Can I File A Claim without A Personal Injury Lawyer?
Technically, nothing stops you from independently filing a personal injury claim; however, it’s not recommended. Whether you’re filing an injury claim against a defendant or an insurance company, they will almost always have legal expertise on their side. When choosing to represent yourself, you are putting yourself up against a team of experts with years of experience in personal injury law. While you may be taking all the correct steps to file a claim, personal injury lawyers understand the legal aspects and can build a stronger case against you. Filing a claim may seem like an easy process, but in reality, it’s much more complicated than that. Gathering documents, talking to witnesses and preserving evidence is a lengthy and complex process.
Being a victim of a car accident, you don’t need to be burdened with the responsibility of fighting for your right as well as looking after your physical and mental well-being. Hiring a team of experienced personal injury lawyers will help you navigate your case and ensure that you receive your rightful compensation.
When’s the Right Time To Call a Personal Injury Lawyer?
As soon as you possibly can.
Once you have sought out medical attention and received the medical help you need, you should seek legal advice immediately. Car accidents can greatly impact the victim’s life and cause short-term and long-term mobility issues. It’s very difficult for a car accident victim to focus on their road to recovery while trying to fight for their legal right. Contacting an experienced personal injury lawyer as soon as possible will guarantee that your accident is thoroughly documented from the beginning. To ensure fair compensation, you must include every detail, no matter how “minor” it may be.
