When you are injured in a car accident, you may have a cause of action against the at-fault party. Cause of action can be defined as a set of facts that allow you the right to sue for harms caused. While a cause of action may entitle you to money, you should consider legal representation to ensure maximum recovery.
To obtain legal representation, an attorney-client relationship must be formed, usually through a retainer agreement or contract between you and an attorney. Once retained, your attorney can act on your behalf, from negotiating a satisfactory settlement to litigating your case to verdict. Retaining an attorney as soon as possible after your cause of action accrues can be helpful because there are important deadlines (e.g., statutes of limitation and notice requirements) you must meet to ensure you do not lose out the compensation you may be eligible to receive.
