We’re often asked the question, “Do I really need to hire an attorney?” The rule that we have is: It really depends on the seriousness of the injury and what kind of economic and other problems the person is having because of the accident that caused the injury.
If you have a case in which you’ve had a bad injury, you’ve been to the doctor quite a bit, you’ve lost a lot of money, you might have a permanent kind of a situation on your hands, then that definitely is the kind of a case where you want to hire an attorney and get some advice. On the other hand, if you have a situation where you have not been to the doctor, or maybe if you have been you’ve only been one or two times, you’re not having really any ongoing problems and your medical bills aren’t very high, in that kind of situation you might be able to settle the case on your own and not have to pay an attorney to get any advice.
It really depends on your own comfort level in terms of how worried you are about your future and recovering from the injuries that you have suffered. Most attorneys who do personal injury work will talk to a client without any kind of a charge because the fee usually is on a contingency fee type of arrangement, so it wouldn’t be a bad idea for you to at least talk to an attorney and find out whether you really think you need to hire somebody or not as you go forward in recovering from your injuries.
