COVID-19 restrictions tightened for the entire state for 4- week period.
On Saturday, Governor Inslee announced a tightening of the restrictions on activities in place to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The new restrictions take effect on midnight tonight, November 16, 2020, with the exception of those placed on restaurants and bars, which take effect on Wednesday. The restrictions are currently set to expire on December 14th.
CW Remains Fully Operational
Causey Wright has remained open and fully operational in a manner that almost matches the current increased restrictions exactly. We have maintained a low number of essential employees and clients/visitors inside the office, with most employees working from home, since the beginning of the pandemic. We have precautions and procedures in place to ensure the safety of anyone in the office. We will make minor adjustments to our plan to adapt as the COVID-19 restrictions tightened require.
All scheduled court proceedings before the Board of Industrial Insurance Appeals and the Superior Courts are held via a remote-access. In many cases, our clients have opted to provide their testimony, whether before the judge or through a deposition, from our office. We have computers, web cameras and a strong wifi signal, and your attorney will be in the office, as well, to help with the process and provide full legal services before, during and after the litigation event.
We will coordinate with each client to meet their needs. For some, the ability to participate in their litigation from home is welcome. Others prefer to be in the office. Either way, we can make it work.
The COVID-19 restrictions tightened, but your case has not stopped. If you have concerns about an upcoming proceeding, or if you need assistance with a workers’ compensation claim, please contact us.
