There are so many unknowns with the current situation. Never before have we been faced with a pandemic of this magnitude. Every aspect of our lives is impacted. And the legal process and institutions are no exception. If you are currently involved in an active personal injury lawsuit, you may have added anxiety over how the backlash from this pandemic will affect your suit.
With everything from government to business closure… and in some states… complete lock-down, this poses a challenge.
To help stay on track with your personal injury case, we recommend:
- Continue medical treatment, if possible.
With many closures, appointments are likely to be canceled. Elective surgeries are canceled. If your medical provider can provide treatment or appointments through telemedical, and you can meet with your provider though video conference or phone, do so. If not, it’s important to be diligent in rescheduling any appointments that may be canceled. If you can receive medical treatment, we recommend following the advice and recommendations from the CDC and practice social distancing, frequent handwashing, and other precautions.
- Keep your legal team Informed.
As appointments get canceled or rescheduled, it is important to keep your lawyer up to date on your treatment plans. Your case and its value can depend on continued treatment.
At The Jaspon Firm, we are closely monitoring the Coronavirus and identifying how the virus is affecting our current cases. Accordingly, we are advising our clients on how best to stay on track with their medical treatments throughout the coming weeks.
