Do I always need to hire a lawyer?

The short answer is no. Cases that involve a small amount of damage to the involved vehicles and relatively minor injuries that heal quickly do not justify the involvement of an attorney. We recognize that other firms maintain the position that you should have a lawyer on each and every automobile accident case. We simply do not agree with this philosophy.

If you have a relatively small accident case, the involvement of a lawyer is not going to improve the outcome enough to warrant paying that lawyer's fees. We do not take those kinds of cases for this very reason. We are not a firm who signs up everyone who comes through the door. We only take on cases where our representation will provide meaningful help.

If you are in a serious car accident and have been told that you could possibly have permanent injuries as a result, it is very important that you obtain competent and qualified counsel to handle your claim. Insurance companies are not in the business of paying large claims voluntarily, easily, or without a fight. It is very important that you retain counsel who has a wealth of experience with the kind of accident and injuries that you have. It is also important that whoever you hire has a successful track record both in settling such claims and taking them to trial.
