Top 3 Reasons You Need to Quickly Contact a Personal Injury Attorney

When you are injured in an accident, it is easy to become overwhelmed. You may not know what to do or to whom to turn. The steps that you take or fail to take may compromise the compensation that you are entitled to for the injuries you have sustained. Furthermore, if you fail to file a claim or initiate a lawsuit within a specific time period mandated under the law, you may be forever barred from obtaining compensation from the liable parties.personal injury consultation with an attorney

Hiring an experienced personal injury attorney in the early stages after an accident is important for a number of reasons. This article discusses a few of these reasons.

1. Early Investigation

If you have been injured in a car accident, early investigation can be critical. Preserving evidence at the scene of the accident by arranging for the skid marks, tire marks and other physical evidence to be photographed and perhaps impounded, can impact your ability to best prove your claim and to obtain the full compensation to which you are entitled.

2. Witnesses

Eyewitnesses are often key in proving who is at fault for the happening of an accident. It is important to obtain their contact information at the scene of the accident. However, it is equally important to immediately contact them and obtain a statement before they move, change phone numbers or get a new email address. Also, t the more time that passes between the happening of the accident and the interview of an eyewitness, the more difficult it may become to contact them and fully protect one’s rights.

3. Dealing With Insurance Adjusters

It generally takes less than 48 hours for an insurance adjuster to contact you after an accident. Insurance adjusters have their own agenda and do not necessarily have your best interest in mind. They often will record statements and may hold you to something you say during the immediate aftermath of an accident which may not necessarily be accurate at the time that the statement is being given.

With an experienced attorney on your side, you can be confident that your personal injury claim is properly handled and that you will obtain the full compensation that you deserve for the injuries you have suffered. A good attorney will help you build your case to its full potential and help you avoid actions that may be detrimental and not reflective of your true claim.
