When Should You Hire An Attorney After A Car Accident?

Car accidents happen in what seems like an instant and can leave a tremendous and lasting impact on your life. Even if you were involved in a minor fender bender, you may be wondering if you should hire an attorney. In cases where no one was hurt and there was little to no damage, it may not be necessary to seek the services of a personal injury lawyer.

That said, it’s important to keep in mind that insurance companies invariably want to settle cases for as little as possible. They will not hesitate to take advantage of unrepresented victims and pressure them to settle their cases for far less than their cases are worth.

The attorneys at Krause and Kinsman Law Firm are familiar with the way insurance companies operate and can help you negotiate a higher settlement. We will also provide you with a potential estimate of your medical expenses, including all future expenses. An experienced personal injury attorney understands that even seemingly minor injuries like whiplash can result in more significant issues that incur costly medical expenses. If you’re still unsure if you should hire an attorney, take advantage of a free, in-person consultation to determine if hiring one of our Kansas City personal injury lawyers would be the right decision for you.
