When To Seek Legal Council
Many individuals may not immediately recognize the necessity for legal counsel after an automobile accident. According to a 2016 Insurance Research Council study, nearly half (49%) of respondents who sought legal counsel did so on the advice of a relative, friend, or physician. If you or a loved one is ever in a car accident, don’t hesitate to contact our office for a free legal consultation. Speaking with a lawyer is crucial for two reasons.
Firstly, there is a specific time frame in Arizona after an accident to file a legal claim. Even with a strong case, you cannot launch a lawsuit after this deadline. Therefore, consulting with an attorney promptly allows you ample time to prepare your case and file a lawsuit.
Secondly, it’s essential to document evidence, injuries, and witness statements accurately and completely as soon as possible after the incident. Alongside recent recollections, photos of the vehicle, scene, and injuries help illustrate the issue effectively. We recommend scheduling a consultation with our legal team as soon as possible, as waiting makes it more challenging to locate, recall, or verify these crucial details.
In most cases, if both parties agree to a financial resolution, a settlement can be reached outside of court. Your lawyer can assist by filing a formal demand letter outlining your case to the responsible party’s insurance company. Subsequent negotiations will aim to reach a resolution. Having an experienced attorney on your side enables you to clarify the situation and obtain the maximum compensation for your suffering.
