When should I contact a lawyer after an accident?

The three most important things to do after an accident are call 911, obtain medical assistance and call an attorney. 

Answer questions from law enforcement and medical personnel, but do not make statements that indicate you may be wholly or partially at fault for the accident. Anything you say can be turned against you when you are filing a claim for injuries and damages. Speak to a lawyer as soon as you can.

After an accident, do not wait to speak to an attorney at Melaragno, Placidi & Parini. We can provide you with immediate legal advice, inform you of your rights and help determine who was at fault for the collision. Contact an experienced car accident attorney the same day as the crash if that is possible. If you cannot do that, have a family member or friend reach out to us. The sooner you start the process of filing a claim for compensation for your injuries and damages, the sooner you can get your life back on track.
