- What is the typical life cycle of a personal injury case?
- We've got a situation where you wake up in the morning and this is an example I use. No one puts their pants or skirt on in the morning expecting to be in a car accident, but unfortunately, they're you're driving to work and Yikes, it happens Monday. Yeah, ruin your day and you know, it's a terrible situation, but one that we have to live with until we get the Jetsons flying cars, but that may be a while away. So what's the first thing that happens once an attorney gets involved? And I think we talked the other day about how it is very important to make sure that you contact an attorney as soon as possible after an accident because there are some things that you don't expect there are some the insurance company is going to be trying to take advantage of you.
- So the first thing that happens after we are retained, you've already started, you've gotten checked out, you've started your medical care. When we get involved, the first thing we do is we start our investigative phase. And by that I mean we send out a formal notification to the insurance companies that are involved that we represent you. And please don't talk to our client, talk to us, keeps them from trying to pull the wool over your eyes, and order the police report. if we need to. We'll send an investigator out to look at the intersection or talk to witnesses.
