Do I Need An Attorney For My Car Accident Case? Maybe Not!
While not every injury case requires the help of a lawyer, everyone who has been injured or whose family member has been injured or suffered a wrongful death should at least consult a lawyer. If you don't at least know your rights, you don't stand a chance when you go up against an experienced defense lawyer or insurance claims adjuster.
So, how do you know if you need a lawyer or not? Basically, if you were in a car accident and received no injuries or your injuries were so minor that you required little to no medical attention, you probably don't need a lawyer to help you with your case. If you were injured but recovered within a few days, you may be better off negotiating a settlement with the opposing insurance company on your own than hiring an attorney. On minor cases, the lawyer fees may actually cut into what you could get by negotiating your own settlement.
Whether You Are Going To Go It Alone Or You Have A Lawyer To Help You, Here Is Your First Step...
For Illinois residents who have been injured in a car accident, David has written a similar book that is specific to the laws of Illinois. "11 Mistakes That Could Wreck Your Illinois Car Accident Case" can be ordered for free by calling our office at 1-888-460-3165 or by clicking here.
