How The Coronavirus Could Be Affecting Your Personal Injury Claim
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected every area of the personal injury claims process. Your personal injury lawyer, the insurance companies, and the courts have all had to adopt new behaviors and strategies. Unfortunately, many of these changes have affected claimants the most. The coronavirus could be affecting your case in many ways to include:
Increased pressure to settle your case
Unavailable medical treatment for injuries
Slow or non-payment of insurance premiums
Loss of income or job
Most interactions with your lawyer are remote
Insurance companies have likely taken note of the economic downtown and have become much more aggressive in personal injury suits.
A proven personal injury lawyer will fight for your rights and pressure the insurance companies to pay you what you deserve. Be sure to consult with your personal injury lawyer before dealing with insurance adjusters.
Additionally, it’s important to be aware of the court closures, delays, reduced hours, and procedural changes during these unprecedented times. Our personal injury lawyers stay up-to-date on the latest requirements and work hard to ensure your case is seen as soon as possible.
Are The Insurance Companies Still Paying Claims?
The insurance companies are obligated by law to make payments to claimants that have either settled or won a personal injury case in court. However, you can anticipate stronger opposition and potentially shady tactics by insurance adjusters when negotiating for a fair settlement.
The California Department of Insurance has noted the potential for insurance providers to relax on paying claims. They have issued an official statement mandating that all investigations, processing, and claim payments continue, even during the pandemic.
