay afloat during these uncertain times.

To give feedback on the Birmingham Strong initiative before it is put into place, please visit the Birmingham Strong website.

I received a call about getting a coronavirus test in exchange for my Medicare number. Am I at risk of getting scammed or hacked?

Yes. The coronavirus epidemic has opened the door for scammers to try to gain access to your personal information, and they are particularly targeting senior citizens. Scams are showing up in form of phone calls pretending to be a hospital, fake charities, government imposters, and even purported “door-to-door” testing in exchange for social security numbers. Do not fall for these scams. If you feel like you need to get tested, call your healthcare provider and make an appointment at a certified testing site. As of March 22, 2020, there are two active testing sites in Jefferson County: UAB and Ross Bridge Medical Center.


Birmingham Police officer collision with a sedan near Forestdale, Alabama

Posted on Wednesday, March 25th, 2020 at 3:34 pm    

During a vehicle pursuit near Forestdale, Alabama, a Birmingham Police officer collided with a sedan filled with two adults and three children, before continuing on to crash into into an Exxon gas station. The accident happened Saturday around 4pm on Highway 78 at the intersection of Heflin Avenue. All six people involved in the accident were taken to nearby hospitals. The police officer regained consciousness when he arrived at the hospital. The severity of the injuries is unknown at this time.

With many parties involved, what happens now?
WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Ken Riley.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Ken, in this situation where the people in the sedan were injured during a vehicle pursuit, who is liable? Is the police officer or the car that they were chasing at fault?

KEN RILEY: We do not know all of the facts about the accident, but if I were representing them, I would ask a lot of questions about how the accident happened. Even officers are held to a negligence standard in Alabama if they exceed the authority. If they are in an emergency chase, they still have a duty of reasonable care to other innocent third parties. There are guidelines that police officers must follow when electing to pursue a vehicle in a high-speed chase. The officer, along with the city, county or state that employs them, may be liable for damages caused during the pursuit.

TIFFANY BITTNER: What about the vehicle that the police officer was chasing? Could they be liable for the accident between the sedan and the police officer?

KEN RILEY: The driver of the vehicle, as well as the vehicle’s owner and insurance companies can be required to pay a settlement or judgment if their actions contributed to cause the wreck, injuries and damages or even death.

TIFFANY BITTNER: What do you recommend that the injured parties do now?

KEN RILEY: The next natural step for them is to get the accident report and reach out to their own auto insurance company. Because of the complexity of handling cases against municipalities, I would contact an attorney immediately – you only have 6 months to file a notice of claim against a municipality.

TIFFANY BITTNER: I hope no one involved endured life-threatening injuries and everyone had on their seatbelts to help brace for the impact. Ken, how many cases do you see a year where someone’s injuries were worsened by not having their seatbelt on?

KEN RILEY: With the safety features becoming standard in new cars, we are seeing less and less clients who were not wearing their seatbelt during their auto accident. However, it does still happen, and it always pains me to see someone suffer when the severity could have been prevented. Seatbelts save lives, period.

Kirby Farris on Jacob and Breanna Eaton Fatal Car Wreck

Posted on Tuesday, March 10th, 2020 at 12:49 pm    

Breanna Brown Eaton, a 24-year-old youth pastor, and her unborn daughter, Adelaide Bryn Eaton, passed away on the way to the hospital after a fatal car accident in Walker County. Jacob Eaton, Breanna Eaton’s husband, was driving and is in very critical condition at UAB Hospital’s Trauma Unit with two broken shins, a broken upper left arm, a broken tail bone, a pelvic injury, and a collapsed lung. A 2008 Ford Taurus driven by James Long of Tennessee struck the Eatons’ car head-on around 10 p.m. on Hwy 69, 12 miles north of Jasper.

A GoFundMe has been established to help Jacob Eaton with his medical costs and the funeral of his wife and unborn daughter. Donations can be made here.

What follows this tragedy?

WBRC Fox6’s LawCall Host, Tiffany Bittner, interviews Attorney Kirby Farris.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Our hearts break for this family and the Winston County community. A GoFundMe account has been established for Jacob Eaton. Other than funeral costs, what kind of expenses can he expect to see related to this tragic accident?

KIRBY FARRIS: Mr. Eaton experienced severe injuries that will take time to heal, but he will heal. The emotional and psychological injuries are something that can actually take longer to address. There is no doubt that Mr. Eaton is a strong, devoted man and husband – but even the strongest of us need time, and sometimes counseling, to get through a tragedy like this. Even with health insurance, medical expenses can add up quickly. Depending on the amount of coverage, James Long’s insurance carrier is likely responsible for compensating Jacob Eaton for medical expenses, as well as for the pain he is suffering and his time away from work. Unfortunately, since there are fatalities involved, Jacob Eaton has a right to assert punitive damages against the adverse driver and also recover the cost of funeral arrangements.

TIFFANY BITTNER: According to AL.com, Breanna Eaton was so excited to be a mother and had struggled to get pregnant. What rights does her unborn daughter have against James Long’s insurance company?

KIRBY FARRIS: Alabama law protects the unborn. In fact, recent law establishes that even pre-viable fetuses have the same rights as anyone else. The significance of this as it applies to this and all other similar situations is that not only can there be a wrongful death claim based on the death of Mrs. Eaton, but also for their unborn daughter. The purpose of this law is to prevent similar future harms from happing again.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Kirby what are the chances that James Long was distracted when he collided with the Eatons?

