When should I contact an attorney after a car accident? Keep watching this video to learn the answer to this important question. Hi, I’m Ted Spaulding. I’m an Atlanta personal injury trial lawyer, and I’m the founder here at Spaulding Injury Law. So, the short answer to this question, in my opinion, is immediately. If you haven’t been…especially if you haven’t been through a process like this before, you need to learn what your rights are, and certain things that that lawyer can tell you you ought to do, regardless of whether you hire a lawyer right away.

So, I always urge people to call a lawyer and run it past them. Get some information. It doesn’t mean you have to hire them yet. And that’s the big thing for me. There’s a difference between a question of, when do I talk to a lawyer and when do I hire a lawyer? So, talking to a lawyer immediately. Hiring may or may not be immediate. You’re not gonna hear that from those lawyers. But there are some factors in my opinion that, a lot being personal, that go into your decision making, whether you immediately hire a lawyer after a wreck or not.

So, contact a lawyer immediately. It’s your best thing going for you. Get some advice on steps to take to immediately start to protect your interests. Hope this answers your question.
