After a Car Accident, Act Quickly To Consult an Attorney

When should you hire an attorney?

After a car accident, it is important to seek the assistance of an experienced and passionate personal injury attorney. While they are many questions to consider after an accident, time is of the essence when it comes to finding the justice and compensation you deserve.

Florida’s Statute of Limitations

In Florida, a statute of limitations means that you only have a certain amount of time to file a claim after a car accident. After a car accident, you have four years from the date of the accident to file a claim in court. If you do not file a claim, your can lose your legal right to file a claim. This is one reason why hiring an attorney can be incredibly beneficial, as they will be aware of the statute of limitations for your case and can help you meet all deadlines to find justice and compensation.

An Attorney Can Help Complex Cases

An attorney can be helpful in any kind of car accident case, even a seemingly minor car accident with no visible injuries. However, an attorney can be particularly helpful in situations where:

  • There were significant, serious injuries
  • Liability was not clearly established
  • The accident involves an underinsured or uninsured driver
  • The accident occurred in a school zone or construction zone

A personal injury attorney can be especially valuable in accident involving factors like these. But even if there does not appear to be any serious injuries, any attorney can help if later complications, like invisible injuries, arise.
