After an accident or injury of any kind, the most important task is to get high-quality and complete medical care. As soon as your immediate medical needs are taken care of, and before you sign any agreement with an insurance company, you should talk to an experienced personal injury lawyer to discuss your options for recovering compensation.
It is important to hire someone who will take the time to give you the personal attention and skilled representation you deserve.
I provide personal attention to every client who hires me. I respond quickly to clients' questions and concerns, and personally handle every case because I understand how important it is to have someone who will stand up for your rights.
if you have an injury claim, don't delay
If you've been in a car, slip and fall or other accident and intend to make a claim, there are several reasons why you must consult an attorney as soon as possible. One reason is there are time limits (called "statutes of limitations") for making claims. If you wait too long and the statute of limitations passes, you will be prevented from bringing your claim. Courts strictly follow statutes of limitations. Recently, a woman hurt in a car accident made a claim one day after the statute of limitations passed. Even though this was a minor violation, a court dismissed her claim and she could not recover money for her injuries. Another reason why you should seek legal help immediately is that delay can hurt your case. As time passes, it becomes harder to gather evidence and to find and interview witnesses, who may move or forget the details of your accident. Since waiting can cause your claim to be dismissed or hurt your chances of getting the maximum recovery, seek legal help as soon after an accident as possible.
the law firm you choose makes a difference...
