There’s no law that requires you to hire an attorney to help you with your car accident, but I believe the best advice is that you do have an attorney representing you right from the beginning. There are many reasons for that. To begin with, dealing with insurance issues and all of the other complexities of car accidents can be confusing. It can be time-consuming. It requires a lot of detail.

Attorneys can be of great assistance when you’re dealing with insurance adjusters who have a vast amount of experience, compared to probably your own, in trying to settle cases. Their responsibility is to their insurance company, to save them money, not to help you. In addition to that, attorneys come in pretty handy when you’re dealing with issues like releases. Settling a case requires often that the money be held in trust, so you need an escrow account. Often dealing with medical providers, doctors, letters of protection maybe required if you’ve run out of insurance money to cover those expenses and don’t have the money to pay for those medical bills as you go. There are a lot of good reasons to have an attorney involved.
