When you’ve been injured in an accident of any sort, you’ll likely take care of your health and any injuries first. However, there will be a point in time when you may decide to seek compensation for those injuries and any damages. The onset and continuation of the spread of COVID-19, as well as the administration of the vaccines, has added a new facet of personal injury to the mix.

How a Personal Injury Claim May Be Affected by COVID-19 Restrictions or COVID-19 Vaccine Complications?
In the current uncertainty, it’s normal to wonder how COVID-19 could affect your coronavirus lawsuit. Some things that may affect your case during this time include:
- Delays in Non-Critical Health Care: Because hospitals and urgent care clinics have prioritized care for COVID-19 patients, routine appointments, physical therapy and follow-up appointments may not be as easy to come by.
- Accident-Related Medical Treatment Postponement: After any type of accident, it is imperative a victim seeks proper medical treatment. This will assist a personal injury attorney in evaluating the case, but unfortunately victims are hesitant to see a medical professional due to fear of the virus.
- Settlement Pressure: COVID-19 has uprooted quite a bit of financial stability overall, which means you may consider the negligent party’s initial settlement offer. However, if you can rely on other means of financial support initially, finding a personal injury attorney in California, Arizona or Nevada can assist in a higher payoff at a later date for a COVID-19 or COVID-19 vaccine injury lawsuit.
- Non-Payment of Insurance Premiums and Settlements: Times are uncertain, which means people are choosing to file bankruptcy or stop paying their insurance premiums. Both of these scenarios can impact a lawsuit and the overall settlement.
- Medical Negligence: Medical negligence can result when a doctor, nurse or other medical professional performs some sort of error or negligent act that results in a patient’s injury. Examples of medical negligence related to COVID-19 can include delayed or missed COVID-19 diagnoses; delayed vaccination, care or testing; failure to follow proper infection control procedures; and failure to note medical contraindications when administering the COVID-19 vaccine.
