Taking legal action after a car accident can be stressful in ways beyond imagination. This is why it's always recommended to have a good car accident attorney on your side when wanting to ensure your case is successful. Attorneys are also a great resource after an accident because they are there to answer any legal questions you may have.
When addressing questions and concerns you may have with your attorney, you must ask the right questions to ensure maximum case success. Here are five questions you should always ask your attorney after being in a car accident:
- What Steps Should I Take?
Although many things need to be done after an accident, seeking medical attention should be your priority – even if you don't think you are hurt. After being seen by a medical professional, you should contact a lawyer who can help you take the proper steps.
- How Can I Best Protect My Case?
This is a very common question after a car accident. Working with an attorney, preserving evidence from the scene, avoiding talking to the other party's insurance company, and staying off social media are all proactive ways to protect your case.
- What Information Do I Need to Provide?
When working with your attorney, ask what types of evidence, witnesses, documents, or photographs would best support your case. This will make you more prepared when it's time to submit documentation.
- Are There Deadlines I Need to Meet?
This is a question you always want to make sure you ask your attorney because the Statute of Limitations for every state is different. After the deadline has passed, you will no longer be eligible to take legal action.
- How Long Will My Case Take?
When working on your case with an attorney, time may vary depending on the details of your specific case. Always ask for an honest answer, so you have an ideal time frame to follow.
