You definitely do not need an attorney for every small injury case. In fact, our office does not even accept cases where there’s little or no property damage or the injuries are minor. Why not? In small cases, the attorney’s fee and costs might leave little or nothing for you after your medical bills are paid, and that is not fair to you. While you may not need a lawyer to represent you in a small injury case, you should at least educate yourself and speak with a lawyer. Remember most lawyer’s initial consultations are free. Even if you do not have a case (sometimes this is the best advice you can get), you should meet with a lawyer before you sign any forms or speak with the insurance adjuster.
