Do Accident Victims Need to Retain an Attorney?

If you have been hurt in an accident, you may be wondering whether you need to retain an attorney., especially if you have already been contacted by an insurance company that is offering you money for your injuries. All accident victims should speak with an attorney regarding their accident. In many accident cases, victims who are not sure whether they have a claim are actually entitled to a significant amount of money, so it is always a good idea to have your case reviewed by an attorney. In addition, even if an insurance company is making a settlement offer, you should talk to a lawyer to make sure that you get the full value of your claim. Remember, the insurance company is under no obligation to make a reasonable settlement offer and simply wants to minimize the amount they pay
