When Should I Contact a Lawyer?

After an accident, most people wonder if or when they need to hire an attorney. The truth is if you're wondering, the answer is yes, you absolutely need a lawyer and you need them as soon as possible.

Not Sure If or When You Need to Hire an Attorney?

A lot of people ask me, "I don't know if I need a lawyer." If you're wondering whether you need a lawyer, then the answer is you definitely need a lawyer. People think all the time that “the company is going to do the right thing” or “I can trust the insurance company” or “I'm just going work this out because I work in business or I've got some experience with this.” The reality is that big companies, insurance companies, they have teams of experts and specialists whose sole purpose, whose sole job when they get up in the morning and when they go to bed at night is to take money out of your pocket. To make sure that you don't get the right result for your case.

So, if you're wondering if you need a lawyer, the answer is yes, you do need a lawyer.

If the insurance company is giving you the runaround and they're denying your claim or they're delaying your claim, you need to call somebody who deals with insurance companies every day. They're not going to respect you until you get the right lawyer—and there's a ton of lawyers out there and most of them don't know what they're doing. So, you need to get a lawyer that deals with the insurance company every day. They're going to know exactly who we are. It's important that you understand your rights. That's the very first step. I can explain and walk you through all of your options, all of your rights, and the consequences of not exercising them.

As soon as someone's injured, the company has already contacted risk management. They've already contacted claims. When you have switched over from dealing with your boss to now dealing with claims, there's one goal and one goal only, and that's to minimize any kind of payout to you. That is 100% true, 100% of the time in every case I've ever seen. They'll do anything to try to make sure that you don't ultimately receive what you should.
