Many times following a car accident people wonder whether they should call the police or not, any Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers you speak to will say yes.  The reason is that it is not always apparent after a Motor Vehicle Accident that you are injured, sometimes you do not feel any problems until the next day.  When you obtain a police report after even an innocuous seeming accident you give your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers an important tool.

First and foremost, the police report has intrinsic value because if you do eventually want to file a lawsuit through your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers it will evidence what you say happened.  It will have a narrative describing the Motor Vehicle Accident and it should also have a diagram depicting how the Motor Vehicle Accident occurred.  As Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers deal with these reports frequently they can learn a great deal about the Motor Vehicle Accident and even the strength of your case.  Finally, if the case does go to trial a police report that assigns fault to the other party will be compelling evidence and allow your Motor Vehicle Accident Lawyers to give you the best chance at recovery possible.

Waiting on Workers Compensation

When people go to a Workers Compensation Lawyer they expect that the majority of the heavy lifting in the case will be done by their Workers Compensation Lawyer and this is the case.  However, many clients are surprised at how long it can take to resolve their Workers Compensation case even though they have hired a Workers Compensation Lawyer.  Often this leads to animosity that gets directed at their Workers Compensation Lawyer, as the client thinks that his case is sitting around collecting dust.

What you need to remember when you have hired a Workers Compensation Lawyer to handle your Workers Compensation claim is that your Workers Compensation Lawyer is as invested in the case as you are.  They have no incentive to delay your case or to move your case too fast and have you get less than you deserve, this is the beauty of the contingent contract you have with your Workers Compensation Lawyer.

The fact is that Workers Compensation cases can take a long time.  If you have medical treatment that takes months or even years there is not much your Workers Compensation Lawyer can do to change that.  Once you have completed your medical treatment waiting on medical records and doctors appointments can lead to a lengthy delay before resolution.
