When to Contact a Lawyer After a Car Accident

If you’ve recently been in a car accident, it’s common to wonder when the best time to contact an attorney may be. You might be thinking that waiting until you’ve recovered from your injuries makes the most sense because then you’ll have your medical expenses laid out. However, it’s never too early to appoint legal help for your car accident lawsuit.

When you hire The Law Offices of Casey D. Shomo, a West Palm Beach car crash attorney can assist you with your injury claim as soon as the wreck happens. In fact, the sooner you contact our firm, the more time we’ll have to gather proper evidence and prove negligence in your case. When you get a head start on filing a claim, you’ll have a better chance of maximizing your settlement.

Call a Lawyer As Soon As Possible

The negligent party in your case will likely notify their insurance company of the car wreck immediately. Their insurance company may then reach out to you for a statement. All of this can happen quickly. Once you give a statement to the insurance company, they can begin building a strong defense against you.

The insurance company of the at-fault party will ultimately want you to accept the lowest possible settlement offer, but you deserve proper compensation for the injuries you’ve suffered. You should always have an attorney on your side before giving a statement, that way, someone will be in your corner to advise you on what moves to make as your case moves forward.
