When you’re faced with a personal injury situation, having legal counsel on your side – someone with substantial resources and knowledge of proceedings and how to effectively fight for you against other entities – is an indispensable tool to assist you in getting what you deserve.
The question is… when is it time to pick up the phone and call a qualified attorney about your case? The answer can vary depending on the situation you’re in, so what we’d like to do is give you a few clues that you should look for either immediately following an incident or later down the road.
Insurance Company Isn’t Cooperating
In many instances, dealing with an insurance company is incredibly stressful, especially when you realize that they’re not fulfilling your needs. If you’re being ignored or you get the sense that you’re simply not important to them, then you shouldn’t hesitate to call an attorney who will deal with the insurance company for you.
Claim Has Been Denied or May Be Denied
Many people forget that an insurance company is a business, and that means if they can find a reason to deny your claim, they absolutely will. If your claim has been denied or your insurance company has given you reason to believe that it will be denied, it’s important that you enlist the assistance of attorney right away so that you can receive fair compensation for your injuries in a reasonable amount of time.
You Have Experienced a Severe Injury
If your accident caused a severe injury to occur, this isn’t the time for you to go through the stress and hassle of doing everything yourself. Reach out to a qualified attorney who specializes in personal injury cases as soon as you possibly can so that you can more quickly get on the road to recovery.
Liability Has Been Called into Question
The success of every lawsuit, and especially the amount of damages that a person may be entitled to receive, is always connected to liability issues. This makes many cases very complicated in nature, because it may not be immediately obvious who is at fault. Qualified attorneys who deal with liability on a daily basis can help cut through the fat and get straight to the meat of the issue.
You Don’t Have the Time to Focus on the Case
Lawsuits can take up a large portion of a person’s time. Even if you believe the case is going to be cut-and-dry, there are multiple factors involved that will require your attention. Once you’ve realized that a lawsuit is going to take up a good portion of your time, especially when it’s time that you cannot afford, then seeking out the advice of an attorney becomes the best option.
Time Has Become a Factor in the Case
Every lawsuit has a ticking clock on it. The sooner that you act, the stronger your case may be. If you find that time has become a factor for any reason, then you absolutely should not hesitate to contact legal counsel so that you don’t miss any deadlines or opportunities.
