Personal Injuries During the Coronavirus Pandemic

April 6, 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has taken over our country and is currently putting a strain on many companies, especially the health care industry. With the influx of cases and an increased number of people needing emergency help, our hospitals and medical centers are filled with patients. This predicament has caused many people with personal injuries to question whether to go to the emergency room in fear of contracting COVID-19. Unfortunately, personal injuries are going to happen, and we need to know how to deal with the situation in the healthiest way. Avoiding medical help when injured can result in permanent problems or death in severe situations.

What Should I Do If I Am Injured?

Car wrecks, slip and falls, and other threatening injuries occur, even during a national pandemic. If you were injured in an accident, it is important to receive medical care right away to avoid further injury or death. Despite the overflow of COVID-19 patients in hospitals, emergency rooms are still providing emergency care to people who need it. For extra precaution, those who are in a high-risk group should wear a mask and gloves if an emergency room visit is needed, stay six feet away from others while in the hospital, and wash your hands frequently.

If an injured person is highly against going to the hospital due to the Coronavirus, there are other options available. Urgent cares are a great option as they are continuing to treat patients with personal injuries and other medical issues. Most urgent care facilities recommend calling ahead to ensure they can help your situation and prepare a best course of action for your treatment. In addition to urgent care centers, there are many virtual treatment options that have recently become available to patients needing medical help during this time.
