When Should I Consult An Attorney For My Accident?

Immediately! For the following reasons. The insurance company for negligent party will start building their defense as soon as they are notified of the accident, Usually the same day. They will contact you and attempt to get a recorded statement. They want to talk to you before you have had an opportunity to talk to an attorney.

They want to get as much information as they can from you to exonerate their insured from liability. They will send you a medical release authorizing them to get your medical records from the time of birth. If you don’t seek treatment right away for any reason (perhaps you had no transportation, were forced to go to work, etc.) they will claim you were not really injured, or, if so, that your injuries were not as severe as you contend. Failure to immediately contact an aviation attorney immediately frequently results in loss of valuable evidence.
