If you are injured and want to pursue a lawsuit, a good first step is consulting with a personal injury attorney. Your priority should be your health and getting the medical treatment you need. But don’t wait too long to seek legal advice, because there are certain things you can do to strengthen your case. For example, it’s often important to take pictures and have witnesses interviewed. Other times we need to get a court order to preserve evidence. Also, there are deadlines for filing lawsuits, and if you miss the deadline, your case can be barred forever. Each state has different rules on this, which is why we will connect you with an experienced attorney in your area.
Personal injury lawsuits are defended by insurance companies, which means that you won’t necessarily be dealing with the person who rear-ended you, or the owner of the property where you slipped and fell. When going up against an insurance company, it’s especially important to have an experienced attorney looking out for you.
