Practicing Personal Injury Law in a Pandemic
COVID-19 has wreaked havoc in 2020 and 2021, killing some approximately 3,300 Albertans, 30,000 Canadians and over 5 million men, women and children worldwide to date. The disease rages on, with masking, social distancing, vaccine passports and other public health restrictions expected to continue well into 2022 and perhaps even beyond. On October 1, 2021, the Chief Justices of the Alberta Court of Appeal, Alberta Court of Queen’s Bench and Provincial Court of Alberta signed a notice that effective November 1, 2021 all Court staff must be fully vaccinated to access courtrooms in Alberta courthouses.
While the pandemic has seen reduced automobile traffic (and hence a drop in collisions, injuries and fatalities on Alberta roads) with corresponding windfall insurance industry profits, it remains the case that each day, innocent Albertans are hurt by reckless or impaired drivers and deserve fair financial compensation for their pain and suffering and other losses. Some big firm attorneys and auto insurance adjusters have been “working from home” since March of 2020, but not Mark McCourt, who hasn’t missed a beat -- driving to the office day in and day out as he’s been doing since the ‘90s, battling insurers and doling out truth and justice on behalf of his firm’s injured clients. As you’re well aware, insurance companies don’t have the slightest interest in fairly compensating injured car crash victims unrepresented by competent legal counsel. So if you’ve been injured by a negligent motorist, don’t let the insurance industry revictimize you. Contact our firm, and put the experienced injury law team at McCourt Law Offices to work for you, doing what we do best -- fighting for your right to the full and fair compensation that you deserve.
