If you have been involved in an auto accident or other situation resulting in a personal injury, you could be entitled to compensation.
Top Reasons Why You Should Act Now After an Accident
Gathering Evidence Immediately
Following an accident, a quick and thorough investigation can make all the difference in proving negligence and determining the cause. Gathering evidence as soon as possible aids this process.
Accurate Witness Statements
If there are witnesses who will provide statements as evidence in the case, it is best to speak with them as soon after the accident as possible. This helps to make sure that their account is accurate since it is still fresh in their mind.
Statute of Limitations
Every legal case has a statute of limitations. In most personal injury cases in Tennessee, the standard time limit is one year. It is important not to delay starting your claim otherwise it could be too late.
Compensation Takes Time
Getting a resolution to a personal injury lawsuit can take time. If you have additional expenses due to ongoing medical treatment and loss of earnings you will want to get the ball rolling as soon as possible.
Protect Your Rights
Insurance companies make every effort not to have to pay out and the other party’s insurer may contact you soon after the accident and pressure you into saying something that can harm your case. A lawyer can protect you from this.
Get Medical Documentation
Having a personal injury lawyer at your service as early as possible means they will be able to help you make sure that your injuries are appropriately documented to help support your case.
