If you're injured in a car crash and you're very seriously hurt, you're not thinking about what you should do, you are thinking about how you're going to get better. And your family is thinking about how they're going to take care of you and you're probably still in the hospital. Meanwhile, there are a lot of other folks involved that are thinking from the beginning about how you are going to make a claim. Most of those people are involved in the insurance industry and they are already talking to lawyers, they're already talking to experts like engineers, they're already calling witnesses. Meanwhile, you're not thinking about making a claim, you're thinking about how this is going to impact your life. So that is why it's important to find and retain a competent attorney as early as possible because the deck is already stacked against you enough as it is. To have help early on makes a big difference when it comes to investigating what happened, talking to witnesses, coordinating with the law enforcement that responded to your crash. If it's a major crash involving commercial vehicles like an 18-wheeler or a tractor trailer, then that's even more the case. So if you're a victim of a car crash it's important to find some help as early as possible.
