Schimmerling Injury Law Offices has three convenient locations to serve you and specializes in personal injury and auto accidents. If you've been in a car, slip and fall or other kind of accident and intend to make a claim, there are several reasons why you need to consult an attorney as soon as possible. One reason is there are time limits (called "statutes of limitations") for making claims. If you wait too long and the statute of limitations passes, you will be prevented from bringing your claim. Courts strictly follow statutes of limitations. For example, a woman hurt in a car accident made a claim one day after the statute of limitations passed; even though this was a minor violation (just one day), a court dismissed her claim, and she could not recover damages for her injuries and losses. Another reason why you should seek legal help immediately is that delay can hurt your case. As time passes, it becomes harder to gather evidence and to find and interview witnesses, who may move or forget the details of your accident. Since waiting too long can cause your claim to be dismissed or hurt your chances of getting the maximum recovery you are legally entitled to, seek legal help as soon after an accident as possible.
