Contacting a car accident lawyer

Have you been involved in a car accident? Did you suffer serious injuries? Wondering if you should contact an attorney and when? If your car accident was severe or complicated, contacting a car accident attorney (aka, personal injury lawyer) should be top of your to-do list. Call a lawyer right after the accident occurs (and before any settlement with the insurance company) to protect your rights and find out your legal options. While many cases settle, it is always best to have the experience of a car accident attorney in case your case does go to trial.
