Protecting Your Rights During A Pandemic

Find Out If You're Eligible for Compensation

Quick Navigation

There are a lot of things that have come to a halt during this pandemic. Your personal injury case is not one of them!! Here are a few things we would recommend you do to protect your rights.

Seek Medical Attention

We do not want to encourage anyone to overrun emergency rooms or hospitals at this time.

However, if you are seriously injured, you need to seek treatment as soon as possible, so that your injuries are not exacerbated. For minor injuries, call your regular physician and follow their advice.

Exchange Information

Make sure you exchange contact information with other parties involved in any accident. You can do this while also complying with social distancing guidelines.

Record their names, addresses, phone numbers, and insurance information. Please do not simply drive away without gathering this essential information. Just keep in mind to stay 6 feet apart.

Report Motor Vehicle Accidents

Law enforcement is still working accidents and it is important that you make a police report.

Call an Attorney As Soon As Possible

We have plenty of staff and attorneys still working to ensure our current and potential clients get the same excellent service as always.

In times like these, it’s common for people to not want to bother with an attorney and to try to handle the case themselves. Now, more than ever, it’s imperative that you have an advocate on your side to protect you from insurance companies whose only goal is to give you as little money as possible. Let us be your voice – you have enough to worry about as it is.

Keep Good Records

This is important any time, but especially important now. Take photos of the scene of an accident and photos of your injuries if possible. Keep a journal of your injuries, pain, and treatment.

This is especially important right now as many are having to do their physical therapy at home. Take photos of you doing the therapy and make notes from your conversations with your therapist.

Keep a File and Back It Up

Keeping all the information in a folder until you can physically meet with an attorney to provide those documents will help you stay organized and not lose anything. Making backups of any digital documents or evidence is crucial. All it takes is one drop of a phone and all your data may be lost forever.
