Q: When should a torte case be on Justia after papers sent?
A: It is always a good idea to seek legal counsel immediately after an injury or accident to see what your legal rights and options are. It does not have to wait until litigation is initiated. Most consultations are free so it does not hurt to talk to an an attorney experienced in personal injury. The insurance companies are aggressively trying to push a few dollars at people before they are represented by an attorney to see if they will sign a release. Always seek legal counsel as soon as possible. If you were negligent and are being sued turn the matter over to your insurance carrier which has a duty to defend you in the case.
