When Should You Contact a Car Accident Attorney? As soon as possible!
As you attempt to heal from your injuries, you are also dealing with a loss of income, escalating medical bills, car repairs, and mountains of paperwork. You need help now.
Don’t listen to all the advice about taking your time to hire a car accident injury lawyer. Yes, you need to find a highly qualified legal professional, but don’t lose sight of the fact that most of the physical evidence at the scene of a car wreck is gone within a matter of hours.
Within a few days skid marks, tire marks, and other gauges on the roadway also disappear. This is all evidence that can make or break a legal case. The sooner you retain the services of a law firm, the better chance you have of receiving a just damage settlement.
A law firm will have the resources and experts on hand to immediately begin to preserve evidence and to build a case on your behalf. The firm acts as your personal accident investigation team, locating and interviewing eyewitnesses, and collecting other valuable information.
If it is suspected that your accident was caused by a defective automobile or automotive product, your attorney will ensure that the vehicle itself is preserved after the auto crash. If the car is lost, so is your primary piece of evidence. In order to fully investigate the particulars of your accident, the car will need to be examined and analyzed. This precaution alone could increase your potential compensation.
