Every Second Counts After an Injury—Here’s Why

Three people having a discussion

If you were recently injured in an accident that wasn’t your fault, you may want to take time to process what happened and to think about your options.

But when it comes to protecting your rights to compensation, the clock starts ticking the second the accident occurs. The longer you wait to pursue an injury claim with experienced legal representation on your side, the more difficult it will be for you to get a favorable outcome.

Don’t Let the Insurance Company Gain the Upper Hand

Insurance companies make big profits by reducing or denying claims. They can get away with that by being proactive and immediately preparing their own defenses against victims like you after they’re hurt in accidents.

If you wait too long, the insurance company may have already built a strong case against you, and there may be little opportunity left for you or your legal team to counter their arguments.

There are three reasons that happen:

  • The insurance company can reject the cause of your injuries - The more time that passes between the accident and the day your claim is filed, the easier it is for the insurance company to claim your injuries had other causes or origins.
  • Evidence can disappear - Proving who was responsible for your accident is critical for your claim, but the evidence isn’t accessible or valid forever. And when it’s gone, it may be impossible to recover.
  • Statutes of limitations can expire - There are legal limits to filing claims for compensation. After the statutes of limitations expire, victims may be out of options.
