You’ve probably seen or heard advertisements saying that it’s important to contact a personal injury attorney at the time of an accident. You also might have thought that this was just another hard sell tactic.
Not necessarily. There are solid reasons to take this immediate action.
Say you’ve been in an accident of some kind–– vehicular crash or perhaps a fall–– and you have been injured severely. It’s clear in this scenario that you will need the services of an experienced personal injury attorney as there will likely be substantial medical expense and rehabilitation costs.
Then there are those situations in which the motivations to call an attorney are not so clear. Perhaps your injuries are less severe. Or, perhaps there are no immediate manifestations of injury. Should you really bother to contact an attorney?
Yes. Here’s why.
Lastly, there are those who think that they will just make a claim themselves and save the attorney’s cut. This is fool’s gold. Unless you are an insurance professional, most people do not have the experience and/or specific knowledge needed to successfully negotiate with insurance companies and review/assess medical evidence.
