FAQ: Do I need a personal injury attorney? Should I get a lawyer after a car accident? Is it worth it to hire a lawyer?

Many times, clients will call our office and ask us: do I need a lawyer? The answer is, it depends. If you are hurt, and you are seeking treatment for your injuries; yes, you need a lawyer. The insurance company is in the business of saving money. They want to nickel and dime you, stall you out, and frustrate your claims process so that you eventually throw your hands up and say forget this! Insurance companies make or lose money based on the amount of claims they pay or don’t pay. Can you blame the adjusters for trying to get the best deal for their company? Many times, the adjuster’s bonuses are tied to how much they pay out in claims. The less they pay out in claims, the more their bonus! Yikes!
