If you are in the process of seeking damages for your car accident in Pembroke Pines, Florida, you may have many questions about how the coronavirus (COVID-19) might impact your claim. If you are in the process of trying to negotiate an insurance settlement for your recent crash, or if you have a pending court case or court date, you may be wondering how the recent coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic might affect your case or impact the process of settling your claim.

In the wake of all these emergency measures, individuals who may have had car accident cases pending or who have been working with the Law Offices of Oscar Syger on their car accident claim may be wondering what next steps they can take.
