Although we’re all still under the stay-at-home order in California, accidents and personal injury cases are still as prevalent as ever. Unfortunately, just because the world has slowed down and been forced to take a pause doesn’t mean that accidents and injuries have, too.

So, what if you’re involved in an accident during the COVID-19 pandemic? Can you still call a California injury lawyer?

The answer is yes! And we’re going to walk you through how to hire a personal injury lawyer remotely and still receive the same care, attention, and justice that you would by seeking counsel in office.

Navigating Our New Normal

There’s no question that the global COVID-19 pandemic has forced us all into changes that we never saw coming. From lost jobs and wages to all of a sudden playing teacher to our kids, times are tough and uncertain.

As we all work to navigate and adjust to our new normal, there’s still the threat of accidents and injuries. In fact, California and other states around the country have reported a severe uptick in speeding drivers on the now less busy roadways.

As the crisis prolongs and the spring months are upon us, we’re all looking for ways to get outside of our homes, whether that be a car ride with the family, a walk through the neighborhood, or a bike ride. While we’re out and about, the risk for accidents and injuries are still there, so it’s important to be mindful of your surroundings at all times.

What to Do After a Car Accident

Even the most prepared and cautious motorist can experience an accident out on the road. And when it comes to what steps you should take immediately following an accident, nothing has changed.

It’s vital that you contact a California injury lawyer ASAP. After you alert the proper authorities, your next phone call should be to a personal injury attorney, even before you contact your insurance company.

When it comes to auto accidents and personal injury cases, there’s no time to waste and your swift action can make or break your case.
