When to Hire a Car Accident Lawyer
If you are in a car accident with an uninsured motorist, hiring a car accident lawyer can be a great option to cover the costs of damage. However, there’s a lot of grey area after car accidents and it can be hard to know whether or not you actually need a lawyer. This video explains when you need to hire an attorney for your case.
Sometimes you can simply work with the insurance company directly to get your costs covered. It’s fine to represent yourself, but there are many factors to look at before you make a decision.
One thing to look at is what type of case you have. Auto and pedestrian accidents are fairly straightforward and you can likely represent yourself. Medical malpractice after you are injured in a car accident, however, or wrongful death will call for a professional lawyer.
The next factor is the severity of injuries. If there are only soft tissue injuries, you are fine representing yourself. Broken bones, burns, and other injuries that may require more serious and expensive treatment are all instances that it helps to have a car accident attorney.
