Right now, there is a great deal of unrest and concerns about COVID-9. As a result, the courthouses have been closed and cases may be backlogged. If you have a personal injury case stemming from a slip and fall, workplace injury, trip and fall accident or any other incident, you may wonder what will happen to your personal injury case in Hollywood.
Your Case May Still Move Forward
The good news is that many personal injury claims are settled out of court. It is still possible to negotiate and many attorneys are turning to virtual meetings to keep their staff and clients up to date. It is therefore still possible to consult with an attorney and to negotiate with insurance companies and other parties as part of your claim. As the world slowly reopens, cases will eventually be heard in court, too.
If you have a personal injury case working its way through the legal system right now, consult with your attorney to stay up to date about the situation. Your attorney can give you updates and can help you understand what options are available to you right now.
If you are having trouble paying the bills because you have not yet received compensation for your claim, you may wish to speak to your attorney. Personal injury lawyers understand the added financial pressure that a claim can cause plaintiffs and can work with you to explore possibilities.
You Can Still File a Personal Injury Claim
If you have just gotten injured and are worried about filing a claim because of the challenges of the current world, know that attorneys are working virtually. You will still want to document your injuries and record the details of what happened. You will still want to consult with a personal injury as soon as possible to find out whether you have a claim.
Now more than ever, with financial instability, it is important to get fair compensation for your injuries so you can pay for your medical costs, lost wages, and other expenses you have incurred through no fault of your own after being injured. If you do not file a claim or put off filing a claim, you may not be able to get insurance money or compensation later, so it is important to get legal help if you need it and file claims as usual to protect your rights.
