In the aftermath of a devastating accident, securing proper legal representation can feel like just another task on a seemingly endless list of things you need to do.
However, getting the right attorney early can make a significant difference in your legal case and take many tasks off your plate. Early retention of an attorney will ensure you have someone there to secure evidence, put parties on notice and start accident investigation while evidence is still in place and witnesses can still be located.
Many clients worry about perception—they do not want to be perceived as less legitimately injured because they called an attorney early. This, however, is far from the case. Retaining counsel early allows clients to think less about their claims and more about recovery.
