There are many benefits to hiring a personal injury attorney as early as possible if you've been injured. For one thing, insurance companies are likely to start asking questions immediately. If you have an attorney, the attorney will often handle those questions for you, which not only takes the pressure off of you but also ensures that you don't accidentally say something to the insurance company or the police, if they're involved, that could later hurt your case. Also, some insurance companies try to pressure people into settlements as soon as they get the claim. If you don't have an attorney yet, you may be persuaded into settling your claim for less than it's worth. If you've been injured or there may be a dispute about who was at fault for your accident, contact an attorney as soon as possible to make sure your rights are protected.
