How quickly should I contact an attorney after I was injured by another person?

You should contact an attorney, immediately, because you may be approached by the insurance company offering an unreasonable settlement, or trying to obtain a recorded statement. The attorney can protect your rights such that you don't dismiss or jeopardize your entitlement to compensation in the future.
