Anyone who has been injured in a car accident, or another type of accident for which someone else was at fault, should contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible after their accident. All too often we find that people wait for days, weeks, or months and this seriously impacts their case. Keep reading to discover two of the reasons it is so important to call us sooner rather than later, then contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at 800-333-0000 for a free legal consultation.
- Evidence Can Disappear Quickly
- You Don’t Want to Give the Insurance Company Time to Build a Case Against You
First and foremost, you need to remember that essential evidence that can prove your case can be lost quickly and easily. We must be able to prove that you were not at fault and that someone else was. In order to do that, we want access to as much evidence as possible, such as scene debris, witness statements, and traffic camera footage.
The sooner you call us, the better our chances will be to obtain this evidence. Even if we do obtain it, the insurance adjuster may argue that there is no way to know it was from this accident. For example, if we find paint matching the other car on your vehicle, but we do not obtain that evidence for six months after the accident, the insurance company may argue that it was not from their client.
When it comes to eyewitnesses, their memories will begin to become less clear over time. It is much easier for an insurance company to poke holes in eyewitness testimony if the witness is trying to testify about something that happened a year ago versus two days ago.
The last thing you want is to give the insurance company time to build a case against you. They do not want to pay large settlements – even when they are warranted. This is why they have teams of adjusters who are look for ways to reduce or deny your claim. The sooner you start working with the attorney, the less time the insurance company will have to find a way to reduce or deny your valid claim.
