It is imperative that the wheels of justice keep turning during the Covid-19 pandemic so that victims of personal injuries can seek remedy for their accidents and that deadlines for making a claim are not missed.

 

Therefore, some changes have been introduced so that claims continue to progress during these challenging times.

 

New Changes Introduced

 

New agreements have been made to allow medical examinations for the purpose of claims to be carried out via video. Many rehabilitation methods, including psychotherapy and physiotherapy will also be undertaken remotely.

 

Lawyers, insurance companies and medical practitioners will be operating in a more flexible way, using video calls, zoom meetings and emails to get claims over the line.

 

Documenting Your Claim

 

We always stress to clients the importance of gathering plenty of evidence and documentation to support their claim. Whilst the world is in turmoil due to the coronavirus crisis, it is more important than ever to document everything involving your injury claim.

 

If you have delayed medical treatment, appointments or struggle to get in contact with parties then make sure this information is documented for your file.

 

Photographs of your injuries or the defect that caused your injuries are key pieces of evidence. It is therefore vital that you ensure that you have backed up any images you have, ideally on a computer as well as your mobile phone. Whilst lawyers and insurers work remotely it is important to have everything to hand so that it can be sent via email.
