Hiring an attorney to handle your personal injury is a time sensitive matter. Insurance company adjusters specifically look at when you hired your New York personal injury attorney to determine what your intentions are in filing a claim.
Don’t Hire Too Early and Don’t Hire Too Late
Insurance adjusters may become suspicious if you hire an attorney either too early or too late in the game. For example, if you hired an attorney within hours or the same day of your accident, it may show that you are too eager to file a claim. The red flag to the adjuster is how can you file a claim before your pain has even surfaced. Or if you call from the hospital, it may also raise a red flag that you only have monetary intentions.
Likewise, if you wait too long before you hire a New York personal injury attorney, the insurance adjuster may become suspicious that there may be something wrong with your case that caused you to hire an attorney so late in the process.
Although there is no magical time as to when you should hire an attorney, you need to be very careful in your timing. The best advice is not to wait too long and not to hire too early.
