When you are involved in a car accident, a lot can happen fairly quickly. A lot can also go wrong if you do not take the necessary steps to protect yourself.
With this in mind, it is important to speak to a car accident attorney as soon as possible.
Call Fuller & Fuller at (800) 570-4878 today. Our auto accident attorneys are available 24/7, and we handle cases in Tacoma, Olympia, and the surrounding areas of Washington. When you contact us, we will discuss the details of your case and advise you of the steps you should take.
Should You Call a Lawyer If You Are Still in the Hospital?
Yes. If you are still in the hospital recovering from your car accident injuries, it is not too early to contact an attorney. At Fuller & Fuller, we are more than happy to meet with new clients at a medical facility, and our attorneys can also consult with you over the phone.
In fact, not only is it not too early to contact an attorney, but you do not want to wait any longer than necessary. Your attorney will need to collect evidence in order to establish your claim for compensation, and it will be important to conduct an investigation promptly.
Should You Call a Lawyer If You Haven’t Yet Contacted the Insurance Company?
Yes. In fact, if you have not yet contacted the insurance company, we recommend that you speak with an attorney before you do so.
Sharing too much information and making assumptions regarding liability are common mistakes. If you make these mistakes in talking with a representative from the insurance company, you may face significant difficulties obtaining the financial compensation to which you are legally entitled.
If you have not yet contacted the insurance company, our attorneys and staff can:
- Explain what you need to know about the insurance claims process
- Gather the evidence needed to assess your legal rights
- File your insurance claim on your behalf
- Deal with the insurance companies throughout your claim
- Advise you regarding settlement offers
- Prepare your case for trial, if necessary
Having an attorney after a car accident is helpful for filing a claim with the insurance company. Your lawyer can advise you throughout the entirety of the process.
Is It Too Late to Get a Car Accident Lawyer If You Have Already Filed an Insurance Claim?
No. If you have already contacted the insurance company, it is not too late to hire a car accident lawyer. However, we do recommend that you speak with a lawyer as soon as possible.
At Fuller & Fuller, we deal with the insurance companies on behalf of our clients. If you choose our firm to represent you, our attorneys and staff will make sure that the insurance companies do not take advantage of you or pressure you into settling for less than you deserve.
Can a Lawyer Handle Your Car Accident Claim During the COVID-19 Pandemic?
Yes. At Fuller & Fuller, we are open and fully staffed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Depending on what you prefer, we can arrange to meet with you safely in person, or we can work with you via phone and video conference.
The insurance companies are open and operating as well, and delaying your claim could hinder your chances of recovering just compensation.
