There is no right or wrong answer to the age-old question of when to call an attorney after you have been injured. You can call an attorney to discuss your case and/or represent you within a matter of hours, weeks or months. You can even just call an attorney to ask them a question about your accident. There’s no personal injury attorney that I know of who charges a fee to answer legal questions. In fact, the majority of personal injury attorneys work on a contingency fee basis so they know they will only get paid if they get a client a settlement.
Some common advice I frequently share with accident victims is to always take pictures of both vehicles at the scene of the accident whenever possible. Secondly, if an insurance adjuster is calling you about an accident an attorney can tell you what to say or not to say based on the facts of your case. Also depending on the circumstances of your case, an attorney might be able to advise you on when you should go to the doctor and what doctor you should go to.
