Do I need an attorney to handle this?

May 15, 2020 By John Torgenson

This answer depends on a number of factors. The primary factor is typically the severity of your injuries. For example, in a car accident, if you suffered minor injuries that require little to no medical treatment and do not require emergency room treatment, and you only had minor property damage, you may not need an attorney. In these cases, the insurance companies will likely, but not always, be willing to quickly settle your claim.  In cases like this, in may not be necessary to pay an attorney to resolve your claim (although we always encourage you to call us to determine if you need an attorney – we take these calls all of the time).

On the other hand, if you suffer injures where emergency room care is necessary due to the negligence of another, hiring an attorney is likely in your best interest. As Arizona personal injury attorneys, our Torgenson Law legal team is devoted to fighting for injured people. We are armed with the law and knowledge to fight insurance companies who purposely undervalue personal injury claims and take advantage of personal injury victims. Additionally, if the circumstances surrounding your injuries are complex, an attorney is vital for analyzing your case and the law to establish liability on another party. Regardless of your injuries or the circumstances surrounding your claims, hiring an honest, hard-working, and experienced personal injury attorney will add value to your claim. We, at Torgenson Law, are confident in our abilities to satisfy your needs.

When in doubt, give us a call and we will shoot it to you straight.  If you need us, we are ready.  If you may do better without us, we will let you know that, too.
