Should You Hire an Attorney After a Car Accident?

If you or a loved one are involved in an automobile accident that results in serious injuries, it’s obvious that you should hire a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. But what if you only have a minor injury? Do you still need a lawyer? The answer to that is that while it may not be necessary to hire an attorney for a minor injury, it’s still a good idea to consult one. That’s because what appears to be a minor injury at the time can begin causing you pain and serious medical complications weeks or even months after the accident occurs.

You should also be aware that most personal injury attorneys will provide you with a free consultation after an accident. Since it will not cost you anything, the smart thing to do is to take advantage of the consultation in case you end up suffering medical complications at a later date.

Another thing you should consider is that insurance companies (even your own insurance company) are only concerned with their bottom line – which involves denying claims whenever possible and paying out only the smallest settlements they can get away with. If you end up having medical complications at a later date, they will not be likely to help you.

The bottom line is that it’s always best to at least consult a personal injury attorney if you have suffered even a minor injury in an auto accident. They will make sure your rights are protected, explain your options and help you get the compensation you will need if you suffer complications from your injuries in the future.
