How Soon After the Accident Should I Talk with A Lawyer? What if I Can’t Afford a Lawyer?

If you call my office after having a car accident, you’ll get a free consultation. It’s not going to cost you anything to get an understanding of the lay of the land and what you should do next.

In my opinion, first and foremost, you want to make sure that your health is okay and you get the medical care that you need, so I’d worry about that first. Then, think about contacting a lawyer if you believe it is necessary.

Typically, if the other driver is at fault, their insurance company will contact you fairly quickly because they want to offer you something before you know the full extent of your injuries. That is where the trouble comes in because these things can kind of snowball. In such instances, consulting with a Reno personal injury lawyer can be crucial. You want to make sure that you know what your injuries are before you accept any offers from any insurance company.
