I keep seeing lawyer websites telling me to contact an attorney ASAP after my car accident. What's the big rush?

We urge you to at least consult with an attorney as soon as possible after a car wreck or any other kind of accident for some very good reasons. Here are some things to consider:
  • Without knowing any better, you may say or do something that could compromise your case. Say bye-bye to a good settlement if you say or do the wrong thing! A skilled auto accident attorney will help you avoid making any mistakes.
    Depending on your situation there may be a time limit for when you can take legal action. If you don't act promptly, you could lose your right to sue.
    The insurance company adjuster you'll deal with is well trained to take advantage of your ignorance about the insurance process and your legal rights. They'll do what they can to get you to say or do something that will prevent you from getting the compensation you deserve.

Most attorneys will review your case for no cost or obligation, so please don't hesitate to contact a few immediately. What you learn may save you some serious headaches down the road.
