I’ve been injured. When Is It Time To Call A Lawyer?

If you’ve been injured in an accident, it’s time to call an attorney.

It is important for personal injuries, medical malpractice, wrongful death, and for those who have been in a serious auto accident to contact a knowledgeable attorney right away.

Clouded in the stress and physical pain of these incidents, people frequently hesitate to contact their lawyer. If your injury could have been avoided, there are a variety of reasons why an attorney should be called, after 9-1-1 and your physician.

A ride in an ambulance isn’t cheap. Neither is physical therapy or any other costs associated with recovery from injury. When somebody else is at fault for your injury, you should not be on the hook financially.

While the insurance company would like nothing more than for you to take a quick settlement and avoid trial, that is often not in your best interest.  You may not even know the extent of your injuries or damages and it would often be short-sighted to accept (or even negotiate) a settlement within a few weeks (or sometimes even months) of the accident.  

Call the attorneys at Eng & Woods after your accident for a free consultation and we will explain the process to you and answer all of your questions so that you are on a more level playing field with the insurance company.

Sometimes litigation is necessary to get you the compensation you deserve and a good attorney will advise you accordingly.

If you have sustained a personal injury, it’s important to contact your lawyer as soon after the incident as possible while your memory of the details is clear. Similarly, your legal team will be able to proactively secure evidence earlier in the process. One must also be aware of their state’s statute of limitations regarding potential lawsuits these vary by type of case.

Sometimes, a fear of cost can deter victims from calling an attorney. Instead, a skilled legal team will ease your stress and explain the process from beginning to end. Eng & Woods provides a free consultation to discuss your case.
