COVID-19 Pandemic

Hastings, Cohan & Walsh, LLP is taking a very proactive approach to the representation of its clients during the coronavirus pandemic. Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont extended his executive order to May 20, 2020, that states that all nonessential workers are to work from home. Law firms in Connecticut are deemed to be essential workers so we are here working for you. We understand the need to protect our team members and to look out for the best interest of our clients. We are in the office working. We are not seeing clients in our office but rather are arranging for alternative methods of communication and virtual meetings. We are actively involved in social distancing and are very diligent in making sure our offices are constantly disinfected. We know how vital it is that we continue to provide you with the high level of legal services that you have come to expect and rely upon.

Your case is important and is not being placed on hold. We are continuing to request medical records, we are continuing to communicate with our clients, we are continuing to speak with the insurance adjusters and we are taking very proactive steps to move our clients' cases along. As I am sure you are aware, this pandemic has resulted in the closure of many courthouses across the state of Connecticut. The Governor has also extended the statute of limitations dates during this very difficult time. Our ability to get cases mediated or arbitrated has also been placed on hold given the current state of affairs.

We want you to know that we are prepared to handle your case and to move things forward. We are here to answer your questions and provide you with suggestions on what you should be doing to assist us in moving your case forward. We understand how stressful this entire situation is for you right now. We understand that you were previously suffering before this pandemic and now everything appears to be placed on hold but we want you to know that we are moving things forward on our end. We understand that there are great disruptions but we have prepared for this situation and are addressing how we actively manage your cases.

If you have been injured in some type of an accident, we want you to know that we are also here to assist you. We can arrange for a virtual interview where you can tell us about your case and we can provide you with information and suggestions on what you need to do to protect yourself. We are also happy to provide you with a package, of free information, which would include two of the books which we have written that tell you what to do and what not to do, how to get better medical care, how to get better quicker, how to develop your claim for lost wages, and how you can assist us in getting more money for your case.

If you need to get in touch with us, please visit our website so you can call or email us. We are taking telephone calls, we are speaking with a great number of individuals, we are reading our emails, we are responding to those emails and we are here to assist you during this very difficult time. Please reach out to us with any problems or questions and we will be happy to assist you.

Thank you and above all be safe!
