When Should You Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer
It is very important to get necessary medical treatment as soon as possible after an accident to make sure that your injuries can later be validated. You should document any initial treatment received whether at the Emergency Room, an urgent care facility or at your doctor’s office. If you have doubt about whether the injury is too minor, have it checked out by medical professionals.
Secondly, it is so very important to speak with a lawyer as close to the time of injury as possible. Personal injury claims must be filed within a certain amount of time in Ohio or the claim will be barred under the applicable statute of limitations.
If you delay consulting with a lawyer about your case—remember there is no cost and no obligation to meet with an attorney from Slater & Zurz LLP– that time period may run out and you (the plaintiff) may be prevented from filing a claim concerning your injury.
We know how to get you the results you need in your personal injury case. We’ve helped clients receive in excess of $150,000,000 in verdicts and settlements.
