Step #1

Take time to consider your injuries.

Many peo­ple tell me…“I did­n’t feel any pain imme­di­ate­ly fol­low­ing the acci­dent.

This is not a problem…Why?

You don’t always feel stiff­ness, pain or dis­com­fort imme­di­ate­ly fol­low­ing an acci­dent. It often takes hours, days or weeks before you start to real­ize that some­thing is not right.

So take the time now to think if you are feel­ing dif­fer­ent­ly since the acci­dent.

Step #2

Hire a lawyer who concentrates on personal injury cases.

Why is this impor­tant?

  • Lawyers who focus on a par­tic­u­lar area of law have a pas­sion for what they do and per­form their work with enthu­si­asm. This is a recipe for a suc­cess­ful set­tle­ment.
  • These lawyers under­stand how to com­mu­ni­cate with the insur­ance com­pa­nies, fel­low lawyers and doc­tors who know and respect them as pro­fes­sion­als who real­ly know what they are doing.
  • Lawyers who con­cen­trate in per­son­al injury cas­es have the time and desire to learn more about this area of law. This can include tak­ing con­tin­u­ing legal edu­ca­tion class­es to keep up with changes in the law and to become bet­ter and more effi­cient at what they do.
  • A lawyer that con­cen­trates in per­son­al injury law has more focused expe­ri­ence and can often set­tle your case with­out the need to go to court.

Step #3

Never delay in hiring a personal injury lawyer.

What’s the hur­ry?…

Con­sid­er the fol­low­ing:

  • The police report may con­tain mis­takes that need to be cor­rect­ed imme­di­ate­ly.
  • Crit­i­cal wit­ness­es may be hard to find lat­er.
  • Pho­tos of the acci­dent scene and your injuries need to be tak­en.
  • You need the prop­er med­ical treat­ment in order to doc­u­ment your injuries.
  • You start to lose cred­i­bil­i­ty when the insur­ance com­pa­ny can ask “Why did you wait so long?”
  • If you wait too long, you can seri­ous­ly impact the amount of your set­tle­ment.
