DO I NEED TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY FOR MY CAR ACCIDENT CLAIM?
Often we get calls by somebody maybe who was only mildly injured in a car accident. They want to know if it makes sense to hire an attorney for their car accident claim. Often, we advise people after discussing the claim with them, discussing the types of injuries they’ve sustained, and discussing the treatment they’ve received. We might tell those people that it would be best for them resolve the case without the services of an attorney. If we don’t feel like we can bring value to the case, in other words, our client is going to be better off when the case is over if the client hired us then we try to give input, give advice, give counsel, on how to handle the case on their own especially in circumstances where the treatment is limited to maybe one visit to a doctor or a quick visit to the emergency room. We very well might counsel you on that type of case how to handle it on your own without the services of an attorney.
