Do You Need an Attorney for a Car Accident?

Whether you need a lawyer for a car accident in D.C., Virginia or Maryland depends on a number of different factors.  Car accident cases for serious injuries can be complicated in the DMV, especially if the accident occurs in one state but the insurance coverage is in another state, plus the medical treatment could be in a different jurisdiction as well.

We see this a lot in the DMV.

Here are some of the factors to consider on whether you need an attorney for a car accident:

  • The severity of your injuries is the number one factor - if you have a minor injury and don't need much medical treatment and haven't missed time from work, you can probably handle that car accident claim yourself.  On the other hand, if you have a serious injury - broken bones, surgery, hospitalizations caused by the accident, you probably need a lawyer to get the best result for your car accident.
  • Insurance coverage for the accident is critical - evaluating and analyzing uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage, commercial insurance policies and other insurance coverage, like workers comp (if you were working at the time of the accident) are things an experienced attorney for car accidents does every day, especially in the DMV, where the different laws in D.C., Maryland and Virginia could impact your car accident claim.
  • Do you have the time and experience to handle your own car accident case?  Again, if the injuries are minor, you probably do, but if you're struggling with rehab after surgery, expensive, ongoing medical treatment and worried about whether you can go back to work because of the accident, you probably need an attorney for the car accident to take care of all of this for you (at least that's the way we do it - we focus on taking away the stress, anxiety and worry so you can focus on getting better).
