Matt Dion Personal Injury Lawyer with client

waiting to talk to a lawyer is a critical mistake

Too often, potential clients compromise their claim by failing to contact a lawyer early in the process. Failing to engage a lawyer immediately after an accident is one of the worst mistakes you can make. Failing to contact a lawyer before you talk to the insurance company can make the difference between receiving fair compensation and fatally compromising your claim.

When you are hurt as a result of someone’s careless conduct, the first thing you do is to seek medical attention, then before you talk with an insurance company, you should schedule a free consultation with a personal injury lawyer. If you hire a lawyer, your lawyer will contact the insurance company and file a claim on your behalf. Your lawyer can recommend experienced medical providers who know how to properly treat your injuries and document your complaints, recovery and prognosis. Proper documentation of your injury, treatment and recovery will help to ensure that you receive the full compensation you deserve. Most personal injury lawyers may be able to work with your doctors to arrange a delayed payment of medical bills until your claim is settled.

If you have been injured because of someone’s careless conduct, call my office for a free consultation before you contact any insurance company, yours or the insurance company of the person who caused your injuries. It could be the most important call you make.
