How Coronavirus (COVID-19) Can Affect Your Personal Injury Lawsuit

Can the virus affect your personal injury and auto accident cases?

Like many people around the world, people are uneasy and stressing about the unknown. As personal injury attorneys in West Palm Beach and all of South Florida, we know our clients and prospective clients have concerns about their case. A few areas where your accident claim could be affected:

  • Courthouse schedule and procedures may change, or courthouses are delaying hearings
  •  People are canceling or not paying their insurance premiums which means if you were in an accident, the negligent party might not have insurance to collect damages from
  •  Insurance companies may start to fight harder to pay less in insurance claims

We want to advise you that your auto accident lawyers are well informed and continue to work through every case to ensure you receive the highest compensation possible.

How to Ensure Your Case Value Doesn’t Decrease During The Outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

If you or a loved one was involved in an auto accident, work accident, and you have a workers’ compensation claim open, or slip and fall accident, it is crucial you continue to seek your medical treatments. Doctor-recommended treatments need to remain a high priority regardless of the coronavirus and quarantine. We understand your concern about venturing out to a confined space to seek treatment, which is why we suggest to use all the necessary precautions like using gloves, keep your distance, wear a mask, don’t touch your face and thoroughly wash your hands. Unfortunately, your fear of the virus and not wanting to venture out to seek treatment will not change the fact that medical care is needed to maximize your case value. 

Seeking doctor-recommended treatments without delay or a missed appointment can only increase your chances to maximize your compensation. Without treatment, your West Palm Beach personal injury attorneys are not able to prove the extent of your injuries. We prove your injuries through your medical records, and without your medical diagnoses, progress, or regression, we can not maximize your compensation. Additionally, if you delay your treatment, two things will happen:

  1. We can’t settle your case until all treatments are fulfilled, which means you won’t be compensated until your personal injury claim is resolved
  2. The opposing council can claim that your injuries weren’t substantial, and you are lying about your personal injuries.

What Happens If I Can’t Get Treatment For My Accident Because I Have Coronavirus?

Getting the doctor-recommended treatment is a top priority; however, there may be a time when you can not get an appointment promptly, or you came down with coronavirus.  If you find yourself in this predicament, contact your personal injury attorneys at Advocates USA to keep us fully informed. If the hospitals or doctors’ offices are utterly full due to the coronavirus, schedule the first available appointment and advise us.

Knowledge is power, and if your lawyers are well informed, we can do our job at coming up with the best game plan for your specific situation to help maximize your compensation.
