When To Hire A Personal Injury Lawyer?

Question: Can I hire a personal injury lawyer right away after an accident?

Answer: In a word, yes. And this is doubly true if your injuries are serious and are affecting your ability to work.

The time immediately after an accident can be extremely confusing and stressful for victims. A knowledgeable and experienced attorney can help minimize that stress by giving you information in an easy to understand manner. 

Attorneys who are experienced and specialize in personal injury can guide you and assist you with everything from filing an insurance claim to, if necessary, filing suit so that you can maximize the amount you receive for your injuries. Experienced attorneys can also advise you about the following:

  • keeping the other driver’s insurance company from contacting you repeatedly so that you can focus on your health and well-being. 
  • ensure that you receive all of the necessary medical care and attention you may need, and help you gather evidence and build your case.
  • educate you on your rights as an injured worker or refer you to an employment rights attorney, which is really important if your injuries are affecting your ability to work and earn a living. 

It’s best not to delay in contacting a personal injury attorney.
