When should I contact an attorney about my accident/injury?
After suffering an injury at the hands of another person, an unfortunately common mistake that accident victims make is waiting too long to contact an attorney. In the initial days and weeks after an accident, there is an enormous amount of valuable information and evidence that needs to be collected in order to prepare an effective and convincing personal injury case.
Additionally, in some cases, individuals wait too long to file their case, extending the statute of limitations, and making it impossible for them to file a personal injury lawsuit against the party responsible for their needless suffering. As such, it is highly encouraged that accident victims contact an attorney as soon as possible following an injury so that they can ensure their legal rights are protected, and they do not miss out on the opportunity to file a claim.
