After an accident, the quicker you call an attorney, the better. Here are 3 reasons why you should not wait to pick up the phone.
1. Preserving the accident scene. By calling an attorney right away, law firm staff can be sent to the accident scene to immediately start working on your case. Your attorney and other legal staff will get an accurate picture of the scene, helping to preserve and maintain evidence. Preserving evidence that could be lost by waiting too long may help your case. It could give you a better chance of receiving a larger dollar amount for your accident.
2. Negotiating with the insurance company. Insurance companies will try to get you to admit fault, quickly sign papers and settle for as little money as possible. From the moment you hire an attorney, you will not have to deal with the other driver’s insurance company. Your attorney will be able to handle all negotiations and will likely be able to get you a much higher settlement amount than if you tried to handle it alone.
3. Focusing on your recovery. Your attorney will immediately start working to handle your property damage claims, medical bills and other expenses. You will be able to fully focus on your recovery from injuries or trauma without having to worry about everything else.
Navigating through everything after an accident can be difficult and overwhelming.
