OUR LAWYERS MEET WITH CLIENTS SAFELY DURING CORONA VIRUS SHUTDOWN
Our office has definitely slowed down because of the Corona Virus social distancing rules. Fortunately, it looks like thing are now opening back up a bit. Hopefully, that won’t cause even more problems.
At our office, our lawyers are continuing to work on our cases and working with insurance companies to get our client’s cases settled. But we only have one staff person in the office at a time, where we would usually have 4 staff people, so our output has slowed. The courts have also slowed significantly, with hearings only by phone, and trials postponed indefinitely. Also the opposing lawyers on our cases have had more difficulty working on their cases because of limited staff.
We are still having attorney client meetings, but we are doing them remotely with Facetime or Zoom. People are still being injured in accidents, and need a lawyer to help them with their case and get compensation. Often, the early work we do on a case – getting medical records, medical bills, police reports, etc., is important to be done soon after the accident so additional actions can be taken if necessary. The technology has been extremely helpful with this, allowing us to actually see our clients when we talk to them and get the necessary information.
We are hoping things truly return to normal soon, but in the meantime our accident injury lawyers will continue to meet with clients safely by having virtual meetings over the internet. Of course, we also are available for free phone consultations to discuss your case and give you initial advice to protect your rights.
