When a client asks you “Do I need a lawyer?” what do you answer?
Does a person need a lawyer if they’ve been injured in an accident? Well, many insurance adjusters will tell you on the phone you don’t and if someone is telling you not to get a lawyer, I think my opinion is: get a lawyer. No one ever gets a better result if they don’t have an attorney; that’s my opinion.
I’ve been doing this work for 23 years now and I’ve seen case after case after case, people I talk to on the phone, saying they wish they would have gotten an attorney.
Well getting an attorney is easy. Most personal injury attorneys like me will work on a contingency basis, which means no upfront payments. We get paid when we get the case settled.
In my opinion you get more for your car accident injury claim if you have an attorney; your just going to get a better result. It’s because you have a force to back you up; you have….. it’s like having a quiver…. an arrow in your quiver. You’re armed and you’re protected. That way you can focus in on getting better and going on the road to recovery so we can get you back to the point where you were before the car accident.
