Can I Still Settle My Injury Lawsuit During Coronavirus? Answers Here

Legal Advice

With covid still raging on, there’s a lot of uncertainty in the legal world when it comes to the progress of personal injury lawsuits and claims. This is a time when many families are struggling to feed themselves as well as have a roof over their heads, and the fact that many have to reconsider essentials can lead to personal injury claimants to want to expedite or settle their cases just so they can financially stay afloat.

Have you been injured during covid, or has your case stalled due to the slow-moving courts due to lockdowns and a backlog of cases within the system? Before you get tempted to pick up the phone and call the insurance company and accept their offer, call us at (773) 825-3547. We’ll help take a look at the particulars of your case with a fresh set of eyes and see what we can do to get you maximum compensation within a reasonable timeframe.

Don’t Accept The Insurance Company Offer

Insurance companies are undoubtedly having a field day at the moment due to the number of people considering low-ball settlement offers for cases which would have run into the hundreds of thousands had they been negotiated by aggressive attorneys last year. Low-balling is a common insurance company tactic, and they tend to get you when you’re at your weakest both physically and mentally. You might rationalize that the $30,000 insurance settlement payout for your personal injury lawsuit is the best thing for your family at the moment, but the reality is that covid19 may be on its way out this year on account of the efficacy of the vaccine as well as data showing a decrease in deaths and new infections. Waiting a couple months longer can therefore turn the $30,000 into a $100,000 settlement coupled with help from our best covid injury attorneys.

Should You Seek Treatment  During the Pandemic? Personal Injury Law

Injured individuals still have to seek medical treatment regardless of the pandemic. This is because every treatment will document the severity of the injury as well as the medical diagnoses and series of treatments which will legally justify your compensation amount. We understand that a fear exists when it comes to going to the hospital at the moment because of the possibility of exposure. However, the best thing to do would be to call ahead and ask the facility about the protective measures they are taking to protect you and your loved ones. As always, mask up, and consider a change of clothes and take a disinfecting shower before getting into your premises once back from the doctors’ office.
