After you’ve survived an injury-causing accident that was not your fault, the main job of a personal injury attorney is to prove that the other party was wholly responsible for what occurred.
But how exactly does a lawyer make that case?
In other words, what is the process that a personal injury lawyer takes to help prove that his or her client did not cause the accident?
An accident of any kind, whether it involves a motor vehicle, or a slip-and-fall at the workplace can impact your life in ways you never expected, especially if you suffered serious injuries. And after this type of event occurs, the question often arises:
How long should you wait before you contact a legal advisor?
Most personal injury lawyers would answer with one word: immediately.
And that’s true, but what’s more important is for you to understand why contacting an attorney as quickly as possible can positively affect your legal claim.
