Many persons involved in a car accident believe they do not need an attorney to handle their case. This is a common mistake made by victims of car accidents.
Insurance companies are quick to contact victims of car accidents to secure a statement and/or settlement before the victim has had an opportunity to consult with an attorney. It is very unlikely that the insurance company will make a fair offer if the insurance company knows the victim is not attorney represented.
