When Should You Hire an Accident Lawyer?, Lexington-Fayette Central, Kentucky

Whether you've been hurt in a car crash or suffered an injury due to unsafe conditions in a store, a skilled accident lawyer can help you get the financial relief you deserve. Some may think that they won't need an attorney until their medical treatment is finished, when, in fact, it's best to seek legal representation as soon after the accident as possible.

The quicker the attorney begins working on your case, the more effectively they can represent your interests. Every state has statutes of limitations requiring that claims be filed within a certain period after the initial injury is discovered. A good attorney will work diligently to get your claim settled well before the statute of limitations this will save you  money and bring you closure more quickly than should your case drag out to trial. However, even if your case did have to enter the Court system, the team at Thompson Law Office is ready to take on the insurance companies to get you what you deserve.  Your accident lawyer will ensure that your claim is filed on time, well before the deadline described in state law.

If they anticipate obstacles, your attorney will also have more time to develop a legal strategy and put it into motion. When a lawyer has to step into a situation that has been developing for some time, they will spend a significant amount of time catching up and familiarizing themselves with the details.

Being able to coordinate with your health care providers from the first day of your accident is also key to building a strong case, especially if the insurer disputes liability for your injuries. Your attorney can collect evidence as your treatment progresses and present it in a manner most likely to get the results you're after.
