When should I get a lawyer after a car accident?

Have you ever heard the expression, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure?” In no context is this saying more true than in the context of an injury case. Obtaining a lawyer as soon as you can after a car accident, especially if your injuries turn out to be serious, will go far toward protecting your legal rights at the outset. This is always preferable to trying to restore them after they have already been violated. If your own insurance company or the other driver’s insurance company is telling you that you should work directly with them or seem in a hurry to cut you a check, there’s a reason why. The insurance company stands to profit from unsuspecting car accident victims without personal injury lawyers, by sweet talking them into taking a quick buck before the extent of their injuries becomes clear. Many such insurance adjusters are not above taking advantage and setting traps for the unwary. This is how many insurance companies, especially those with notoriously low premium rates, can keep profit margins high. Don’t fall for it. Follow the advice of previous generations instead and spend an ounce of prevention by calling a car accident lawyer sooner rather than later.
