Do You Need An Attorney To Handle An Accident Case?

Handling an auto accident claim on your own can cost you far more money than you save. By the time you realize you need an attorney's help, you may have already made mistakes that will damage your case and result in a lower recovery.

Do I Need A Lawyer?

If you suffered only minor injuries, you probably do not need an attorney to resolve your claim. However, it's still a good idea to talk to a lawyer in case your injuries turn out to be more serious than you first thought. If you settle your claim too early, you may end up with less money than you need to pay your future expenses.

The more serious your injury, the more important it is to seek a lawyer's help to ensure you receive the maximum compensation you deserve.

When Should I Hire A Lawyer?

If you need a lawyer, you need one right away. If you attempt to negotiate your own injury claim without legal advice, you could say or do things that will make it harder to obtain a favorable outcome.

For example, by making a recorded statement, you could give the insurance company evidence that it can use against you. Your words may be twisted to mean something you never meant. To protect your rights, you should not say anything or sign anything without legal advice.

Since our lawyers work on a contingency fee basis, it costs no more money to hire us at the beginning of your case than at the end. We charge no fees unless we recover compensation for you.
