If someone is injured in a car crash, why do they need to get an attorney working for them as quickly as possible? We ask attorney Michelle Martin in this Ask The Lawyers Quick Question.
Well first and foremost, when you first get into a car crash, you need to sit down somewhere, you need to go take care of yourself, and you need to make sure that all of your faculties are still working appropriately, we always think that we are super humans and we think that, "Oh, I'm just fine". And then one to two weeks later, you're wondering why you're unable to get out of the bed, you're wondering why you feel overwhelmed. Why you feel anxious... You know, car crashes are very traumatic experiences, and you need someone who's gonna be able to get the information from all parties involved immediately. You need someone who's gonna wanna get your medical information to make sure that you have the proper medical providers in place, and you're gonna want someone to make sure that your vehicle is taken care of, because you don't want those headaches, you need to rest, and you need to make sure that you are taken care of so that once this is over, you can get back to normal.
