Injured? We’re Still Here to Help during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Posted in Car Accident on April 20, 2020

The coronavirus has resulted in an unprecedented disruption of society and day-to-day life for Tennesseans, Americans, and the world at large. Schools and many businesses are closed, and terms like “social distancing” and “stay-at-home order” are becoming part of our everyday vocabulary.

Although fewer people are on Nashville’s streets than normal, accidents can and still do occur during the COVID-19 lockdown. And we want all injured victims throughout Middle Tennessee to know that we’re still available to help. Accidents and injuries never take a day off, and neither do their consequences, such as expensive medical bills and lost wages.

Our Nashville car accident attorneys are working hard to fight for clients’ rights to the money they deserve, and we’re finding ways to continue to offer our services in ways that are most convenient for injured victims. We know that many people are hesitant to go to public places or be around other people—some are even scared to leave their homes. We understand those concerns, and that’s why we’re offering a variety of ways for victims to tell us about their injuries.

Here’s How We Can Assist You during this Uncertain Time

Although we’re in the midst of a global pandemic, our dedication to getting our clients maximum compensation for their medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering hasn’t changed. We’re just as passionate about defending the rights of innocent victims as ever, and that includes making ourselves available to speak with them in more ways than ever.

If you or someone you love was hurt in a car accident or any other type of accident caused by someone else’s negligence, here’s how we can help:

  • Telephone consultation—Many of our initial consultations with clients occur over the phone, and that hasn’t changed during the pandemic. If you were recently injured, feel free to call us anytime, day or night. We want to know what you’re going through, even if you’re unable to visit our office in person.
  • Email/website submission—You can also get in touch with us via email using our website consultation form. Just tell us your name, email address, phone number, and a message describing what happened to you, and we’ll get in touch with you right away.
  • Virtual consultation—Many businesses are conducting meetings via online virtual consultations, and our firm is no different! If you have a smartphone, laptop, tablet, or other device with a webcam and microphone, we can connect with you and discuss your injury, your case, and what you should do moving forward.

Worried about how COVID-19 will affect our work on your claim, whether we’ve already started work on it or you’re thinking about pursuing compensation after an injury? We understand this common concern, and we want you to know that the pandemic hasn’t slowed our progress on getting compensation for our clients.

For example, we can utilize e-doc signatures for important papers and documents rather than needing you to come into the office. Many of the same tasks we complete while preparing, building, and presenting cases for clients can be done electronically or over the phone, which means greater convenience for you and your loved ones with no interruptions, delays, or reductions in quality of client service.

Don’t Let COVID-19 Dissuade You from Pursuing the Money You Deserve

At Matt Hardin Law, we know that many injured victims are hesitant to contact lawyers after accidents. They may believe they don’t have cases, or they don’t want to inconvenience others. Those concerns, plus the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, may make you even more reluctant to pick up the phone or submit your information on our website.

But it’s important to remember that Tennessee has one of the shortest statutes of limitations on injury claims in the U.S.—just one year from the date the injury occurred. Once that date passes, you can’t file a claim. Extensions are allowed in some cases, but not all injuries qualify. That’s why it’s essential to get in touch with our firm right away, so you can get peace of mind knowing that your claim will be valid regardless of what happens.

Don’t miss out on the money you deserve after an accident or injury that wasn’t your fault. We’re here to help you in any way we can, while being as accommodating as possible during this uncertain and stressful time. Contact us today for a free consultation of your claim. As always, we’re here to help, and we’re here to make your life easier.
