It is never too late to initiate a conversation with a personal injury attorney. Moreover, it is never too late to seek the proper medical attention for something as traumatic as an accident involving bodily harm. Following a serious accident, some injuries may not appear until days or weeks after the injury. For example, spinal injuries and brain injuries may only present with very subtle symptoms initially. As the injured person gradually returns to normal activity, however, the effects of violent impact to the head, neck, or spine may become evident. An accident victim should be evaluated by a medical professional, even if the injury event is not recent. This will ensure that mild or moderate symptoms do not develop into more serious and debilitating conditions.
In the case of a traumatic accident causing physical harm, a personal injury attorney is especially valuable to a potential client because, even if the injurious event was not recent, he/she has experience working with medical professionals, medical billing, and insurance companies to restore the client’s well-being and financial stability. A skilled personal injury attorney puts an injured client in touch with expert diagnosticians that design an individualized plan for rehabilitation and recovery; then the attorney gathers materials from the diagnostician and care providers and communicates on the client’s behalf with medical billing groups, insurance companies, and representatives for the at-fault party. Injured victims have the right to an attorney who advocates for their physical and financial stability and prosperity.
A serious accident warrants a conversation with a personal injury attorney even if the event did not occur recently.
A special message to the friends and potential new clients of FVF Law:
FVF’s client contract has, for a long time, contained the following termination clause: “FVF Law is a values-driven law firm, and because diversity is a value we support, “good cause” [for termination] shall include any expression by the client of intolerance with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.”
Now more than ever, FVF recognizes the global need to combat racism proactively, and to do so with more than just words. This firm was built on the mission of being better. Better lawyers. Better advocates. Better people.
We all know being better requires an ongoing commitment to learning, growth, introspection, and change. We enthusiastically embrace that commitment and hereby pledge to do more than just talk about it. Stay tuned on our blog and facebook page for more about what FVF is doing to back this important global effort.
In the meantime, we would respectfully request new clients who find their own views incompatible with this pledge to consider contacting another firm to handle their case. In any case, we invite you to provide honest feedback by emailing email@example.com.
Josh and Aaron, and all of FVF Law
