The Importance of Speaking to a Personal Injury Lawyer Immediately

It’s easy to procrastinate when it comes to speaking to a personal injury lawyer about your accident. You have a lot on your plate, including recovering from your injuries. That’s always going to take priority.

However, while we frequently emphasize the importance of speaking to a personal injury lawyer, you should also understand that it’s important you speak to an attorney as soon as possible.

There are two primary reasons for this:

  • Statutes of limitations: Every state puts a time limit on personal injury claims, usually running between two and three years after the incident that hurt you. If you don’t file your claim before time runs out, you can’t file at all.
  • Investigations: One of the most important things the personal injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm will do for you is investigate your claim. That’s much easier to do when the accident is recent. Memories are fresher and physical evidence is less likely to be lost or degraded.
The first thing you should do after your injury is get medical attention. After that, you shouldn’t hesitate to call the personal injury lawyers at The Cochran Firm.

If you’re the innocent victim of someone else’s negligence or misconduct and you need an experienced personal injury lawyer, please contact The Cochran Firm today for a free consultation.
