When you’re injured in a motor vehicle accident, the last thing on your mind is what might happen at a trial months down the road. Many victims are surprised to find out that it can be very difficult to get the other party’s insurance company to pay out, and many times large trucking companies have their own team of lawyers who will try to get you to settle a case out of court or even try to put the blame on you.
This is one reason why it’s important to begin discussing your rights and options as soon as possible after an injury-causing accident. There are limitations on how long you can wait before taking legal recourse against the at-fault party, and generally, the sooner you can start the process, the better.
There are many different aspects of a personal injury case, from calling the police and getting the other party’s insurance information when the accident happens to interviewing witnesses and going over police statements in preparation for the trial. This can be overwhelming when you are dealing with the changes in your personal life after an accident, such as recuperating from injuries and figuring out how to handle a change in finances due to time off work and medical bills.
Talking with a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible after your accident lets you take some of this burden and put it on the attorney’s shoulders.
