Coronavirus Won’t Keep Us from Providing Legal Support
Our hearts go out to all those affected by the novel coronavirus. As we all await news of successful mitigation measures and medical breakthroughs, our team has been doing what we can to slow the spread of this virus through Atlanta. We urge you to join us in abiding by Mayor Bottoms’ “stay at home” order. If by limiting non-essential trips we can help even 1 community member stay safe from this scary infection, we will consider it a job well done.
Our Firm Is Open, Though Our Office Is Closed
Many industries have faced upheaval as the coronavirus has quickly spread throughout the U.S., and the legal field is no different. However, we would like to assure you we are ready to serve and represent you even with the new limitations in effect.
Our firm has made strategic investments in cutting edge technology and connectivity assets, which means we can continue to operate and litigate in a virtual environment. Although we are working remotely, you can still reach us at the same direct phone and email address as always. In addition, we have virtual technology that allows face-to-face communications.
Obviously, we would prefer to see you in person, but in light of the coronavirus, we want to keep everybody safe. We are set up to work remotely for as long as necessary. If and when further changes are made, we will find the best way to continue serving you.
Keep Yourself Safe During Isolation
Though the elderly and those with pre-existing health conditions are more vulnerable, COVID-19 can be a danger to people of any age or health level. You can stay up to date with the latest recommendations on the Georgia Department of Health’s Coronavirus page. By taking common-sense actions like regularly washing our hands, covering our mouths when we cough or sneeze, and staying away from those who are sick, we can all decrease our chances of contracting the novel coronavirus and passing it on to others.
As many more people have turned to walking, jogging, or biking outside—either for exercise or to visit the grocery store or pharmacy—we also suggest brushing up on pedestrian safety tips. Traffic levels may be down, but there are still cars on our roads. Don’t let them catch you unaware. Our top tip for both bikers and pedestrians is to stay alert. Just as drivers shouldn’t be texting while on the road, neither should you.
Other guidelines that can help you stay safe include:
- Avoid walking or biking after dusk, unless you have the proper reflective gear and, for bikers, head and taillights.
- Be careful when crossing roads. Don’t assume that just because you haven’t seen a car in a while, there’s no one coming.
- Walkers should use sidewalks where available, and bikers should use bike lanes or ride in the right lane and follow normal traffic laws.
In our line of work, we have seen many pedestrians and bikers seriously injured after being hit by a vehicle. Especially with our healthcare system so stressed, those who receive severe injuries may be even more at risk than usual.
We’ll Keep You Up to Date
We are still diligently working and following CDC guidelines to reduce our risk of contracting COVID-19. Our firm remains open for business and we will continue to respond to your emails and calls and work on all open cases. Faxes and physical mail are also being received and processed.
If you have any questions about your case or think you may have a claim, please reach out to us at (800) 860-8021. Until we are able to see you again in person, we will make the best of digital communications to keep everyone in the loop. In the meantime, we wish good health to you and your loved ones.
