Early and thorough trial preparation is the foundation for success in personal injury and accident cases from the very beginning. Evidence disappears; people lose things and forget details, so it’s important from the very beginning to be prepared. We know the natural tendency when an accident, injury, or death occurs, is for a family to take the position that they are not going to think about legal matters immediately. They often feel need to get through the funeral or give the injuries time to heal and then they will find take the out if the insurance company is going to do the right thing. Healing is certainly the most important thing. However, the insurance company wants you to have that attitude because it saves them money. Having the right personal injury and accident lawyer and law firm involved from the very beginning makes all the difference. You need a legal team on your side in order to handle and take care of the legal issues, while allowing the your family and you to take care of all the things that need to be done to heal.
