How Will COVID-19 Affect Your Personal Injury Case?

Personal injury cases in Pennsylvania are still moving forward. Some cases may experience a delay due to court limitations, but you can still pursue any and all personal injury cases in Pennsylvania during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Each case is different, and the impact of COVID-19 on a case depends on factors like whether it's best for your case to be resolved by settlement before filing a lawsuit, by settlement after filing a lawsuit, or by verdict. A qualified attorney can explain exactly how your case might be affected.

We are as committed to giving you the best possible client experience as we have always been.

Are Courts Open in Pennsylvania for Personal Injury Cases?

Pennsylvania courts are open; however, there they are operating on a limited basis due to what's called a declaration of "judicial emergency." This means that some cases may experience delays during the litigation process due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Note: Court limitations are less of a concern if your case is resolved by a settlement.

Our firm is closely monitoring the situation and staying up-to-date on the latest information regarding Pennsylvania courts. This allows us to effectively plan for how your case might be impacted and make the necessary adjustments.

Should I Still File a Personal Injury Claim During the COVID-19 Pandemic?

Yes, you should still make and file a personal injury claim.

Unfortunately, accidents still happen, even during times like these. Though you may feel hesitant about filing a personal injury case claim during COVID-19, important timelines—called statues of limitations—still apply.

If your claim isn't filed before the statute of limitations deadline, you may forever lose the right to recover compensation for your injuries.

We can handle every aspect of your case virtually, including managing deadlines. It's our job to ensure all deadlines are met, giving you the best possible chance at a successful outcome.
