When Should I Call a Personal Injury Attorney…

Not sure if you should call a Personal Injury Attorney? Well, look no further! All of the information that you need to know is right here.


No matter if your accident took place last week, last month, or ten-minutes ago – it’s always best practice for someone to look into an attorney, especially before it’s too late, and you’re left wondering what help you could’ve received.

It’s true that a Personal Injury Attorney is not the first call a person will make when an accident occurs, however, most people that we speak to are usually uncertain on when they should call. Typically, one of these three situations will occur and spawn the desire for a person to reach out to Marcari, Russotto, Spencer & Balaban:

  • Understanding that you’ve sustained serious bodily injuries.
  • Feeling upset, disappointed, and frustrated by the amount of time it takes to move forward independently.
  • Feeling the pressure of the financial strain that medical bills/bills can cause.

After You Realize You’ve Been Seriously Injured

Listen, we understand, and we have for years, you don’t want to blow the situation out of proportion, you just want to handle it and continue to move forward with your life – understood.

However, and we cannot stress this enough, if you’ve been involved in and injured in an accident due to the negligence of another, it’s best for you to strongly consider reaching out to an attorney and your primary care physician as soon as possible.

It’s not practical to wait until you notice pain/pains have lingered for quite some time and may have even worsened – if you have been injured, you need proper care to rectify those injuries – like you need the proper representation to obtain justice and compensation – especially if the accident was so catastrophic that your quality of life will never be the same again.

Frustrated By The Amount of Time it Takes

Again – we get it. 

There’s paperwork.

And phone calls.

And maybe some paperwork, and a few more phone calls.

Impact of the Financial Strain on Life

If there’s one thing that’s certain – the repercussions of an accident can become incredibly expensive.

Even if you’ve decided to go with the cheapest possible deductibles in terms of insurance, it could still end up being several thousand dollars that you weren’t exactly prepared to spend. Here are some scenarios:

Property Damage: Regardless of if the accident in question was entirely the fault of another person, you will still have to pay maybe a few thousand dollars for car repairs.

Medical Expenses: Your insurance may cover some costs – but, that doesn’t account for the cost of your copay(s) – of which there are some that require people may have to pay 20%. After months and months, or even a year, those copays can begin to drain a whole in a person’s pocket.

Lost Wages: Injuries will most likely keep you out of work – but for how long, that’s the real question. You and your family depend on your income and it’s now stopped, but monthly costs and bills have and will not.
