When Should I Contact an Attorney after a Car Accident?

The answer is immediately. Now.

The reasons are many. Let’s start with the obvious: You don’t know what you don’t know.  When there is a problem with my car, I take it to my auto mechanic because I trust that he knows how to fix the problem.  When you suffer a personal injury after a car accident, you call the best car accident lawyer available, because we know how to “fix” your problems, namely many of the legal problems that you do not even know that you have yet!

For example, there is important evidence to gather and preserve.  The failure to do so will weaken your case even when you are not at fault for the crash.

Further, there are numerous forms and letters that should be written and completed in the days after a crash. Why? To ensure you do not miss deadlines and to ensure that your bills and treatment goes smoothly.

Also, there are various time limits depending on the case and whether the car accident personal injury claim occurred in Rhode Island or Massachusetts or another state.

While you may be reading about this three year deadline and think you have time to think about filing a claim – it would be a mistake on your case. Your attorney will be able to handle everything for your case, and ensure that all of the deadlines are complied with.
