Personal Injury Claims in the Era of COVID-19 in San Diego, California

Car With Damage If you've been injured in a car accident, you may have many urgent questions. Among them, might be: how might the coronavirus pandemic affect my personal injury claim and car accident claim in San Diego, California? If you've been recently injured in a car accident, you may be facing unexpected medical bills, lost wages due to missed time from work, a course of rehabilitation, and pain and suffering. The coronavirus pandemic should make no difference in your right to seek damages for these losses. Your insurance company is still required to honor its obligations to you and your family, and negligent parties are still responsible for paying for damages caused by neglect or negligence. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic in San Diego, many court cases are being handled by video conference and some cases have been delayed due to the pandemic. Ultimately, what does this mean if you've been hurt in a car accident in San Diego, California and want to pursue a personal injury claim?

It means you should follow all procedures you otherwise would follow after an accident. Call the police and report the crash. Contact your insurance company and let your insurance adjuster know you've been in an accident. Seek medical care for your injuries and follow up with medical providers as advised.

Are there other factors that can impact your personal injury case during the era of the coronavirus?
