Do I Need an Attorney if I Was Involved in a Car Accident?

That depends on the extent of your damages. If you suffered serious injuries in the accident and believe that someone else was at fault, then you should likely hire an attorney. On the other hand, if you suffered a mild injury such as a sprained wrist and minimal property damage, then it is likely not worth your while to hire an attorney.

Do I Need an Attorney if the Insurance Company is Offering Me a Settlement?

Once again, it depends on the specifics of the case. If you are dealing only with property damage and the settlement they are offering is in line with the value of your property, then you likely do not need an attorney. However, if you have suffered serious injuries or incurred significant financial damages, then you should consider talking to an attorney.

No matter how the insurance company might make it sound, the first offer they provide is not likely to be the full amount of your damages. An experienced personal injury attorney can help negotiate so that you get the best possible outcome for your case.

How Do I Get the Best Chance of a Higher Settlement?

First and foremost, hire an attorney. Study after study shows that when an injured party hires an attorney, they are likely to receive higher settlements than if they did not hire an attorney. You can also ensure that you report the accident to the police, you see a doctor and follow their instructions, and that you document your pain and suffering along the way.
