It is understandable to be worried about COVID-19 and how it might impact your life, career and family.
Despite restrictions, New Hampshire is open for business and the courts are slowly dealing with a backlog of cases that have built up over the past two years. And, of course despite lockdowns and “work from home” options, personal injury cases still occur.
If you have a personal injury accident, you should still seek out professional advice, despite some backlogs in the courts. Personal injury claims might take longer to process but the statute of limitations on when to file a lawsuit are still in effect so if you think you have a valid claim don’t delay in talking with a personal injury laywer.
If you wait to file a claim due to COVID-19, you very well may lose your right to take legal action and recover compensation.
Because of hardships, insurance companies are fighting as hard as ever to lowball lawsuits, and hence hiring a New Hampshire personal injury lawyer is more important than ever.
How The Coronavirus Could Affect Your Personal Injury Claim in New Hampshire
Due to initial court and governmental shuts downs there are personal injury court issues that we were not facing prior to the pandemic. These include:
- Increased pressure to settle your case
- Court delays
- Unavailable or inconvenient medical treatment for injuries

That’s why you need a proven personal injury lawyer in New Hampshire that will fight for your rights.
Your attorney will pressure the insurance companies to get them to pay you what you deserve in a timely manner.
