If you were injured in a car accident, work accident, or slip-and-fall accident, you should absolutely speak with an experienced personal injury attorney. Hiring an attorney is the only way to ensure that your rights are really being protected and that any valuable evidence is preserved. Remember, insurance companies only look out for themselves.
Insurance companies act with only their own best interests in mind. The moment an accident is reported to an insurance company, a team of multiple people starts investigating the claim to determine both liability and financial exposure. This is why accident victims get so many phone calls from insurance companies so soon after getting hurt: the insurance companies are trying to figure out as quickly as possible the least amount of money they can pay to make the claim disappear.
If you were hurt in an accident, you need to (1) seek out medical care, and (2) preserve any evidence that will help your claim. This is where having an attorney working for you is crucial. Your attorney will be able to file the necessary paperwork to locate any evidence for your claim, and prevent key pieces of evidence from getting lost or destroyed. Remember, while you’re at the doctor’s office the day after your accident, the insurance company is already working against you.
