Currently, the NYS Courts Civil Parts are closed for business and have not issued a date when it will reopen. The current cases on the calendar are being adjourned by the Court, which we are monitoring. The Court is barring the filing of any new cases. However, the time to file will be extended once the Courts reopen.
While most depositions (EBTs) are being adjourned, there are some rare instances in which the proceedings have been conducted by videoconferencing services such as Zoom and Skype. We do have the capability to conduct such videoconferences, yet not all of our adversaries or witness have such abilities. If we can move your case forward utilizing videoconference, we will make every effort to make that happen.
IMES or Insurance Company examinations are currently being rescheduled as well. We are monitoring these appointments and advising our clients of the scheduling changes. However, future dates are dependent upon the situation with the pandemic concerns.
Medical treatment is not prohibited, and if you need care you should receive it. That being said, please note that Doctor’s offices may be affected, and we suggest reaching out to your caregiver to verify the status of their facilities. However, if you have any symptoms or have been in contact with anyone who has contracted the Coronavirus, you must follow the state mandated quarantine rules in effect to prevent further spread. See link for specific updated information: https://coronavirus.health.ny.gov/home.
