When Do I Contact a Lawyer after an Auto Accident?

Posted by James Peters | Oct 16, 2018 | 0 Comments

No one ever plans on an auto accident, so when they do happen, they can be a frightening situation, especially if you or a passenger are injured. While most vehicle accidents involve only property damage – damage to the vehicle as opposed to the occupants – one in three accidents do involve personal injury.

So, what do you do if you‘re injured due to another driver's negligence? It can sometimes be difficult to know if it's appropriate to contact a lawyer regarding your situation.  While some car wrecks are massive and life-altering and clearly require an attorney, smaller wrecks seem straightforward and uncomplicated and make it hard to know if it's appropriate.

The fact of the matter is it's never too early to speak with an attorney after a car wreck. If the accident involved any type of serious injury that required a trip to a doctor, you should consult with an attorney immediately. In another scenario, if the police report does not accurately describe the events of the accident, or puts you at fault when you believe it was the other party's fault, an attorney can help. Additionally, an attorney can help when the insurance company is acting in bad faith.

It's recommended you contact an auto accidents lawyer in Rockville, MD as soon as possible following the incident. The attorneys at Kurtz and Peters know the ins and outs of car accident cases and can help you during this stressful time. Our extensive experience representing victims of auto and truck accidents gives us the insight and know-how to handle any case involving vehicular accidents.
