Do I need a lawyer after Ive been in a car crash?
Hi. This is Lucas Foust from Foust Law Office, and I'm here to answer a quick question that may not be so quick. And the question that I receive from people is, "Do I need a lawyer after I've been in a car crash?" Well, the answer to that question might be no. There are a lot of cases where you just simply can handle the case yourself and settle a claim without the involvement of an attorney. This is especially true if the injuries that you've sustained only require one, two, maybe even $3,000 in medical bills to be paid as a result of the crash. For this reason, I encourage you to educate yourself as much as possible and learn as much as you possibly can before you begin to discuss your case with that insurance adjuster.
So the answer to the question, "Do I need a lawyer?" It depends. Depends on how serious the crash is. A lot of crashes, you can handle yourself. At Foust Law Office, we're happy to provide you with any information that we can provide to help you navigate the process of settling your own automobile crash case. I encourage you to download our book, Abandoned on the Road, a guide to insurance law in Montana. At Foust Law Office, we believe that an informed client and an informed citizenry is a better client and a better citizen.
