Q. Do I need a lawyer if I’m injured in a car accident?

A. Yes! Your lawyer can resolve the property damage (free of charge), get you a rental car, recoup the diminished value of the vehicle, help with Personal Injury Protection (PIP), and find additional coverage.

Your lawyer knows the value of the case based on trying similar cases and will provide leverage against the insurance company. He or she will also negotiate health insurance liens and outstanding medical bills. So get the best personal injury trial lawyer you can find as early as possible.
