How soon should I contact an attorney?

You should get in touch with an attorney as soon as you or your loved one has received proper medical treatment for any injuries. As time passes, memories fade and it can become more difficult to construct an adequate case. Contacting an attorney early will help ensure that relevant evidence is preserved.  Legal deadlines for lawsuits also are important.  All claims are subject to a statute of limitations, and there may be other legal obstacles that come about if you wait too long.
