When should I hire a lawyer if I think I have a personal injury claim?

Timing is everything in life, and that goes for choosing a personal injury lawyer.  If you have been involved in a car accident or a truck accident, there are a few factors that should play into your decision making process.  How serious was the accident? Was I injured? Is there significant property damage?  If it was a major accident with personal injuries than I would recommend hiring a Boston Personal Injury Lawyer immediately.  If the accident was minor with no personal injuries, there may not be a need for an attorney.  While every case is different, it is generally a good rule of thumb to contact an injury lawyer to see if it makes sense for your accident case. 

If you decide that you are going to hire a lawyer, then you should hire a lawyer as soon as possible. It is much easier to preserve critical information and evidence with the help of an attorney. Insurance companies might start contacting you shortly after the accident and asking you questions designed to harm your chances of recovery. They might also mail you various documents and ask you to sign them. Having an attorney who can handle questions and advances from the other person’s insurance company in these early stages can be vital to protecting your right to compensation. Additionally, hiring an attorney right away is beneficial because the insurance company may try to trick you into settling quickly for a low and unfair amount. An attorney, with the help of medical professionals and experts, will be able to assess the true nature and extent of your injuries and make sure that you get all of the compensation to which you are entitled.
