When Should I Contact a Lawyer After a Car Accident?
After a car accident, both your insurance company and the other party’s insurance company will begin collecting information about the crash. Part of their investigation may include an interview with all who were involved in this crash. Making a misstatement or providing information that may be damaging to your recovery after an accident can harm the strength of a personal injury suit.
It’s recommended that a car accident victim or the victim’s family contact an attorney as soon as possible after a crash to help facilitate discussions with the insurance company. A serious accident will often require substantial evidence collection in an effort to prove liability.
Relying on experienced attorneys to assist in the evidence collection and investigation may be the difference between obtaining necessary compensation for medical bills and having to foot the bills without assistance from the at-fault party.
