Do I need a lawyer to help me with my accident case?

You do not always need a lawyer to help you with your accident case.

Some claims, especially where there is little damage to the car, minimal medical expenses and/or lost wages, have such a small value that hiring a lawyer makes little sense, because after the lawyer is paid there will be few dollars left for you. But in all but these very small claims, you should hire a qualified personal injury and accident lawyer to represent you.
