The COVID-19 global pandemic is affecting every area of life in the United States including the way personal injury cases are handled. If you were in an accident of any kind due to someone else’s negligence, you should understand how the coronavirus pandemic is currently affecting court systems in the United States. During this unprecedented modern moment in history, courts and law firms are both attempting to ensure that people’s legal rights are protected.
Most law firms already have their attorneys and staff working remotely, which means that you still have the ability to receive legal representation in a personal injury case. Modern technology allows victims to visit with their attorneys through teleconferencing and videoconferencing, as well as file many documents electronically.
David Aylor Law Firm is now open and meeting with clients in person. We are following CDC and DHEC guidelines to ensure the safety of our clients.
Courts are making decisions independently whether or not they will be closed or opened as the current situation continues to develop. Many courts are closed except for emergency hearings. You should always contact prior to going to the actual courthouse, as they may be closed to the public or have special hours due to the global pandemic.
While the courthouse may not be open to the public for normal business hours, there are other important matters they can take care of either electronically or through videoconferencing. In fact, many of your documents required for your personal injury case will be able to be submitted to the court directly.
What Can Be Handled Now?
If you already have a personal injury case in process, many legal actions such as discovery, interrogatories, depositions, and more can be handled through electronic memes. Additionally, if you were injured recently due to someone else’s negligence, you still have the legal right to file a claim for justice and compensation for your injuries and damages.
