Don’t Let Covid Stop You From Getting Legal Help

With most businesses closed and the recommendations to “stay at home” to save lives, people are being very selective about taking risks that might expose them to the virus. It’s easier for some people to shelter at home than others. Essential workers are getting on the subways and busses every day to bring people healthcare, food and medicine, putting themselves at risk to help their community. People continue to be injured due to the negligence and recklessness of others and our rights remain the same. Don’t let Covid stop you for getting legal help.

What Do The Best Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island and Brooklyn Car Accident Attorneys Suggest Doing After A Car Accident During The Pandemic?

Before the pandemic, I always advised people to get checked out at the emergency room after an accident if they were injured. Being treated in the emergency room helps establish that the injuries were caused by the accident, and it is also a safeguard against medical problems that could arise from asymptomatic internal injuries. That said, due to the risk of contracting Covid during the Pandemic, it’s not a good idea to go to an emergency room after a car accident unless it’s absolutely necessary. The police continue to make sure that an ambulance arrives at the scene of any car accident where people are injured. The ENT’s check out the injured persons and usually advise them not to go to the hospital. The best thing to do is call an experienced, high tech Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island or Brooklyn car accident attorney to help you locate safe and appropriate health care. You can call me at 718-261-8114 to arrange for a Zoom or phone consultation.

What Types of Cases Can Queens, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island and Queens Personal Injury Attorneys Handle During The Pandemic?

It’s possible to prosecute most types of claims during the pandemic. Even though the courts are closed, the work of preparing a case can begin so that the claim is ready when the courts open. There’s no reason to delay starting cases. Governor Cuomo has barred malpractice lawsuits against health care professionals treating people with Covid, the only real change regarding cases that can be brought. All other types of claims remain viable, including slip and falls, employment discrimination, false arrest, dog bites and other types of negligence. If you’ve been injured and it’s not your fault, please feel free to call me at 718-261-8114. Wittenstein & Wittenstein is the top Queens, Bronx, Manhattan, Staten Island and Brooklyn personal injury attorney, and we can help you get a case started from the comfort of your home.
