Should I get an attorney after a car accident?
You should at least consult with an attorney after a car accident. Sometimes, it is difficult to size up your injuries and their long term impact on your own. An experienced attorney can assist you in that evaluation process, and can help you determine if hiring an attorney is advisable in your situation.
When should I get an attorney for a car accident?
You should enlist the help of a lawyer to determine if it is in your interest to retain legal counsel. You should contact a lawyer immediately to determine what type of legal assistance you will need going forward.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident that was my fault?
You should seek the guidance of an attorney whether or not the accident was caused by you. To determine if you are required to compensate someone for an injury you caused, Kansas applies a ‘modified comparative negligence’ rule.
In summary, this rule states that if an injured person cannot seek recovery of an injury if the injured person more than the negligence of the person who caused the accident. And even if the injured party is less at fault for the accident than the other party, the amount that the court may order the person who caused the injury to pay may be reduced by whatever negligence the injured party may have contributed to the accident.
As you can see from a very brief explanation of this rule, there are several fact specific considerations that should be evaluated by an attorney.
Should I get a lawyer for a car accident that wasn’t my fault?
Yes, you should get a lawyer for a car accident when it was not your fault. While representing yourself is always an option, you will likely be dealing with an insurance company with far more resources that an individual person. An insurance company’s bottom line is not as profitable if they pay every claim submitted to them. Additionally, the insurance company may employ experienced claims adjusters and their own team of lawyers to avoid paying out on polices where they can do so. To put it simply, you should have your own attorney.
Should I hire a lawyer for a minor car accident?
You should consult with an attorney, even if the accident seems minor. Determining if a situation is ‘minor’ enough to not include an attorney requires some knowledge and experience to determine. Also, with some injuries, the initial prognosis may be that the injury is not very severe. However, if the injury does not heal, and a full recovery is not made, then further testing might review a permanent, and therefore more substantial, injury. One mistake a person can make when dealing with a personal injury is to settle for too little. Sometimes you cannot know that an injury is minor until some time and treatment passes.
