Many industries and institutions have been forced to close their doors or alter daily operating hours due to the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic. Considering this unexpected change in business and life, many citizens of Texas are inquiring about how their personal injury cases could be influenced. While no personal injury claim is the same, the following information presents significant insight into personal injury cases during the current pandemic.
Are courts in Texas open to register my personal injury case?
The Supreme Court of Texas and the Court of Criminal Appeals have entered an emergency order remodeling and suspending certain provisions related to court proceedings, in response to COVID-19. It is essential to note that this emergency order does permit for all hearings, statements, and other proceedings of any sort to be taken remotely, such as by audio and video conferencing, and other online resources. So, while a courthouse may be closed, your lawyer can still pursue your case without interruption, provided they have the means to do so.

Can I file personal injury claim during COVID-19 pandemic?
While many continue to stay home and follow social distancing guidelines, accidents will still occur and you can file a personal injury claim even during the COVID-19 pandemic. Injured victims will still need to discuss their case with experienced personal injury lawyers. Although business operations have altered due to COVID-19, you can always converse with a trusted attorney and file a personal injury claim if you get hurt or injured with TLF.
How is car accident coverage affected?
As many industries close and the state unemployment rate rises, some drivers may not be capable to keep up with their insurance premiums. As a consequence, they will lose coverage, which could limit an injured victim from obtaining damages after an accident caused by an uninsured driver.
The only option that drivers in Texas have to defend against potential damages because of an uninsured driver is through a personal uninsured policy with an insurance provider. If you’ve been in an accident with an uninsured driver in Texas, it’s strongly encouraged that you contact a trusted car accident lawyer for the best options to move forward with your case.
