Why It Is Important to Contact an Attorney as Soon as Possible after an Accident

If you or a loved one has been injured in an accident and you intend to make a claim to recover money for the injuries and losses, you should contact us immediately to maximize your compensation and minimize the delay, frustration and confusion that you may experience if you make an injury claim.

Do Not Delay

Delay can hurt your case. As time passes, it becomes more difficult to gather important evidence, and some evidence can be lost forever. It is also harder to find and interview witnesses who may move or forget details of your accident.

Delay can cause you to lose valuable rights. 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.

Delay or guessing can cause anxiety. Worrying about your case can cost you more than just a good night’s sleep. And, delay can cost you thousands of dollars. Since waiting can cause the case to be dismissed or hurt the chances of getting the best recovery, seek our help as soon after an accident as possible.
