When Jay Elliott was asked, “What’s the one mistake injured people often make in regard to their legal case?” He replied, “Not getting an attorney involved early on in the process.”
Why is early representation such a critical thing? His answer may surprise you.
“In my 27 years of experience as a Nebraska personal injury and worker’s compensation lawyer, I can tell you that waiting to retain an attorney, definitely hurts your case.”
“It is important to come see me in the early stages after an accident and injury because there is so much more I can do to help you –and your case, at that point. For example, I can recommend appropriate physicians. It is critical to choose a treating or evaluating doctor who is willing to be an advocate for you. It has been my experience that many doctors have very little interest in being involved in litigation cases. So, choosing the wrong doctor can really hurt your case in the long run. I can recommend physicians and specialists who have proven they will go to bat for their patients. And, believe me, not all doctors will.”
“Another thing to consider is the fact that there are time limitations in which to file personal injury and worker’s compensation cases. The Nebraska personal injury deadline is four years from the date of the accident. In worker’s compensation cases, the filing deadline is two years.”
“Bottom line is it matters to me that my clients get the very best medical AND legal help. I can do that most effectively when I am involved in a case early on.”
