The short answer is: as soon as possible.
The longer you wait to consult with an experienced New Orleans motorcycle accident attorney after a crash, the harder it can be to develop the strongest possible case to win you the largest possible award.
If you or a loved one consult with an accident attorney right away, the attorney stands the best chance of collecting fresh evidence.
Important evidence collected by your attorney can be things such as documentation of the scene of the accident, talking to witnesses while their memories are still fresh, and heading off attempts by insurers to cut you off with quick, but very low, settlement offers.
The sooner you act, the better your outcome is likely to be.
While things like medical costs that you’re entitled to recoup may not be fully known for some time, an experienced motorcycle accident attorney will know how to project your likely future costs and begin the process of getting you appropriate compensation.
The Gertler Law Firm has been helping people in New Orleans for three decades, and our experienced team of motorcycle accident attorneys can help you recover damages from your motorcycle accident in order to protect yourself and your family for the long term.
