During this uncertain time, Farris, Riley & Pitt understands that our clients and our community need us now more than ever. While we are fully available to our clients, the health and safety of our team is equally as important. We are taking precautionary measures by following best practices, as outlined by the Jefferson County Health Department, as well as allowing employees with secure remote access to work from their homes. Any employee who is sick understands that they will not be able to return to work until medically cleared. Our main office is still open and operating; however, we have relocated several in-office employees and are encouraging meetings to occur via phone or video conference.
If the time comes to transition all employees to a remote position, we are prepared. To encourage a better work/life balance for our team, many of our employees either currently work or have worked remotely in the past. As such, our clients or anyone who calls for a free case evaluation should not experience any interruptions in our typical operations. We have security measures in place to ensure that all of our clients’ data is protected and will not be compromised regardless of where our employees are operating.
We are also working with the courts, as well as opposing counsel, to arrange court appearances, settlement conferences, and other litigation events remotely whenever possible.
Each day is an adjustment, and our team is dedicated to adapting accordingly in order to progress cases for our current clients as well as take on matters for new clients.
To have a personal injury case, you must have suffered an injury, and that injury had to be at least partially the fault of another. The injury can be physical or non-physical depending upon the case and the basis of the lawsuit. Invasion of privacy, assault, infliction of emotional distress or an attack on your reputation are examples of injuries that are non-physical.
