Do I need a lawyer after getting into a car wreck?

Car accidents are very common in Oklahoma and the rest of the United States. Accidents that are minor in nature -- such as slight fender benders that result in little property damage and no injuries -- can usually be handled by working with the insurance companies directly.

However, when accidents are more serious or involve injuries to anyone involved, there is a lot more at stake and the process can be very complicated, which is why many people turn to an attorney for help. Having an attorney represent you following a car accident can help you:

  • Recover the financial losses you suffered as a result of the accident;
  • Handle the significant paperwork that is required following an accident claim; and
  • Focus on recovering from your injuries without worrying about your claim.

How to choose a personal injury lawyer

There are many personal injury lawyers out there, and it's important to choose the right one. The good news is that most personal injury firms offer a free initial consultation, giving you an opportunity to meet several lawyers and choose the one who is right for you.

At your initial consultations, you will want to ask the lawyers about their experience, the approach they take to your type of case and the fees that they charge. You will also want to get a feel for how you will be treated by the firm and whether you have a good rapport with the attorney.

Keep in mind that most experienced attorneys will not charge you a fee unless they are able to recover damages for you.

When to contact a personal injury lawyer

Ideally, it is best to start working with an attorney as soon as possible after the accident occurs. Not only is there a deadline for filing claims after car accidents, it is also important to hire an attorney early on in order to make sure the necessary evidence can be used in your case.

Generally speaking, it is best to contact a lawyer within a week or two of your accident. Of course, you definitely want to speak with an attorney before accepting a settlement offer from an insurance company.
