How Soon After a Accident Should I Contact a Lawyer?
Is There A Time Limit After a Car Accident to Contact an Auto Accident Lawyer?
As a general rule, you should contact an auto accident lawyer as soon as (1) You have been injured in an accident; (2) you have unanswered questions regarding an automobile accident; (3) An insurance company is not responsive or treating you fairly; or (4) you require medical care and need assistance in getting it.
Is having a lawyer after an accident important?
There are many reasons why hiring a lawyer after a crash is necessary. Having the right lawyer on your side is even more critical. We will help you evaluate your case by considering conditions such as:
- The accident resulted in severe injuries or in wrongful death. Not all injuries sustained in an auto accident are apparent at the time of the crash; many symptoms become more serious with time.
- Were you involved in a hit and run? We can clarify how Uninsured Motorist coverage works.
- It may be unclear as to who was at fault in the accident. Police are seldom present at the time of accidents and you can’t rely on first responders to reconstruct the events of an accident accurately.
Hiring an auto accident lawyer will help you steer clear of legal loopholes. Ignorance of the law is no defense in legal matters, and if not dealt with correctly, you could easily be denied compensation or benefits you would otherwise be entitled to.
There are countless reasons to contact an auto accident lawyer immediately following a car accident. You want a legal team that will work for you, help protect your rights, and seek the compensation you deserve.
Help Dealing with Insurance Companies
According to data from the insurance industry, having expert legal counsel results in settlement amounts that are four times larger than those without counsel. Insurance companies are not offering you the money to be kind; their purpose is to settle quickly so they can save money. Do not let their haste be at your cost.
