Error 500 - Internal Server Error when calling getAccount() using alpaca-py

I keep running into this issue during the open of the market several times each week. I make a call to:

account = trading_client.get_account()

Any thoughts as to why the account information cannot be retrieved? Is there a fix?

Traceback (most recent call last):
