When Should I Hire a Lawyer After a Car Accident?
When you’ve been in an accident, you’ll first want to call 911 and get the medical attention you and others need. For many people, the next call is to their insurance company to start the often difficult and time-consuming process of filing a claim. But it’s crucial to call an attorney if you’ve been in an accident where you or others have suffered injuries, or you may be at least partially at fault for the accident. In these cases, you need to call an attorney immediately.
Pennsylvania has a two-year statute of limitations, giving you up to two years to file a lawsuit. However, the sooner you file, the better your chances of recovering the compensation to which you’re entitled. Why? Experienced attorneys can gather all the available evidence and make the strongest case possible when you file a claim soon after an accident. That includes police reports, surveillance footage, eyewitness accounts, and more. But the longer you wait, the harder it is to secure much of this evidence. And that hurts your chances of recovering the full amount of your claim.
