Hiring an Attorney During COVID-19
While the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) has brought many aspects of life to a standstill, many people are still out on the roads. Though they may be practicing social distancing while out and about, many people still need to shop for groceries or medications or go to their jobs. This means that unfortunately, there is still the potential for car accidents, even during this very scary and uncertain time.
If you are in a car accident and need an attorney, what should you do to get the help you need?
Scheduling a Consultation during Coronavirus
To make things easier for their potential clients, some attorneys—including us at Perenich, Caulfield, Avril & Noyes—are offering initial consultations through Zoom or Facetime. When you’ve been injured in a car accident, an initial consultation is very important. It is a chance for your potential attorney to learn more about your case, but it is also a chance for you to see if the attorney is someone who you would like to work with. It can help you decide if an attorney is experienced, competent, and the best person to help you find the compensation and justice you deserve.
While doing your consultation through Zoom or Facetime might be different than meeting your attorney at their office, it ensures that you will still get the information you need. It also means that you can meet your potential attorney from the comfort of your own home, and will not have to put yourself at risk from coronavirus by making the trip to an attorney’s office.
If you decide to sign on with an attorney after your consultation, many steps of your case can still be handled without face-to-face interaction. At our office, our attorneys and staff are always happy to handle any questions via call or email. Many files and documents, like police reports from your car accident, can also be sent digitally.
