If you have been involved in a car accident, you might be curious about whether or not you should contact an attorney. There are several factors you should take into consideration to determine if it is in your best interest to consult with a car accident lawyer.
If you were not injured as a result of the car accident, you most likely do not need to contact an attorney. However, if you or a loved one was injured in the accident, you should contact a lawyer so that they can represent you in a claim against the person who was responsible for the injuries that were sustained. If the accident was a simple fender bender and no one was hurt, the insurance company is usually willing to handle the issue and there is no need to contact a lawyer.
There are several situations where it is a good idea to immediately consult with a lawyer. If there was an injury that resulted in broken bones or hospitalization, it is in your best interest to immediately consult with an attorney. If a death has resulted from the accident and fault was clearly an issue, you need to consult with an attorney. If you have no insurance or the liability of your insurance is low, seeking an attorney as soon as possible is a good idea.
