As Southern California personal injury lawyers, we have received questions about how COVID-19 will impact personal injury claims. We want to provide some insight into how the COVID-19 crisis is impacting personal injury claims.
Is Karlin & Karlin Open Remotely?
Our physical office is located in Glendale, Calif., serving personal injury clients throughout California. We are experienced personal injury lawyers who have helped clients through some of the toughest times in their lives. Our firm is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to serve personal injury clients. We continue to effectively serve our clients remotely through video conferencing, telephone consultations, email, and electronic document transfer.
Should I Still be Getting Medical Treatment?
Many of our personal injury clients must receive appropriate medical treatment. This generally includes multiple therapist and doctor’s appointments following an injury. You must follow the doctor-recommended treatment to maximize the value of your claim. Unfortunately, many clients now fear going to the therapist or doctor’s office because of exposure to coronavirus. Although we are concerned about your exposure, we recommend that individuals continue to go to appointments, assuming that your medical care provider is utilizing strong protective measures. If not please contact our office at once. Further, if you are immunocompromised, and absolutely can not make it to appointments, please keep us informed of your situation
How are Court Procedures Impacted?
The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has forced many courts in California to close or limit access. However, the courts remain open to receive new filings electronically. To determine how the court closure may affect your personal injury claim, please call us.
Should I Wait to Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?
If you were recently injured in an accident, do not delay contacting a personal injury lawyer because of COVID-19. Our personal injury lawyers are able to service all new and current clients remotely. One of the biggest mistakes made in a personal injury case is waiting too long to take action. Waiting to take action can drastically reduce the case value of a personal injury case.
How Should I Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer?
All our new and current clients can meet with a lawyer by phone or video conferencing. A lawyer can help guide you through the complexities of a personal injury lawsuit during this pandemic. The pandemic is only temporary, but a personal injury can impact the rest of your life.
