Once you’ve been able to speak to a medical professional and have been assessed, call a personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. There are a number of reasons for this. The insurance company will likely call you very soon after the accident to take a statement from you, and answer questions. If you’re not fully informed, you could do a disservice to your claim by answering these questions. So, contact a lawyer as soon as practicable after you’ve been assessed by a health professional.
