Personal Injury Law – How Long Can You Wait to Get Legal Help

Too often we have to turn away potential personal injury clients because they called too late. Before their case could even get started, it was shut down. Leaving them with injuries and losses that will never be compensated.

In my experience, people don’t contact an injury lawyer soon after an accident for different reasons. Some believe their injury is minor or temporary, and will just go away. Others think the insurance adjuster when he says he will be fair. And some others want to avoid an cost of a lawyer by handling the claim themselves.

Honestly, there are personal injury cases where a lawyer won’t be all that much of a benefit. We pride ourselves on the fact that we’re honest when there isn’t much value we can bring to a case and they would be better off handling the matter on their own.

But there are many other cases where people wait too long to contact a lawyer (or don’t contact one ever) and make serious errors that hurt their case or don’t collect the information and evidence needed to prove their case. And, even worse, some wait past the deadline for taking legal action (the statute of limitations) or call a lawyer so late that it’s impossible to take on the case.

Here’s my advice: if you have been injured because of someone else’s actions and you believe that person (or business) is at fault, call an experienced personal injury lawyer for a free consultation. Obviously, we would prefer that you call us, but at at least call someone with the knowledge and skills to evaluate your case and advise you of your rights. Find more information here @
