When Should I Hire An Injury Lawyer Following An Accident?

Many people following a personal event accident understandably are confused.  They have many questions. One question for them may be when to hire a personal injury lawyer? The answer is simple: An attorney should be hired as quickly as possible following the accident.  Here are some reasons why:

An Attorney Provides Peace of Mind

You may be feeling stressed and overwhelmed following your accident. Having legal help on your side can allow you to sleep at night. It can also allow you to focus on other parts of your life, such as receiving medical treatment,  so you are not consumed with the aftermath of the accident.

The Insurance Company Is Contacting You 

Insurance companies may be sending you paperwork. For example, if you had a car accident, you may be receiving paperwork to sign.  By hiring an attorney at the beginning, this important paperwork can be completed by your attorney quickly and correctly.

The Attorney Works On Contingency 

Some people are concerned about the cost of a Boston personal injury or workers compensation lawyer. They may think the attorney gets paid by the hour, and may believe that if they hire a lawyer later in the process, they will save money. This is not true.  Since the attorney gets paid the same amount if they are hired shortly after, or months after the accident, you will get more bang for your buck by hiring the lawyer sooner rather than later.
