You may think you do not need an attorney. But an experienced attorney will help guide you through the myriad of legal pitfalls and issues that may arise. Some considerations include finding the right doctor, finding out who has insurance and how much, who is legally responsible, is there additional insurance such as uninsured motorist, what doctor will see me, what is a letter of protection. And on and on. Not to mention the fact that it is extremely difficult to represent yourself. Attorneys typically don’t do it either, and there is a common saying that an attorney who represents himself has a fool for a client.
