How soon should I contact a lawyer?

The sooner you call after an accident, the beginning of a dispute, or denial of life insurance benefits the better.

It’s always best when I can get started quickly on your claim before the memories of witnesses fade, before the accident scene is changed, before vehicles or airplanes are repaired or disposed of, and before documents are destroyed. Federal law allows tractor-trailer trucking companies to destroy driver logs and records as soon as 6 months after a tractor trailer wreck; quick action can preserve those records.

Insurance companies and corporations start their investigations as soon as they receive notice of a wreck, fire or crash. You need your lawyer to be able to “hit the ground running” to protect you.
