When To Hire a Car Accident Lawyer
As a general guideline, it’s best to contact a lawyer after sustaining injuries in a car accident as soon as possible. There are a couple reasons for this, the first being the statute of limitations. The statute of limitations is a law implemented on a state by state basis which outlines when an injury victim can file a personal injury claim. According to the Code of Alabama section 6-2-38 the state of Alabama has a two-year timeline. More specifically, this means you have two years to file your or you will lose your chance to file and pursue compensation. While rare, there are some exceptions to this law where the filing time may change, including:
- If the injury victim is under the age of 19 at the time of the accident
- The negligent party left the state of Alabama before a claim could be filed
Beyond the statute of limitations, which applies to all personal injury claims, car accident injuries are unique in that they are most usually soft tissue injuries. Soft tissue injuries are injuries that affect the tendons, ligaments and muscles, such as whiplash. Like whiplash, these injuries progressively get worse over a few days or even weeks after the injury occurred.
Because of this, many injury victims sign a compensation agreement with an insurance company before talking to a lawyer only to discover after that their injuries are worse than they initially believed. The majority of people in this situation are not able to recover any additional compensation to cover their additional costs after signing a compensation agreement.
