Courthouses throughout California have largely closed their doors to the general public, only allowing essential workers in. Though the wheels of justice often move slowly, the encompassing pandemic has largely grind-ed them to a halt. Unfortunately, this has created delays for legal proceedings and can prove to be harmful for personal injury cases which are often time sensitive and rely on a trial date. Courts are allowing video conferencing under limited circumstances, so attorneys should remain in contact with their respective judges and courts to see if they are willing to allow such an alternative.
