How quickly should I call a lawyer after an accident?

Return to FAQ Videos

Transcript:

After an accident you should call a lawyer right away for a number of reasons. You want to make sure that you protect the evidence and gather the evidence. Evidence can be destroyed or lost. Your lawyer can dispatch the investigators or go out to the scene him or herself, and ensure that your skid marks are preserved or the debris from the crash is preserved. Human movement can destroy evidence. The weather can, also, destroy evidence. Rain can wash evidence away. The sun can melt evidence. Snow can cover evidence.

The other reason to call a lawyer straight away is because that lawyer will guide you through the protections necessary for deadlines. Florida has specific statutory deadlines, like the fourteen day tip law that protects you. It, also, has protections that you need to be aware of regarding pre-suit notices, and those matters are critical, so call a lawyer as soon as you can.
