It’s hard to think of a part of our lives that has not been impacted by COVID-19. From sheltering in place to wearing a mask, we’ve made many adjustments as we work together to make it through this pandemic and get things back to normal.
But even amidst a global pandemic, one thing remains solid – your right to the compensation you deserve when injured by negligence due to another.
The “Need for Speed” Means More Auto Accidents
With the increase of remote working and learning, fewer cars are on the road decreasing traffic incidents. And with social distancing becoming the norm people are less likely to visit their local pub. This has led to a drop in DUIs. So it would seem the streets would be a safer place.
But wide-open roads have given rise to another temptation – the “need for speed”. Police report that during the pandemic there has been an increase in speeding violations. And this has led to some serious auto accidents.
If you are involved in an incident with another vehicle that was speeding, contact us today so we can help you know your rights.
Negligence at the Nursing Home
We hear many stories on the news about COVID-19 outbreaks at nursing homes. In many states, including Georgia, long-term care facilities have been given some protection against certain types of lawsuits related to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, these places are not inoculated from long-standing laws protecting your loved ones from abuse and wrongful death.
It’s always sad to hear about the mistreatment of the elderly from those we have trusted to care for them. Contact us and let us help you decide if you have a case for elderly abuse compensation.
Medical Malpractice During The Pandemic
Much like nursing homes, a patchwork of laws varying from state to state has been enacted protecting medical care providers from some liability related to COVID-19. However, they are immunized from long-standing issues related to medical malpractice.
Don’t wave your rights. Contact us today and let us help you determine if you have a medical malpractice case.
During this time COVID-19, we face many challenges. See the message from Randy Fry, Founder/Owner of Fry | Goehring.
Stay safe everyone!
