Act Quickly After a Car Accident
At Rainwater, Holt & Sexton, we understand the pain and stress you may be dealing with after a car accident. While it’s important for you to focus on your recovery and spend time with your family while you heal, it’s also critical to remember the importance of securing compensation for your medical bills and lost wages.
Even if the accident wasn’t your fault, pursuing compensation on your own can be difficult. One of the best ways to maximize your chances of getting the money you deserve is to get an experienced Arkansas auto accident lawyer on your side, and the sooner you call, the better.
When it comes to contacting a lawyer after your accident, it’s vital to act quickly for two reasons:
- Evidence can disappear. It can be extremely difficult to get a favorable outcome if there’s no proof that you weren’t at fault for the crash. Crash scene debris, witness testimonies, and even traffic camera footage can all serve as valuable evidence for your claim, but they all must be collected promptly.
- Statutes of limitations can expire. The statute of limitations for filing an auto accident injury claim in Arkansas is three years after the date of the accident. But, there are shorter deadlines inside an injury claim. For example, many health insurance policies set a deadline as short as 90 days for filing a claim. My health care providers will not, however, want to file a health insurance claim for treatment provided to a person injured in a collision (thinking they will get a higher rate of compensation if they wait for the settlement distribution). It is necessary to act timely, inside all deadlines, in order to maximize the net recovery – the amount that goes into your pocket.
