How quickly should I contact an attorney after I was injured by another person?
If you’re injured in an accident by another person, you need to contact an attorney right away. That doesn’t mean that you necessarily need to hire them, but at least keep your rights protected. Since most lawyers handle cases on a contingent fee contract, you have nothing to lose by hiring an attorney to begin with. If it turns out that you’re fine, you don’t have injuries, be grateful. They’ll close their file and there will be no cost to you.
