A common question that I hear in my practice is: “Do I need to hire a Personal Injury attorney after an accident in Pennsylvania ?” The answer is sometimes yes and sometimes no.
Just because you’ve been injured in an accident that doesn’t mean that you have to hire an attorney to represent you. The accident might not have been caused by someone else’s carelessness. So you might not have a legal claim.
Even if you do have a legal claim, your injuries might not have beenserious enough to justify the hiring of an attorney. In these situations, you might not have a valid legal claim, or if you do, the claim might not be significant enough to justify actually hiring an attorney.
Regardless of whether or not you think you have to hire an attorney, it’s advisable to meet with an experienced personal injury attorney as soon as possible after an accident. These initial consultations are free of charge and allow you to get expert advice as to whether you have a claim and whether you need to hire an attorney.