KIRBY FARRIS: I would say there is a 90% chance he was distracted. A driver can be distracted by more than just a cell phone. Changing the radio can distract a driver. Eating in the car can take your eyes off the road for just enough time to cause serious harm to other drivers. This is why we routinely educate young and inexperienced drivers on the dangers of distracted driving.

TIFFANY BITTNER: Kirby, you are from Winston County – what advice to you recommend for the friends and family of Mr. Eaton?

KIRBY FARRIS: Support. Support, love and prayer.

Jimmy Max Causey car wreck

Posted on Thursday, February 27th, 2020 at 10:11 am    

Jimmy Max Causey car wreck

Jimmy Max Causey, 67, of Morgan, Georgia, died in a wreck involving a wrong-way driver on Interstate 65 in Birmingham, Alabama.  The crash happened on the morning of Sunday, February 23, 2020, involving Causey’s car and a southbound pickup truck headed the wrong way on I-65 near University Boulevard.  Causey died at the scene.  Three other people were injured in the crash and taken to the hospital.

What’s next for Causey’s family and others that were injured?
Farris, Riley & Pitt’s Marketing Director, Chelsie King interviews Attorney Ken Riley.

CHELSIE KING: Ken, our hearts go out to this gentleman’s family. More often than we would like, our law firm sees fatal auto accidents like this. How does the family know if they need to hire an attorney or not?

KEN RILEY: You are right, we have represented many clients who lost a loved one in an auto or truck wreck and it is always a life shattering event for the family. Not all victims of an auto or truck accident need to hire an attorney; however, in this situation, I would recommend that this family be well represented. Wrongful death cases are unique in Alabama in that any financial recovery passes outside of an estate and to family members by statute. Also, the measure of damage in Alabama is punitive in nature – in other words, the family is not compensated for the loss of life, but rather receives a punitive damages award to prevent and deter future similar conduct and punish the wrongdoer. In this case, we have a driver that was driving down the wrong side of the road. Had that person been drinking? Is there another party that could be held responsible? Those are questions that an experienced attorney will investigate.

Also, what if the person who caused this tragedy is uninsured or underinsured? What then? That is where the value of an experienced attorney will come into play. A good attorney will identify ALL sources of insurance available to the family. In these situations, if the family takes a quick settlement from the liability insurance company, they very well may close a technical door that may have allowed additional recovery.

CHELSIE KING: The family needs to find an experienced personal injury attorney. How do you recommend they find the best attorney for their loved one?

KEN RILEY: I suggest that when hiring an attorney, look for someone who is respected by insurance companies. They must be respected for trying cases if the insurance company is unwilling to be fair. It may be in our clients’ best interest to settle their case, but when insurance companies are not offering what our client is entitled to, we will take their case to trial.

CHELSIE KING: So, should someone who is looking for an attorney find that information on their website?

KEN RILEY: Yes, some of that information will be mentioned on their website on testimonial pages or case result pages, but you can also call the law firm and ask about their recent verdicts. That information is public knowledge.

CHELSIE KING: The accident happened on I-65 near University Boulevard. I drive that stretch of road daily and it can be very congested with drivers crossing four lanes trying to exit the interstate. Even without the truck headed the wrong way, it is a dangerous curve of the interstate. Have you represented other clients with accidents in that area?

KEN RILEY: Off the top of my head, I know we have been hired by four to five clients in the past few months with different accidents at the University Boulevard Exit or the 3rd Avenue North exit. As you said, it is a congested area with traffic merging or exiting across four lanes of traffic. Distracted driving plays a major role in these wrecks. There was also some recent road work that was completed, which may contribute to the confusion in the area. All of these things need to be considered.


The Teen and Young Adult Vaping Epidemic

Posted on Monday, February 3rd, 2020 at 11:14 am    

Written by Attorney Calle Mendenhall

In early 2019, news outlets began reporting on serious illnesses and deaths attributed to e-cigarette devices. Since then, several dozen deaths and hundreds of illnesses have come to light, and new multi-district litigation has emerged in the Northern District of California to handle injury claims as well as claims related to the marketing practices of the largest e-cigarette manufacturer, JUUL. But how did this epidemic even begin with all of the knowledge companies, consumers, and regulators have on tobacco?

The JUUL e-cigarettes and flavor pods came on the market in 2015. It is alleged that JUUL’s founding members accessed thousands of Big Tobacco industry documents from earlier litigations that were made public in 1997. The documents contained aggressive marketing tactics detailing how to promote their products; two said tactics involve seducing new smokers by using candy-like flavors, such as mango, cucumber, fruit medley, and crème brûlée, and getting numerous social media influencers and celebrities to promote the products. The makers of JUUL also marketed its product as a “safer choice” to a regular cigarette. These e-cigarettes, however, are anything but safe.

JUUL’s pre-filled cartridges contain a higher concentration of nicotine per pod than a pack of cigarettes. It is estimated that one JUUL cartridge or pod can deliver as much nicotine as 30-40 cigarettes. Once addicted to that level of nicotine concentration, young adults struggle to quit smoking. Sustained usage of e-cigarettes is beginning to show the following documented health risks: nicotine poisoning, seizures, strokes, heart attacks, heart problems, lung/respiratory problems, mental health/behavioral problems, and can even lead to death.

This alarming growth in addiction and injury in our young adults at the hands of corporations is inexcusable and must be addressed. We are optimistic that those affected by these products will be successful in Juul litigation and will put an end to the sale and distribution of these e-cigarettes.
