– We’re with John Kelly, John Kelly’s a personal injury attorney in Phoenix, Arizona, and he’s agreed to answer some online questions for us. A specific question was, “John, do I need to hire a lawyer after a car accident?”

– Thank you Ryan for the question. You know, there’s a good reason that people need to at least call an attorney up and talk to them about their accident. You know, any time someone’s in an accident, they’re stressed out, they are injured, potentially, they have medical expenses, they have doctor’s appointments, and, to worry about the legal aspect of making a claim is not necessarily on the top of their list, but, to be honest, sometimes it should be. And attorneys, you know, if you get a good attorney, they’re not gonna be pressuring you, they’re not gonna make you come in immediately, they’re not gonna tell you that you have to sign away your potential settlement. They’re gonna sit down with you and tell you, “Here’s what you’re facing, here’s some ideas of what you might want to do moving forward.” For most personal injury attorneys, that initial consultation, completely free, don’t have to worry about putting down money for that. So it’s no pressure. You come in, you speak to an attorney, sits down with you and makes you feel comfortable, and talks you and walks you through the process, and tells you what you need to know, moving forward. Now, most attorneys will tell you, “Look, there is a lot of hiccups that come with these kind of cases, you may wanna consider hiring an attorney, because these insurance companies aren’t necessarily your best friend. They may want to get a statement from you right away, they may want to try to settle your claim as soon as possible, and send you a check and say, “Look, sign off on your settlement,” before you even know what your injuries are, so that’s, you know, a dangerous situation, and you don’t want to fall prey to that. So, I would suggest that anyone that has this type of situation at least call an attorney, tell them the facts of your case, walk them through it. Most attorneys will take the time to sit down with you and say, “Look, here’s what I think about your case, here’s your potential issues moving forward, here’s some things you can do to make sure that you’re not losing your direction moving forward and can potentially make a good claim here, and get a settlement.” So, if you have those kind of issues, you can call my firm, and most attorneys will do that for you.
