IT CAN NEVER BE TOO SOON, BUT IT MAY BE TOO LATE. With personal injury claims, there are specific deadlines to initiate a claim or file a lawsuit, or a victim may lose their legal rights. These deadlines may vary state-by-state.
Regardless of how much time has passed since the accident or injury, you or a family member should consult an attorney immediately to discuss the facts of your accident or injury.
It is important to investigate the facts of your accident or injury as quickly as possible in order to:
Secure evidence, which otherwise could be destroyed or lost.
Take statements of witnesses who could disappear or whose memories could fade.
It may be important to select a responsible family member or a trusted friend to secure legal counsel on behalf of the victim in order to allow the victim to focus on recovery.
If you, a family member, or someone you know has sustained a serious injury and you want to determine whether you have a personal injury claim and/or a workers’ compensation claim, please contact us.
