The entire nation has been rattled by the spread of the coronavirus COVID-19 as the pandemic has forced states to respond with changes in how governance is run. These changes have affected everyone as businesses, workers, and even attorneys have been compelled to work through stricter guidelines in attempt to reduce the amount of infected individuals and limit the overall exposure to the novel disease. Even though California personal injury attorneys have been forced to work from home and maintain social distancing, it’s important they continue to stay hard at work for their clients.

Adapting to these new measures has not been an easy task. On March 19, 2020, California Governor Gavin Newsom issued a Stay at Home Order asking residents to remain home unless they have been deemed an essential employee (government officials, healthcare workers, food industry employees, etc.) or to acquire essential items for their homes and families. For the vast majority of people, continuing to travel to work is not an option while the state fights off this virus.
