Immediately. The longer you wait to hire a personal injury lawyer, the more difficult your case may become.
If you delay, you put your fair recovery in jeopardy. Specifically, you risk:
- Letting the insurance adjuster manipulate the situation. The insurance adjuster assigned to your claim may try to convince you to settle quickly and for less than its worth. This is how the insurance company makes money, but it may be doing so by denying you some of the damages to which you're legally entitled.
- Losing valuable evidence. Hiring a lawyer right away allows him or her to gather physical evidence before it’s gone and secure accurate witness statements while their memories are still fresh.
- Waiting too long to take legal action. Texas, like all states, has a statute of limitations for personal injury claims. If you don't file your case before the statute of limitations expires and later try to pursue legal action, the defendant will likely file a motion to dismiss with the court and probably be granted the motion. You won’t recover anything.
