When should I retain legal representation?
We recommend speaking to one of our experienced personal injury lawyers as soon after the accident or assault as possible. When contacted early we can ensure that pertinent evidence is preserved and facts are recorded. We can also advise you on your available options, the time limits for commencing legal action and what parties may become involved.
Who can instruct the lawyer on behalf of a party involved in the accident or assault?
The answer to this will be determined on a case-by-case basis. Typically when a party cannot personally advise legal counsel due to a serious injury, death or age our lawyers will work with the individual who holds legal authority over another’s personal affairs such as a person named in a Power of Attorney, an Executor or Guardian. Just because you personally cannot instruct a lawyer does not mean that you cannot retain one and successfully defend or commence litigation.
