When Do I Need a Personal Injury Lawyer?

by James Holliday, posted in Florida Auto Accident, Personal Injuries in the News

Any time that someone is hurt in any type of accident, they need a personal injury attorney to look out for their interests. The insurance companies have armies of lawyers and adjusters that are working on the spot. Insurance companies are actually allowed in Florida to send investigators to the crash site and take statements immediately from everybody involved. Lawyers are not permitted by law to contact potential clients directly, so you’re already at a huge disadvantage from day one when the clock starts running.

I highly recommend calling a personal injury lawyer right away to have someone protecting you and documenting what will be very important down the road. I always believe that word of mouth referrals is still the best way to get a true hard working lawyer — someone that’s going to help you. The question is often asked, how do I make a personal injury claim? That part is easy, you contact a personal injury lawyer, someone that handles exclusively personal injury matters; a lot of times people will go to a lawyer and maybe they’ll do bankruptcies, they’ll do a little criminal law, maybe family law and some personal injury. My recommendation personally in my opinion is going to someone that all they do is personal injury all day long.
