Keeping our Clients Safe and Informed During the Pandemic

Posted on

The health and safety of our clients, our staff members and our community remain our primary concerns, now and always.

The COVID-19 pandemic requires an abundance of caution. For that reason, our offices are still closed, but all lines of communication are open.

While it’s not exactly “business as usual,” these days, we are still committed to serving our clients with the same level of care and commitment we’ve always had. We’re just doing things differently these days.

The majority of our attorneys, paralegals and other employees are working from home, actively working on our clients’ cases, meeting with them and conducting hearings virtually to ensure that the pandemic does not result in delays of justice, benefits or important medical treatment. Those whose jobs require them to come into the office are practicing social distancing and safety measures.

We are available for phone consultations, video chats, and email. We utilize cloud-based systems to protect your privacy so we can still work on your cases while protecting everyone’s health.

To our current clients, rest assured that every aspect of your case is continuing without interruption.

Everything We Could Do Before, We Can Do Now.

We’ll just do it all electronically. This includes:

  • Talking or video conferencing with your attorney and paralegal
  • Sending and signing documents through DocuSign
  • Communicating with your doctors and insurance company
  • Attending mediations and hearings via “live” teleconference

Another thing I should mention: We are immediately putting all client checks into trust so that expenses can be collected and checks issued to client and mailed out via priority mail. This means our clients will get their money in a timely manner without having to come to our office.

To new and potential clients, if you’ve been injured, don’t wait to get help. Even with COVID-19 precautions in place, we can immediately evaluate your case and make plans to get you the compensation you deserve. We’re fully open for business even though our offices are temporarily closed to the public. We look forward to meeting you by phone call, video conference or email.

Keeping You Informed

We’re also working hard to keep you informed about changes in the law and governmental procedures that could affect your injury case.

Let’s Stay in Touch

Working together, we’ll all get through this time of challenges. If you have any questions about your case, or would like to know more about our firm, please give us a call. Meanwhile, stay safe.

Dan Deuterman,

President and Attorney
