QUESTION: I was recently injured in a car accident and lawyers and/or their investigators are trying to have me hire them. Is this proper?

ANSWER: The short answer is no. It is not ethical for a lawyer or a person acting on behalf of a lawyer solicit a client following an accident. If a lawyer is willing to violate the ethical rules, you should not trust that lawyer to ethically represent you.

QUESTION: I was recently involved in a car accident, what should I do to protect my rights?

ANSWER: First, if you are injured make sure that you get the proper medical attention as soon as possible. Second, make sure you put your insurance carrier on notice of the accident and third do not speak to anyone representing the other driver or the other driver's insurance company until you have consulted with a lawyer. We handle cases on a contingency fee basis, so there is no fee for simply consulting with us.

QUESTION: Won't my insurance company protect me after my car accident?

ANSWER: That would be wonderful, but no, you cannot rely on any insurance company, including yours, to be on your side after an accident. The more severe your injuries, the less likely you are to be a good investment for an insurance company. If they can wriggle out of their obligation to pay your claims, they will do so. If they can trick you into agreeing to a lower settlement figure than you deserve, they will do so. Insurance companies like healthy, uninjured clients. Once you actually make a claim, you should treat the insurance company like an adversary.

QUESTION: Do I need a lawyer to handle my car accident case?

ANSWER: That depends on a number of factors. If your injuries were minor, it is possible that the insurance company will offer you a reasonable settlement even if you are unrepresented. In general, it is a good idea to speak to an attorney before signing anything from the insurance company. Many personal injury attorneys offer a free consultation and will tell you whether they can improve your position by taking the case.
