I was just in an accident. When should I meet with a lawyer?
Sooner rather than later. It is important to seek legal advice earlier in the process. An early meeting with a lawyer will enable you to fully understand insurance available to you and medical options that exist for your condition. With that being said, your health and recovery following an accident should come first and is most important. If you are experiencing pain and other symptoms after an accident, your obvious, most immediate priority should be seeking appropriate medical care.
