Do I Need a Lawyer To Help Me With My Accident Case?
You may not need a lawyer if you're in an accident. This is contrary to what you may read or hear from other injury attorneys.
Most cases that involve medical bills of only a thousand to two thousand dollars probably don't require a lawyer. You may be better off negotiating with the insurance adjuster yourself if you have a small claim.
You will have a hard time finding any reputable personal injury lawyer to represent you if you have such a small claim. However, if your medical bills are more than a couple thousand dollars, you may be better off hiring a personal injury lawyer to represent you.
Generally, most accident victims recover more money for their injuries with a lawyer. The Insurance Research Council (a non-profit organization supported by the insurance industry) conducted a study to determine if accident victims get more money when they have a lawyer. On average, accident victims who used a lawyer got 3 ½ times as much money in settlements than if they represented themselves.
