Frequently Asked Questions


Do I need a lawyer to file a personal injury claim?


You are not required to hire an attorney, but it is usually in your best interests, especially if liability is not clear-cut. People who handle their own personal injury claims usually have difficulty making legal decisions. Your attorney should be a skilled negotiator who conducts a professional investigation and is knowledgable concerning your rights. If you file a lawsuit for damages, you will most likely need an attorney to represent you.

Do I have to go to court if I want to recover money damages?

The simple answer is maybe. Your case may settle even before your attorney files a lawsuit; on the other hand, it may go all the way to a trial and a jury verdict. The majority of lawsuits are settled before they get to trial, but what happens in your case depends on the facts, the law and the parties involved.
