Can Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) Affect My Auto Accident Case?
You may be wondering about Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and if it is safe to be out in public when you need a personal injury attorney. You also may be wondering if it is safe to go get the medical treatment you need, whether it be at the hospital or a reputable chiropractor’s office. Your Sarasota accident attorneys, Hale Law, have answers.
When it comes to hiring an accident attorney, we can sign you up in our sanitized, clean office space, or one of our attorneys will drive to the safety of your home and discuss your potential injury case there. We can also do virtual meetings if you feel most comfortable with minimum contact with other individuals during these trying times.
Obtaining the Medical Treatment You Need
The most important thing to do after an auto accident is to obtain proper medical treatment. Your health is most important, and we want to ensure your concerns are safely addressed. When you contact us for representation, we will be in contact with your medical practitioners to ensure not only they are forwarding us your appropriate medical documentation and billing ledgers so we can be successful in your case, we also will be ensuring they are following all the proper medical standards that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has put into place. In Sarasota County, all medical practices are expected to follow proper health procedures to prevent the spread of disease.
According to ABC7 WWSB, Sarasota County announced Thursday that all events, county or privately run, over the next 30 days with an expected attendance of 250 or more people at county facilities will be canceled. They are urging community members to follow guidelines from the Florida Health Department and CDC, including:
- Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds.
- Cough into the sleeve of your shirt and dispose of used tissues.
- Avoid sharing food and drinks with others.
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, especially with unclean hands.
