Time Is of the Essence When You've Been Injured or Arrested

In each situation, it is critical to protect your legal remedies, preserve evidence, and assert your constitutional rights as soon as possible after the injury or arrest occurs. In many cases, there are statutory deadlines which must be met or else your legal rights and remedies may be lost or compromised. At the Heyman Law Firm, we have dealt with all of the numerous issues which must be addressed to protect your rights, and, if injured, your claim for compensation.
