How much does it cost to hire a personal injury attorney to begin an investigation after your car wreck? Nothing.

The McArthur Law Firm works on a contingency fee basis, meaning we do not get paid unless and until you get paid.

It costs you nothing to hire an attorney at the McArthur Law Firm to begin the investigation of your case.

It could cost you your chance to recover from an at-fault party if you wait to contact a lawyer.

If you are hurt in a car wreck, your primary concern in the days – and often weeks – following the wreck is your physical condition. It should be. You need to be seeking immediate medical treatment to determine what injuries you sustained in the wreck and be sure you are following instructions from those medical providers about recommended follow-up treatment. Your physical condition is always your first priority, and it is ours too. In more severe collisions with serious injuries, many people are in the hospital for several days, or have to undergo surgery, and are not thinking about hiring an attorney.

All too often, by the time an injured person decides to hire an attorney, the evidence that is critical and sometimes necessary to proving a case and recovering money damages against an at-fault driver or company, is destroyed, repaired, or altered in some way.

Unless you hire an attorney who specializes in car wreck cases as soon as possible after a wreck to act on your behalf, you are risking your ability to recover for the medical expenses, lost wages, and physical and emotional pain and suffering that were caused by no fault of your own. This fact applies in every case, but it especially applies to cases involving tractor-trailers or 18-wheelers.

Unfortunately, too many people do not learn why it is so important to retain an attorney immediately after a wreck until it is too late. It costs you nothing to contact a competent attorney who specializes in car wreck cases. Many times, the attorneys at the McArthur Law Firm are called to represent a client who is still in the hospital. We travel to client’s homes and even hospitals to have an initial visit with a client, and if you hire us, we act immediately to make sure your rights are protected.

By hiring an attorney at the McArthur Law Firm immediately following your wreck, you are getting an experienced legal team who will take immediate and necessary steps on your behalf to demand evidence is preserved. We take those steps immediately so that you can focus on your health and your injuries and have peace of mind knowing your rights are being fought for and protected.

Post-wreck investigations are crucial to determining the fault of the parties; the extent of the property damage; and the sequence of events leading up to the car wreck. Time is not on your side following an automobile crash if you have been injured by the fault of another driver.
