COVID-19 has changed the world, so it only makes sense that the pandemic would also affect personal injury claims and cases. With courts closing to stop the spread of the virus, your case may take longer to settle, but don’t let that stop you from getting the care you need. Attorneys are still taking cases, and doctors who work on a lien basis are still accepting new clients on a lien basis. So, while there are definitely new challenges, the process can still be relatively similar to what you are used to. Here’s all you need to know about how COVID-19 is changing the world of personal injury.
If you’ve been injured in an auto accident, you will want to seek help right away. This is for two reasons: One, you will begin healing faster and prevent long-term damage by getting your injuries looked at right away. And two, getting documentation and findings early on in your condition will help your attorney with your personal injury case. It helps you physically and legally, so it’s important to do this. Luckily, COVID has not changed this part of the game, and you can find roughly 200 medical professionals who work on a lien basis right now on our list of qualified doctors.
The main change you want to think about during the pandemic is the following. Due to lockdown orders, many want to immediately settle early to just “deal with the situation” but this might not be the best idea. So, don’t just accept a low settlement because of COVID. You should trust your attorney yet also have real conversation with them about the pros and cons of settling your case earlier or later down the road when the courts are fully functional. This discussion may not have been important before, but it’s important now.
So, it’s possible that your settlement process may take longer, but that’s okay. If you have the right doctor who works on a lien basis, you can trust they will, at least, provide you with the best care throughout your journey. It’s not a race to get you better and get your case settled. So, don’t let COVID rush you. Take all the time you need and be sure to see the correct specialists so you can heal. And be sure to strike up the right conversations with the right professionals.
You may also be afraid at this time to seek care because of a fear of the virus. Well, luckily, our doctors here at Doctors on Liens are all taking extreme precautionary measures to ensure all patients are safe. From waiting in your car, to UVC light sterilization, to extra disinfectant measures, this is one less thing you should worry about at this time.
