You should consult with a lawyer if you have been seriously injured by another motorist or if you disagree with an insurance company’s assessment of fault in an accident. Hiring a lawyer shows an insurance company that you are serious about being treated fairly.

An attorney who is experienced at handling car accident cases will explain your legal options and will have an informed perspective on the fair value of your claim including medical bills, loss of income and other expenses. An experienced attorney will negotiate with the insurance company for a settlement that reflects the full value of your claim and will not let an insurance company take advantage of you.
