If injured in a car accident or other personal injury accident or incident, you may be wondering if you should hire an attorney. The answer is, it typically depends on the severity of the injuries and property damage.
If injuries a simple cuts, bruises, or minor injuries, and the insurance companies are ready to work out the car accident damage or property damage claim, you may not need a lawyer. Minor injury and property damage claims can often be resolved in small claims court, without the need of an attorney.
When broken bones, severe injuries, the need for physical therapy and medical procedures enters the equation, insurance companies often become less accommodating. Insurance companies will often try to delay or deny your injury claim. They may also try to reach out to you directly to try to get you to settle quickly, before you have a clear picture of the full extent of your injuries and the long-term or permanent affect of those injuries. In essence, they are trying to make your case go away fast, so they are absolved of what your injury case may actually be worth.
