If you’ve been injured in a car accident, you should contact an attorney as soon as possible.

Some may say you should wait until all medical treatment is complete, but that’s not true.


Your attorney will not be able to file your lawsuit until AFTER all of the medical treatment is complete, but that doesn’t mean he or she can’t begin researching and investigating your case. There’s a lot that goes into a car accident case and a lot that your attorney will have to do, so the faster the process begins the better.

One factor towards the amount of compensation you receive is the cost of medical treatment. That’s why it’s critical that you’ve reached full recovery and all medical treatment is finished before the case is filed.

So, if you or a loved one are injured in a car accident, always seek medical treatment first and foremost. But if the accident was someone else’s fault, or you aren’t sure whose fault it was, you should contact an experienced car accident attorney as soon as you’re able to so that you can schedule an appointment and get the process started.

You need an attorney you can trust though. You need an attorney who’s going to fight to get you the compensation you deserve while walking and talking you through every step of the process. In this video I highlight the three simple qualities you need to look for when hiring a personal injury law firm.

Contacting an attorney is only one thing you need to do if you’re in a car accident. There are many things that need to be completed at the actual scene of the wreck. Many people either aren’t sure what they need to do or forget in the heat of the moment after shock and confusion take over.

That’s why I’ve developed a Car Accident Checklist that you can download here, print and keep in your car in case you’re ever in a car accident.
